How time flies! And how the world is still changing! (Thanks COVID.)

Yet, we’re happy that Sound Walk September, and the Sound Walk September Awards, are becoming a fixture of the yearly calendar.
This year, we had over 150 eligible submissions for the awards, meaning that trimming them down to a manageable shortlist was more difficult than ever.
In putting together the shortlist, we almost, nearly, came to blows. Almost, as the team behind walk · listen · create only physically occupied the same space, for the first time ever, after putting together the shortlist.

There has been a lot of excellent work which has been created this previous year.
One trend we identified, and which I also mentioned in one of our weekly mailings, is a shift to, what I like to define as, audio tours that incorporate location-based theatre.
At the same time, we’re also very happy to see that quite a few of you again tried their hands at creating more experimental sound walks.

Below, the shortlist for the 2021 Sound Walk September Awards. In alphabetical order:

Next, the SWS Board and jury will decide on the winner(s) and runner(s)-up. We are looking at the final announcement near the start of 2022. The year with the most numbers 2 you will ever experience.

In the meantime, over the next few months, we will ask the shortlisted creators to write a background on their individual works, perhaps also telling us how they have kept their creative juices flowing, hopefully inspiring you to pursue the same.

Curious to read what happened next? Read about the winners and honourable mentions.
