Sonoport Singapore is running a competition for the sonification of its animated visual logo. Using the Sound Animator, you have to create a new sonic identity that represents sound & creativity + cutting edge technology & coding. An international jury of sound experts will choose the winner.
4th of September 2015 (CLOSED)
The visual logo has 3 components: the sound wave, the shell, and the treble clef. Sonoport is creating the world’s largest sound archive, which includes sound effects, field recordings, music loops, acoustic and synth sounds. Therefore, you can use any of these sound contents to build your sound logo.
The rhythm of the visual animation combines smooth transitions with a fast pace. This is the balance between Sonoport’s two main values: sound & creativity + cutting edge technology & coding. The sound logo must include these two components.
Using the Sound Animator’s special features you can create an interactive sound logo. If you wish, you can boost your sounds with interactivity!
Submissions are open from the 13th of August to the 4th of September 2015. The competition award is a cash prize of US$ 1,500.
The winner will be contacted for all the admin procedures after announcement.
