History of AMPS Awards

The AMPS Annual Awards were inaugurated as part of the 25th Anniversary celebrations in 2014.  It started with the AMPS Award for Excellence in Sound for a Feature Film.  From the films that were exhibited in 2013, a large committee of sound professionals determined five titles for nomination, the whole of the AMPS Voting Membership was then balloted to decide the winner.

In the second year (2015), the AMPS Award for Excellence in Sound for a Television Drama was introduced.  A chance for the AMPS membership to vote for what they deemed to be the best television drama soundtrack.

The creation of awards for sound was an agenda item at AMPS first Council meeting in 1989, 25 years later we realised that aim, and the AMPS Awards, now in their 6th year, are gaining recognition and prestige throughout the industry.

The leading crew members from Production Sound, Sound Editing and Re- Recording for the winning production each receive the AMPS trophy.  Other crew members who have creatively contributed to the winning soundtrack receive Certificates of Merit.  AMPS intends to expand the Awards program in future years to include additional creative sound crew members.

AMPS is profoundly grateful to Dolby Laboratories, Sennheiser, Twickenham Film Studios and Goldcrest for their generous sponsorship of our Awards.
