IYS International Student Competition – EXTENSION

Student Competition Updates

Update IYS – 7 December 2020 – The IYS Student competition was first launched in late 2019 with the deadline for submissions being the end of 2020. The enthusiasm and efforts of the competition organiser Sergio Luzzi and his team in Italy has been outstanding.

In view of the many challenges during the later part of 2020 it has been agreed to extend the deadline from end of December to end of April 2021. This allows for extra school terms in both the northern and southern hemisphere.

Updated information on the competition are available at https://sound2020.org/society/student-competition/. Rules for the participation and submission details at: IYS-2020_Competition-Regulations.

The students of primary schools are asked to produce drawings inspired by the motto of IYS 2020 “Importance of Sound for Society and the World” and, possibly, by melody and refrain of the song “The Sound of The World”. The students of high schools are asked to write a stanza of 4 verses (lines) in their mother tongue and/or in English, inspired by the melody and the refrain of the song “The Sound of The World” as well as by the motto of IYS 2020 “Importance of Sound for Society and the World”.

Competitions organized by La Semaine du Son

In conjunction with the International Year of Sound, the partner organisation, La Semaine du Son, has launched a competition for tertiary students “2068, MAKE PLACE FOR SOUND!”.

The aim of this competition is to encourage students specializing in space design to collaborate with students specializing in sound by developing thoughts on the sound design of our living spaces, beyond the question of noise control, in order to imagine the soundscapes of to-morrow’s public places. This competition is open for students of architecture, urban planning, landscape, design, art, engineering, audio engineering, music, engineering, design, etc.

 

 

Another competition for students by La Semaine du Son is on the theme “WHEN SOUND CREATES IMAGE”.

Students are provided with a sound track composed by a well-respected film score composer and the challenge is to provide a video to complement the music.

Deadlines for both these competitions are currently end of December.
