2015 VOICE ARTS® AWARDS
Jurors Announced For Voice Arts® Awards;
William Shatner To Receive 'Icon Award' At Gala
September 14, 2015
(VOXtra) - From his early Star Trek journeys to today's tongue-in-cheek TV commercials, William Shatner has been an acting and celebrity icon for our era - and on November 15 he'll be honored with the Voice Arts® Icon Award at the 2nd Annual Voice Arts® Awards Gala in Hollywood. Shatner's remarks promise to be memorable.
Yet center stage through most of the event will be the winners of this expanding voice over industry awards competition, presented by the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences™ (SOVAS).
The Gala will be held at the Pacific Design Center, starting with Red Carpet arrivals at 6 p.m. On the previous day, SOVAS presents its annual That's Voiceover™ Career Expo, also at the Pacific Design Center.
Entries to this year's awards program closed on August 31, and the number of entries "is up 300 percent" from the inaugural program in 2014, notes SOVAS Chairman and CEO, Rudy Gaskins.
SOVAS also recently announced who is judging the competition's entries, in their categories of expertise. Some jurors desired that their names be withheld until after the judging is concluded, SOVAS notes. But the list below is itself an impressive array of many of the voice over industry's top professionals.
