This second annual competition was presented by Get Mic'd, the voice over training company operated by well-known voice talents and coaches Deb Munro and Elley Ray Hennessey. The portal opened in September for audition entries, and enroute to the Grand Finale, we could listen to audition entries, the prize kitty grew, more than 15,000 votes were cast, and video episodes chronicled winners in many categories.
'WORLD WAS WATCHING'
Determining the winners from an abundance of talent "was not easy," Munro says. "The judges tossed and turned, kicked and screamed as they took on the daunting task of choosing from the tip six contestants."
Yet for entrants as well as winners, Munro figures the competition was a "career changing event."
"The world was watching, and many were approached by agents and decision-makers, enhancing their career and giving them a household name in voice! You helped us put our industry in the forefront and showed the world what we do."
SPECIAL MENTION CATEGORIES

Congratulations to all! And to Get Mic'd's Deb Munro and Elley Ray Hennessey for their tireless energy and time devoted to the giant success of Take 2.
