2010 Sound On Sight Staff Awards

- Advertisement -

This December the Sound On Sight website will officially be two years old. In a short span of time we have quickly grown in popularity across the globe and certified a strong respected critical voice. Although most of us are not actual film critics but rather movie buffs, our team has time and time again exceeded any expectations in providing work of quality not quantity.

The Sound On Sight Staff Awards is not meant to be seen as a competition between our contributors. Instead it is really a way to say thank you to everyone who worked so hard. It is also meant to showcase some of our best work from the past twelve months. Here are the nominees. The winners will be announced on the 250th episode of Sound On Sight coming in December.
