The Pensado Awards has announced this year’s pro committee—made up of artists, engineers, producers and industry notables, who together will serve as the judging panel for the awards.
This year’s festivities will take place on Saturday, Aug. 20, at Sony Pictures Studios. The awards will be held outdoors in Calley Park in the middle of the Sony Pictures Studios lot. A VIP reception will be held on the complex’s Main Street area, and an afterparty will take place in the Sony Commissary, which is connected to the park. Co-hosts will include producer/engineer Chris Lord-Alge (Pink, Foo Fighters, Avril Lavigne, Green Day), recording/mix engineer MixedByAli (Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Robin Thicke) and mastering engineer Gavin Lurssen (Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow, T-Bone Burnett). Tickets for the live ceremony are available for $50.00 here.

Created by Trawick and Pensado of Penwick Media (the producers of Pensado's Place and other industry-leading audio-related media), the Pensado Awards were founded as a means of acknowledging talented music producers, engineers, mixers and their work, serving as a grand opportunity for the best pros, amateurs, brands and press to come together as one community to celebrate the uncelebrated.
