Every year the Advisory Board of the World Soundtrack Academy chooses a ‘Discovery of the Year’ to celebrate emerging film composing talent. Famous composers as Klaus Badelt, Antonio Pinto, Craig Armstrong, Michael Giacchino, Gustavo Santaolalla, Nico Muhly, Abel Korzeniowski, Alex Heffes and last year’s Dan Romer were discovered by the WSA Advisory Board.
The Discovery of the Year Award is aimed at encouraging emerging talent, who at the current WSA eligibility deadline (June 30, 2014), have scored not more than six feature films in total (excluded are shorts, TV-formats & documentaries), which have had a commercial theatrical release. To qualify as an eligible score, the motion picture for which the score was composed/produced has to receive its world première screening between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014.
