The Academy

The World Soundtrack Academy was created with the aim to organise and oversee the educational, cultural, professional and promotional aspects involved in the art of film music and soundtracks, including the preservation of its history as well as its worldwide promotion. This through the presentation of awards, aimed at the recognition of outstanding achievements, as well as through the development of other promotional activities. The Academy consists of non-voting members, namely partners and sponsors who would like to support the WSA financially, and voting members. Within the voting members, there is a distinction between regular voting members, the advisory board and the honorary board.
