Sound Recording Tips Scholarship Program 2021


We are a team of audio engineers and videographers. We make travel vlogs, podcasts, wildlife documentaries, and short films and suffered greatly due to poor-quality microphones in the initial phase of our journey. And now, we are very much knowledgeable about the best way of recording sounds.

So we decided to help our community by choosing the Best Shotgun Microphones. We want to help our community in another way, too, by awarding scholarships. For that purpose, we are inviting college and university students from the media sciences to share their research about recording sounds and some useful tips. In return, we will award scholarships worth 500 USD to 5 students who will perform best in their research relating to recording sounds.

It will help us spread all the knowledge related to audio recording, and our community will benefit a lot from it. Also, students will be able to have a better future ahead.
