The Pensado Awards, an award show created by the producers of the acclaimed online video series Pensado’s Place, will take place on Sunday, August 30, 2015, at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA. AfterMaster® Audio Labs is serving as presenting sponsor. Pensado’s Place Title Sponsors include The Blackbird Academy, Audio-Technica, Vintage King, Izotope, The Recording Connection and Avid.
Last year’s ceremony hosted a crowd of over 600 recording industry figures, with the live ceremony highlighted by presentations from the likes of Neil Young and Sir Paul McCartney, some as proud nominees, some as presenters, some there to simply be a part of the evening – and this year’s show is set to be even bigger. The awards will be held outdoors under the stars in Calley Park in the middle of the Sony Pictures Studios lot.
