Call for Creators: Apply for the Sónar Innovation Challenge

This year the MTG is once again collaborating with the Sónar+D festival to organize the Sónar Innovation Challenge (SIC).
SIC is a platform for the collaboration between innovative tech companies and the creative community (programmers, designers, artists) that aims to produce disruptive prototypes to be showcased in Sonar+D. The interaction between companies and creators happens through challenges proposed by the companies themselves. Challenges are open questions to the creative community, that can be approached from a technical and/or artistic perspective.

The call for creators is open

Creators from all around the world can sign up to participate in a challenge through the SIC website. After a selection process that considers background, gender balance, diversity and motivation, each challenge gets a team of 5 creators to work in a prototype within a unique collaborative environment together with company mentors. More information about how does the Sónar Innovation Challenge work can be found here.

Open challenges are the following:

  1. The composer’s assistant, sponsored by Jukedeck
  2. The future of education, sponsored by Alpha
  3. Music learning tools for people with motor disabilities, by the Music Technology Group (UPF)
