International Year of Sound 2020-2021

About the Year of Sound

The Year of Sound is an international celebration of sound and how it enters our lives in so many ways.

Become a Sponsor

Many organizations have provided financial support for the International Year of Sound. The Founding Members were especially important as their early funding enabled the many steps leading to the declaration of an international year.

The contributions from other organizations and societies will support many aspects of the International Year of Sound, including the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, assistance to developing nations for their outreach activities, and student assistance.

The International Year of Sound invites Companies and Organizations to share with the IYS 2020 partners and Founding Members the emotion of the celebration of sound during the year 2020 by becoming general sponsors, or sponsors of specific events.

Sponsorship confirmation must be received by 20 January to be included in the Opening Program material
