The Sound Advice Awards was a visual and sonic carnival of a ceremony, it showcased the work of undervalued and alternative spatial practitioners who are leading the architecture and urbanism industry towards the delivery of a more equitable city.

The awards acted as a form of knowledge exchange between the practioners that introduced the audience to wider community of practice. These communities of practice needed to include expanded and emerging forms of practice that have traditionally been working on the margins of the industry or not considered relevant. Sound Advice used the spectacle of an award ceremony as a tool to refocus the lens of the architecture and urbanism industry adding value and visibility to new and hidden forms of spatial practice.
