Calling All Audio Description Narrators. We want to CELEBRATE you!

2021 has been an exciting year on the Audio Description (AD) front. As a member of the blind/low vision community, I’m thrilled that your amazing art is being recognized on a broader scale.

As you may know, among the inclusive AD events, are the new categories for AD Narrators at this years’ Voice Arts Awards. Recognized as voice acting’s biggest stage, the Voice Arts Awards are hosted by The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences (SOVAS).

What is particularly noteworthy about this years’ event is the collaboration between SOVAS and Bold Blind Beauty. SOVAS embraced our A.I.R. (Accessibility, Inclusion, and Representation) philosophy and in turn, we were thrilled to help them spread the word. Bold Blind Beauty is offering a special discount code for 30% off the price through the closing date of September 10th. To take advantage of this offer use the code BoldBlindBeauty.

2021 Voice Arts Awards Open For Entries

Back in June, we were delighted to feature the amazing talents of Joe Cipriano and Pete Gustin in Audio Description Going To the Voice Arts Awards. Without giving too much away, in this short video, Joe and Pete talk about AD and how the judging process works. Without further ado here are Joe and Pete. Enjoy!

Spreading The Word

At Bold Blind Beauty we are passionate about A.I.R. because we intimately understand the disadvantages of exclusion. Since AD was created by blind people for blind people, being able to elevate Audio Description Narrators is paramount.

Time is running out! Bold Blind Beauty is offering a special discount code for 30% off the price through the closing date of September 10th. To take advantage of this offer use the code BoldBlindBeauty.
