SoundExchange Named As Finalist In Two Categories For The 2013 American Business Awards(SM)

WASHINGTON, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SoundExchange was named a finalist in two categories for The 2013 American Business Awards – "Company of the Year - Non-Profit" and for "Communications Campaign of the Year - Low Budget." As a result, the organization will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie® Award winner in the program.

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. 

SoundExchange submitted for consideration to receive the award, with competition from more than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes this year. SoundExchange is in the running for "Company of the Year - Non-Profit" for its 2012 organizational accomplishments, and "Communications Campaign of the Year - Low Budget" for its campaign announcing an industry milestone of $1 billion digital performance royalties paid to recording artists and record labels to date. 

"It is an honor to be recognized as a finalist in the American Business Awards, which acknowledges our efforts representing the entire music community in the digital age," said SoundExchange President Michael Huppe. "We remain committed to our work supporting, protecting and propelling the music industry forward. We are proud to receive recognition for our accomplishments achieved in partnership with the creative community."

Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of nine specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging, to take place May 13-24, 2013.  

The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Monday, June 17, 2013 – in Chicago for the first time, after 10 years in New York; and the new product & technology awards event on Monday, September 16, 2013 in San Francisco.

Details about the awards are available at www.StevieAwards.com/ABA.
