EMERGING VOICEOVER ARTIST WINNER

Nicholas O'Kelley - WINNER

"Nicholas’ shifts in energy and pitch are smart and engaging without feeling forced." - Hugh Bonneville
"Excellent clarity in voice and the message. Great flexibility, impeccable enunciation, voice acting and appropriate pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Loved the guy out of the gate, he had a twinkle to him, he grabbed attention but then stayed a little too much in one place. Tell the story more, tease empathise, take me on a journey. Make bolder choices, tell the story to someone, the more decisive you are about what you're saying to who and why, the more engaging you become." - Mark Estdale
"The last section of the copy was great-- very natural, like a trusted friend giving advice." - Catherine Melillo
"Fun, bright voice! Good pacing and solid ending!" - Kevin Miller
"It was a very confident reading, I liked his accent and generally a good delivery." - Andy Turvey

Paula Tinker

"Overall, good voiceover, clarity, flexibility, enunciation, voice acting and pacing, however, the ending needed to be stronger " - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Lovely voice, but too intense and pushy/fast. Urgency doesn't necessarily mean speed. Who is she? What is her relationship with the doctor?" - Mark Estdale
"Great work. Nice range and sense of urgency from the beginning to the end of this piece, and excellent diction throughout." - Catherine Melillo
"Great tone. A little rushed, so the words don’t sound like the character is hurrying but rather the actor is hurrying. Consider emoting words like “Oh” as sounds rather than actual words. However, it’s a believable delivery and clear understanding of the emotional beats. Demonstrates a real mastery of the material." - Kevin Miller
"Again a good read, bringing a real sense of desperation to the script. Nicely performed, but let down slightly by a rather 'roomy' studio." - Andy Turvey


Paul Watt

"Overall, very good voice over, clarity, flexibility, enunciation, voice acting and pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Recording quality was poor, too poppy - too close on mic. However, on self submissions, audio quality is never a decider so it wouldn't prejudice you. I liked your character, overall sense of high stakes but I wasn't quite convinced by who you were in relationship with the Doctor. Your character is making an appeal under pressure. Every word has intent. The more clear you are about why you're saying what you're saying the more powerful your performance will be. The tells are where you fade and swallow/garble words a bit. I felt that your character would have kept his cool more and been more articulate." - Mark Estdale
"Nice read. Be sure to remember the importance pacing can play. This is a speech that should build in intensity as it goes on. You began at such a quick pace that you didn't have anywhere to build to. As the script went on it felt like you were gradually slowing down." - Catherine Melillo
"Great voice, interesting breathy tone! The desperation at the end is fantastic! The rest of the piece could use the same sort of intensity and presence." - Kevin Miller
"Lovely energy in this read, and a sense of panic as to what was to happen next. I thought Paul lost a few words in his excitement, perhaps a little more enunciation needed." - Andy Turvey

Fran Burgoyne - WINNER!

"Overall a good voice over, clarity, flexibility, enunciation, voice acting and pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Engaging storytelling with good emotional connection." - Mark Estdale
"Great differentiation between characters and energy throughout. You have a beautifully crisp, clear vocal quality that's lovely to listen to." - Catherine Melillo
"Very present and real characters. Really draws the audience in. Great pace as a narrator, too. At moments quick and at others slow and intentional. Great use of paragraphs. Top marks! A very professional sound!" - Kevin Miller
"Good characterisation, good pacing and a confident read. I really enjoyed listening to this and wanted to hear more. Well done." - Andy Turvey

Lisa Armytage

"Overall very good voice over, clarity, vocal control, flexibility, enunciation, voice acting and pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"I loved this from the top. The old woman grabbed me straight away, good pace. I was engaged throughout, Keep going, I'd listen to this, get lost in this." - Mark Estdale
"Excellent diction and vocal quality. I did feel that you could pick up the pace a hair and cut out some of the more pregnant pauses." - Catherine Melillo
"Really great range of characters! Pace is a little slow and nearly sleepy and I had a hard time keeping track of the action. The ellipse at the end is a fun choice! Made me want to hear more!" - Kevin Miller
"A really assured confident read. A lovely voice and again I wanted to hear more. Good characters and pacing. Only slightly let down by some sort of processing sounds on the recording." - Andy Turvey
"Really good vocal range and I particularly enjoy Lisa’s pacing: never feels rushed, so that the listener is able to relax and enjoy the journey; you feel you’re in capable hands." - Hugh Bonneville


Emma Carter

"Excellent, engaging and creative throughout, the use of music helped to set the tone, excellent clarity in voice and message, range, flexibility, impeccable enunciation, voice acting and appropriate pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"No Music! Blasted in with too much weight. felt overwhelmed. Give the reader space to imagine, golden rule is less is more. The read got much better towards the end." - Mark Estdale
"Very nice job. The pacing did feel a little rushed at some points, so be careful not to get so caught up in the acting of the characters that it influences your read of the third person narrations." - Catherine Melillo
"Fun choice to give the teacher a raspy voice! Creates a real nice contrast to the narrator. The slight ethereal / fairytale tone of the narrator doesn’t seem to match the action and intensity of the scene. The narrator’s voice as a storyteller seems detached or distant from the story." - Kevin Miller
"A confident read with good characters. I liked the hint of music at the start and end. Emma just needed a better studio sound." - Andy Turvey

Jack Dundon - WINNER!

"Excellent. Strong, confident delivery, clarity in voice and message, range, flexibility, impeccable enunciation, voice acting and appropriate pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Great job. Just be careful not to start with the energy too high or you have nowhere to build to. A solid read, great energy." - Catherine Melillo
"Wonderful voice! Great dynamic range. Hits the high moments of the positive as well as the low moments of the negative. Good pacing, speeding up at spots and slowing down at other. And super fun to listen to. Does a good job of telling the story while selling the product. Demonstrates a real mastery of the material. Really fun to listen to! Great job!" - Kevin Miller
"A good engaging voice, confidently read, and good change from the body of the script to the tag line. Perhaps Jack could have got more comedy from the script with a slightly different interpretation." - Andy Turvey

Jodi Hutton

"Overall very good voice over, vocal tone nice, engaging, clear and light, needed more power and vocal energy "to make screen freeze a thing of the past", driving home the message." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Told the story, spoke to me and empathised, little vocalisations added to the personal touch. Nice." - Mark Estdale
"Very nice read. Beats were clear and you did an excellent job bringing your own personality to the copy. Very natural, conversational. It really felt like you had someone in mind you were speaking to. " - Catherine Melillo
"Great tone! The lists in the begging feel flat and like they’re just a list. The asides of “oh” and “hmm” are bold choices but I’d suggest trying to weave that thought into the read rather than comment on the copy with your own ad lib emotes. The direction and sell of the product at the end is SPOT ON. Perfect tone, pitch and brightness while conveying information!" - Kevin Miller
"A good commercial voice. There will doubtless be plenty of work in radio ads for you. Nicely delivered, and I liked the little ad libs." - Andy Turvey


Peter Halpin

"Peter’s delivery is fizzy, fun and has an endearing sense of the ridiculous, which let’s face it we all need when doing this sort of thing. He colours and lightens a text which might otherwise come across as a bit grey." - Hugh Bonneville
"Overall good voice over, clarity, flexibility, enunciation, voice acting and pacing, however requires more vocal range." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"Felt like you had made sensible choices about how to say words but then forgot the human objective - who you were, who you were talking to etc." - Mark Estdale
"Nice work. I did feel that you could have picked up the pacing a little bit. Be careful you're not trying too hard to push the humor. Conversational is the name of the game in commercial VO! Have a specific friend in mind that you're speaking to and find those relatable moments in the copy." - Catherine Melillo
"Super fun voice! Great, dry, snarky tone that’s fun to listen to! The material lends itself to a big, bright start and then a gloomy middle with resolve. The list of good things is bright but the list of bad news could have been heavier and sadder to create that contrast. The tone at the end however, feels right and the peace lands really well." - Kevin Miller
"A good read, and a nice sardonic tone to the body of the script. I feel Peter needed to just change that tone a little more for the tag line." - Andy Turvey

Maggie Bain - WINNER!

"Maggie perfectly captures the balance between narrative and character, deftly setting up a key story point while drawing us into the desperation of the character’s plight; impressively skilful." - Hugh Bonneville
"Excellent choice of delivery, great sense of urgency, believability and that there is a "catastrophe". engaging style / accent, excellent clarity in voice and message, range, power, flexibility, impeccable enunciation, voice acting and appropriate pacing." - Ashabi Ajikawo
"I felt you had made strong choices about who you were, and you put yourself firmly in a place with clear objectives. Bristling with intent and objective, strong focus. Feel free to drift from the script (unless told you cannot), repeat words, go in one direction and switch direction. You got the character under pressure but allow the character to live more beyond the actual words. don't add sound effects/music." - Mark Estdale
"Excellent job. Your performance was very grounded and natural, while still maintaining the high energy and drama necessary in video game VO." - Catherine Melillo
"So very nice. The breathing draws the audience in and serves the material really well. It could be distracting but rather it builds the scene and the breaths help make sense of the urgency of the copy. The shift in tone from thought to thought is natural and seamless. This was a very believable read and I especially liked the choice of how to end with “good luck.” Since this is a video game it’s likely that the “doctor” is the playable character (the person playing the video game). Which means in that moment you’re talking directly to the audience and that read is intriguing while suggestion “you better get to work player.” That’s really exciting. Nice job! Very polished. I would expect to hear this in a cut scene to a game!" - Kevin Miller
"A totally believable and convincing performance. Well done. Maggie certainly got the feeling of desperation across very well. I was captivated." - Andy Turvey

Michelle Campbell-Jones

"Overall very good voice over, clarity, flexibility, range, inflections, enunciation, voice acting and pacing" - Ashabi Ajikawo
"You made a good character choice, you added intensity but were weak on intent. I was with you at the start because of the character choice but I drifted as I couldn't sense why you were saying what you were saying. What did the statements mean to the character? Your character is under intense pressure so every point, every word is precious and has an objective. The question to ask is why am I saying this, what am I trying to achieve? The facts need emotional value. For example I couldn't determine the character's feelings about the dignitaries leaving and military arrival. It's a minor adjustment. Just make clear choices, be decisive. If this were an audition self submission you would be a callback to see how you could deeper own what you're saying." - Mark Estdale
"Nice interpretation of the material. You made some very specific character choices that really set your read apart." - Catherine Melillo
"Really dynamic start and the shift in tone from greeting the doctor to pleading for help is very nice. The middle section that explains the current situation feels like a list rather than a series of thoughts occurring to the character. The whispery choice on the title of the Genesis Project adds some nice texture and helps break up the pace!" - Kevin Miller
"Another great delivery conveying real emotion. I’m looking forward to hearing this voice in a block buster video game." - Andy Turvey

Heidi Kwiat

"Overall good voice over, however accent requires more clarity, more vocal range and more power in the voice " - Ashabi Ajikawo
"I liked the character, good choice but felt you kind of added one overall emotional tone to everything without thinking about the stakes and intent of each statement. You know the doctor, what buttons are you trying to push? You're under pressure so everything you're saying has clear purpose in itself. I didn't feel you felt this. I could condense your whole monologue to 'Doctor help us!' and would have got your overall intent which is good but every word has value and needs owning more." - Mark Estdale
"Nice work. I did feel that some of the urgency was missing from this read at certain moments. Be careful that the pauses you take have meaning, and don't worry so much about playing up the drama. " - Catherine Melillo
"Fantastic start! That “doctor” really gets the audience attention! There are some extra air gulps or commas that don’t seem to serve the material. The pacing doesn’t seem to match the urgency of the scene. The contrast between beats is really nice. Does a nice job of communicating desperation, pleading and then information as separate thoughts." - Kevin Miller
"Conveying a real sense of fear. another good performance. well done." - Andy Turvey

Submitting your Entry

You can enter one of four categories in our Voiceover Competition. If you have up to one year's experience in the voiceover industry, you must enter the Emerging Voiceover Artist category - this is dedicated to professionals just starting out (choose to perform one of our Audiobook, Commercial or Video Game scripts - you will only be judged against the other entries in the Emerging category). If you have more than one year of experience, you can enter the Audiobook, Commercial or Video Game category. Simply decide where your experience and talents best lie! You will only be judged against the other entries in your chosen category.

You'll find the submission process at the bottom of this page and submitting your entry couldn't be easier. We've broken it down into four simple steps:

  1. Pick which category you want to enter. You can find the Scripts for each category below:
    1. This is the only category you can enter if you have up to one year's experience (your first booked job, paid or unpaid) in the voiceover industry. You can perform and submit one script - choose between the Audiobook, Commercial or Video Game script below:

      Audiobook Script

      "If you don’t sit down this minute Winifred - there will be consequences!" bellowed Miss Fortitude. 

      "But Miss, I was just -"

      Miss Fortitude turned and started to walk stealthily towards Winifred’s desk, a low growl emitting from somewhere deep inside her.

      "Yes Miss Fortitude!", Winifred scrambled back into her chair and stared at her text book, trying to make out the words on the page as the tears swum in front of her eyes. It wasn’t fair, she thought, I always get the blame for everything and all I ever do is try and help. 

      She snuck a sideways glance at Miss Fortitude, who now seemed engrossed in picking at what was probably a flea caught in her wiry arm hair. Winifred sighed, she really was a formidable Lycan woman, if it wasn’t for her mean streak and odd odour, Winifred could almost have admired her. Rumour had it, she would have made the Olympic Were Pack had it not been for an unfortunate accident involving a pitchfork. But since she’d started at The Full Moon Academy, Miss Fortitude seemed intent on making Winifred’s life hell. It was almost as if she had an ancient vendetta against her...

      Commercial Script

      Voiceover: And it was all going so well...

      (Couple sit on the sofa fuming)

      Voiceover: You started the day with a virtual Yoga session, a couple’s meditation and experimented with a new Green smoothie recipe! You were the power couple! Nothing could stop you! You were ready to take on the World - one Virtual meeting at a time!

      (Couple on a health kick - lots of high fives and vitality)

      Voiceover: And then your work day started and your internet connection failed.

      (Alarm sounds: Couple working at opposite ends of a kitchen table - trying to have Zoom meetings simultaneously while homeschooling kids and struggling with internet connection.)

      Voiceover: Your company meeting was a disaster, you completely gave up on home schooling and your date night movie didn’t happen.

      (Moody couple, staring at a buffering screen)

      Voiceover: If only you’d gone to Mandy! Get set for the New Normal; Get high speed Internet connection with Mandy Broadband. Check out our current deals in your local area and make screen freeze a thing of the past.

      Video Game Script

      (Counsellor Drake sits down and starts a video recording, anxiously checking that no one is listening)

      Counsellor Drake: Doctor! I don’t know how much time I have so I’ll have to make this short! 

      Oh Doctor - we have missed you! It seems like a lifetime since we last received your counsel and so much has changed since then. Food supplies continue to dwindle - the last report revealed the true extent of the catastrophe and I fear the Empress has given up on finding a scientific solution to the problem.

      All dignitaries are to leave the Space Station immediately and the military are rumoured to be arriving within weeks. 

      Our only hope is the Genesis Project. I’m attaching our initial findings - I beg you to continue where I left off Doctor. We are so close! If anyone can finish the work and convince the Empress that our World still has a peaceful future it is you! 

      (Guards enter the room to escort the Counsellor to the passenger bay)

      (Whispering) Please Doctor - you are our last hope. Good Luck!

      (Recording ends)

      This is one of the three categories you can enter if you have more than one year's experience in the voiceover industry. Check out the script below:
