Local television and radio personality Carol Ofori has cemented herself as a stand-out voice over artist. The multi-faceted personality is the voice behind many of your favourite radio and television adverts as well as behind one of the largest radio stations in the country.
As she continues to make waves in the space, Carol is proud to reveal that she has been nominated at the international SOVAS Voice Arts® Awards.
The Voice Arts® Awards is uniquely designed to honour the community of performers and craft professionals who perform, direct, produce, cast, engineer, and publish media productions where voice acting is a central creative element of the work. The purpose of the Voice Arts® Awards is to provide a stage for international acknowledgment of the extraordinary skill and artistry that goes into voiceover acting and to hold up an evolving best-in-class standard of achievement to which the voiceover industry can continually aspire.
The awards are similar to the Oscars, Emmys, and Tonys, where the work is entered in various categories, judged and scored by a panel of industry experts, and where the top 5 scores in each category become nominees. A final round of judging determines the winner in each category.
Carol has been nominated in the Outstanding Commercial – Radio or Streaming – Best African Voiceover category for her performance in the Ratings For Schools radio advert which flighted on East Coast Radio.
Coincidentally, Ratings For Schools is the platform which Carol started with her husband Greg Ofori. Ratings For Schools offers parents, students, and educators the opportunity to find schools based on their individual needs. The goal is to assist parents across the country by making the process of finding the right school for their children simpler than ever before. Parents can find schools from Creche to High School level, and it is entirely free to use.
“I am so excited about this nomination,” Carol exclaims. “To be recognised on the continent is something really special. The Ratings For Schools advertisement was one I had written and voiced myself. It’s so fun and catchy. Not only does this nomination recognise the hard work I put into my voiceovers, but to the detail in my scriptwriting as well. For it all to be about the business my husband and I started is the cherry on top!”
Previous winners at the SOVAS Voice Arts® Awards include Sigourney Weaver, Jonah Hill, Cate Blanchett, Kit Harrington and Kristin Wiig.
