Dear all,

We are pleased to announce two prize awards for the 2018 Bird Audio
Detection challenge (running this year as part of the "DCASE" challenge

* £250: Highest-scoring open-source/reproducible method award
* £250: Judges' award for the method considered by the judges to be the
most interesting or innovative.

This is to encourage development in the important and growing topic of
automatic wildlife surveying.

Please share this with anyone you know who might be interested -
students, programmers, people who may be interested in bird sound. The
URL is:

The evaluation datasets will be published very soon, and then the
crucial period begins - when people can test their detection systems
against unseen data!

Best wishes
Dan Stowell, on behalf of the organising committee
