Hey everybody! Let’s play the “What would you do if you had a million dollars?” game! Unfortunately, due to recent changes in corporation policy and budget cuts, you’ll only have 10,000 USD to play with. And it will have to go towards something music / audio related. Wait, that’s still totally awesome. But don’t tell me what you would do with the cash. Go and tell the guys over at Sennheiser. Their Sound Tour Hookup Challenge can give you and five friends the chance to spend ten thousand bucks on whatever crazy audio scheme you can think of.
Entries so far range from flying to a festival in Europe, having your favorite band play a private party, building a recording studio, etc. But there’s no limit on what you can ask for. The entry mediums are pretty open-ended too. YouTube videos, essays, photo journals. You have until December 23rd to get yours in.
The winner will be picked sometime in January 2010 by a panel of Sennheiser executives based on the following criteria.
- Sennheiser product integration – 40%
- The ability to show appreciation of sound – 25%
- Creativity and overall appeal – 25%
- Entry must show the integration of 5 friends – 10%
But wait! There’s more! You can go and vote for other submissions that you like, entering you in a weekly drawing for a pair of Sennheiser headphones.
As for me, I’d probably buy an analog Neve 88R console. Ten grand should be enough to buy maybe one channel strip.
