DPA is holding a user contest, looking for new uses for a d:screet necklace microphone—like putting it on your pooch.
Alleroed, Denmark (September 3, 2014)—DPA Microphones has launched a competition offering the opportunity to win a d:screet Necklace Microphone, which was launched earlier this year.
The competition, running on DPA’s Facebook page and web site, asks contestants to come up with an ingenious idea for how and where to use the d:screet Necklace Microphone. Five microphones will be awarded to the five most “liked” submissions on Facebook. An additional 95 mics will be given to the people who, in DPA’s opinion, come up with the best, most creative and most original ideas.
“We are extremely excited about this product and want to share our enthusiasm with the rest of the world,” says DPA Microphones CEO Christian Poulsen. “We hope that people entering our competition will use their imagination to come up with some really inventive ideas to surprise and amuse us.”
DPA’s competition also has a second phase for those who win one of the initial 100 d:screet Necklace Microphones. Once a winner receives their microphone, they can enter the second phase by putting their idea in motion, documenting it and posting a picture or video to the company’s Facebook page. Two grand prize winners will receive a collection of DPA Microphones of their choosing, up to a value of $1,300 (list price).
All entries must be submitted by September 28, 2014. The 100 initial winners will be announced on October 1, 2014. Contestants can enter multiple ideas for an opportunity to win multiple Necklace Microphones, but only one microphone will be awarded per idea.
Entry to phase two of the competition will open after October 1, with the two ultimate winners announced on November 10, 2014. The first grand prize will go to the most liked picture or video on Facebook, while the second will go to the application idea that DPA perceives to be the best and most well documented.
