DPA is running a competition that will see 100 people given the chance to win its d:screet Necklace Microphones. The competition asks contestants to come up with an ingenious idea for how and where to use the d:screet mic.
In a highly original move (note sarcasm), competitors win by gaining the most likes on their FB submissions. Five microphones will be awarded to the five most liked submissions on Facebook, while the remaining 95 will be given to the people who, in DPA’s opinion, come up with the best, most creative and most original ideas.
The d:screet necklace mic, which was launched earlier this year, is a plug-and-play microphone, that houses a 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Capsule in a soft rubber necklace and is designed so that it can be used by anyone.
DPA’s CEO Christian Poulsen said how excited the company was about the competition, and mentioned that the mics have already been used for the Danish adaptation of Big Brother.
He went on to say, “We think there are plenty of other situations where their simplicity, audio quality and size make them ideal. We hope that people entering our competition will use their imagination to come up with some really ingenious ideas to surprise and amuse us.”
There’s also has a second phase, which will be open to those who win one of the initial 100 necklace microphones. Once winners get their microphones, all they have to do is document their idea by sending the company a picture or a video. The two best entries will win a grand prize – a choice of DPA Microphones up to a value of 1,000 EUR.
If you’re interested in entering, you only have until September 28, to get your idea submitted. The 100 initial winners will be announced on October 1, 2014. Also, contestants are able to win multiple necklace microphones, but only one microphone will be awarded per idea.
Below is an example video of the types of ideas that DPA are looking for. Good Luck!
