In celebration of its 120 years of innovation, Gibson Brands is hosting the 2014 Gibson "Win a Studio" Video Contests, with monthly drawings for which the first prize winners receive everything they need for a full home recording setup. Included among this gear are some of the company's most popular recording pieces, such as KRK Systems' ROKIT 5 Studio Monitors and 10s Powered Subwoofer; TASCAM's TM-PC1 Condenser Microphone, US-366 USB 2.0 Audio Interface and TH-MX2 Professional Headphones; and Stanton's DJC.4 Virtual DJ Digital Workstation; among others. At the end of the contest, which concludes November 30, one Grand Prize winner will be chosen to win a Gibson Double Diamond Guitar.
To enter, contestants must create an original 30-second to 15-minute video that highlights the Gibson Brands product that is the focus of each specific contest, such as March's Gibson Min-ETune and April's KRK ROKIT challenges. The featured products will be posted online on the Gibson "Win a Studio" Contest page at the start of each new month and contestants will have two months from that date to submit their video. To be considered, participants must upload their video to their personal YouTube channel with a title that mentions the product, followed by the words "Gibson Studio Giveaway." The video description must include the following tags: Gibson Win A Studio Contest, Gibson Brands, Inc. and the month of the contest to which it applies. Videos must then be submitted to the specific contest entry page located online at the link above by the end of the two month submission deadline. By entering, a contestant attests that they are the sole owner of all copyrighted materials contained in the video. Winners will be announced one month after individual contest submission deadlines. The grand prize winner will be announced on December 31.
