Lectrosonics Sponsors ‘Sound is Essential’ Contest

Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • January 6, 2021

Lectrosonics, together with a number of dealers, industry manufacturers and end users, has been spearheading a social media campaign for the last few weeks, Sound is Essential, to emphasize that no matter the medium, sound is critical. Alongside the campaign, Lectrosonics is sponsoring the Sound is Essential creativity contest, where users can upload videos to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and tag them with #lectrosonics and #soundisessential. The deadline to enter the contest is January 31, 2021.

The Sound is Essential videos should be short, creative, and focused on demonstrating the importance of sound. For the campaign, Lectrosonics, along with others including Gotham Sound, Location Sound Corp., Dale Pro Audio, Talamas Broadcast, Raycom UK, and Trew Audio; manufacturers such as Calrec, DPA, Schoeps GmbH, Halter Technical, Viviana Straps, Bubblebee Industries and K-Tek; and individual pro audio and location sound practitioners and users have been creating custom, short-form video content and tagging them with #soundisessential.

“We are very excited about the responses to Sound is Essential that we have received from industry friends, colleagues, and related companies who have been making their own creative content,” says Karl Winkler, vice president of marketing and sales for Lectrosonics. “Sound is the basis of any media – the foundation of the message and the communication between people. We want to emphasize that sound should always get equal billing, equal care, and equal attention in any production.”

To enter the Sound is Essential contest, users can upload videos to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, or TikTok by January 31, and tag them with #lectrosonics and #soundisessential. Representatives from the company will review all the videos during the first week of February, and pick the most creative entries for first, second, and third place.

The first place winner will receive a $500 gift certificate for a purchase towards Lectrosonics products or services at any authorized Lectrosonics retailer; the second place winner will receive a gift card for $250, and third place will win a $100 gift card.
