In late-January, DiGiCo announced the premise of its New Hope competition, designed to bring the global live sound reinforcement community something exciting to look forward to in the New Year.
After receiving more than 10,000 entries, DiGiCo invited participants to tune into a live reveal of the results on its Facebook page at 5:00 p.m. GMT on Friday, February 12. The lucky winners included:
- Jennifer Werner of Ostrau, Germany’s LSP Light & Sound Professional GmbH, who won a DiGiGrid MGB MADI-to-SoundGrid Interface;
- Paul Janovskis, a freelance FOH engineer in Melbourne, Australia who will soon be taking delivery of the first KLANG:kontroller off the production line, serial number one;
- and American Chris Heckmann of Monika’s Sound System Rentals in Dayton, Ohio, who was awarded the contest’s grand prize—a brand new DiGiCo Quantum225 mixing console, which was simultaneously surprise-launched during the competition reveal.
“After a really challenging and uncertain year for everyone in the live production world, it was a joy for us at DiGiCo, DiGiGrid and KLANG to be able to once again share a glimmer of excitement and positivity,” says DiGiCo General Manager Austin Freshwater. “We’re chuffed to congratulate Chris, Jennifer and Paul on their big wins, and we look forward to hearing about how their new kit are serving them well as the live sound industry comes roaring back to life very soon.”
