Audio-Technica's festive competition

Audio-Technica’s nationwide Christmas tune competition is being judged by award-winning producer and MPG chairman Steve Levine.

The contest is being run via the company’s YouTube, Facebook and Twitter social media channels, and has already received a diverse selection of entries from around the country.

The online competition is not restricted to any particular type of music, so bands, DJs or music producers from any genre have the opportunity of scooping either the top prize of £500 or five runners-up prizes of £100 worth of Audio-Technica equipment. As an extra incentive the first 100 entries will all receive a free pair of Audio-Technica ATH-CK51 headphones worth £30 each.

The A-T team in Leeds has entered into the spirit by recording its own, ahem, “interesting” contribution, which can be viewed on the company’s YouTube channel at

Harvey Roberts, senior marketing manager at Audio-Technica commented: “We are really excited about this competition as we think it might help bring some added impetus to music during the Christmas period. And as a company we felt we had to blaze a trail with our own song to inspire others in the industry to get creative this Christmas.”

Audio-Technica is asking people to submit their entries, which can be up to five minutes long, to YouTube and all entries will be shared by Audio-Technica on its social networking channels. Entrants can upload their video clips to YouTube and email the link to

The competition closes at midnight on 12 December, with the winning entries to be announced on 23 December.
