test 4 December 2007

GERMANY: The winning entrant to Neumann’s U 87 and You competition will now have the chance to choose between two prizes – a trip to Neumann’s Berlin HQ or the special U 87 Anniversary set. The contest is accepting video messages on the topic ‘My associations with the U 87’ until December 31st, with the first-place winner to be drawn from the 87 best entries, reports PSN-e.

The U 87 and You campaign was devised to celebrated the 40th anniversary of the celebrated U 87 microphone, as reported previously by PSN-e. The latest announcement means that the winning entrant will be able to select either a trip to Neumann Berlin – including a tour of the company, sightseeing, travel costs and hotel accommodation – or a U 87 Anniversary Set, worth nearly 3,000 euros.

Entries to the competition – the closing date for which is December 31st – can range from a cell-phone video with a short statement, to excerpts from archival material, to a report on a vocal recording experience using a U 87. Submissions should be no longer than 30 seconds and should be sent via email or mobile MMS to Some of the more creative examples to date can be seen via the U 87 banner on the Neumann website (link below).

“In selecting the 87 best entries, priority will be given to the idea and the personal relationship to the U 87, rather than to the technical perfection of the video or the sophistication of the production,” said Wolfgang Fraissinet, president marketing/sales of Neumann Berlin.
