GIK Acoustics has announced the winners of its Summer Giveaway 2020 Photo Contest, which invited customers to highlight the use of the company’s acoustical products in their spaces.
More than 150 entries were submitted from clients around the world, showcasing rooms that include recording studios, home listening rooms and theaters, schools, offices, mix facilities, live rooms, rehearsal spaces, and gymnasiums.
GIK Acoustics narrowed down entries to the top 51 finalists and opened the contest to peer voting that concluded on October 16, 2020. The Grand Prize winner is R.J. DeMarco, Lake View, NY, who will receive $500 cash plus a $500 GIK Acoustics shopping spree. DeMarco’s photo showed his live rehearsal room,
“My space has become my safe haven, a place where I go to create without limitations,” he says. “The downstairs area is where I track anything that needs to sound or feel ‘alive.’ The upstairs area is where I mix and make beautiful memories with great musicians.”
Runner-Up Prizes winners (two from the U.S. and two from Europe) will each receive a set of Acoustic Art Panels, Impression Pro Series or Alpha Pro Series panels of their choosing. The list:
- David Francisco, Fullterton, CA
- Jake Moreno, San Antonio, TX
- Filipe Oliveira, Portugal
- Danny Meegan, Ireland
“We’re very pleased with the number and quality of photos received for the contest, which made selecting finalists quite difficult,” says GIK Acoustics President Glenn Kuras. “The photo contest was a great way for us to see our products in action and see how creative our clients are.”
