With World Theatre Day 2020 approaching on March 27, Point Source Audio is marking the occasion by offering one non-profit youth arts organization the chance to win $5,000 worth of microphones from the company’s EMBRACE series.
Having previously donated Point Source Audio products as part of its Decade of Innovation competition back in 2018, this year the manufacturer is asking its social media followers on Facebook to nominate non-profit organizations that they think are deserving of the prize. The competition is open to any non-profit community-led organization or group that is supporting young people in the arts.
“It’s so important to recognize the work of individuals and organizations who are making a difference for young people through performance,” explains Yvonne Ho, vice president of sales & marketing at Point Source Audio. “Running this competition is our way of raising awareness of what these fantastic companies are doing to nurture and instill confidence in young talent across the globe.”
Entries can be submitted at the Point Source Audio’s Facebook page, with entrants asked to tag or name their nominations in the comments section of the post. As noted, the competition ends on March 27, 2020. The prize drawing is open to any 501(c) non-profit performing arts charity or group, located anywhere in the world, for those aged 6 to 18. The winner will be selected at random within five working days of the competition end date, and then will be contacted within five working days of being selected — with a further five working days to accept the prize before it’s forfeited and given to another entry.
“Fundamentally, we want to make great sound equipment accessible to youth theatres and support arts organizations in making exciting work across the globe,” says James Lamb, president of Point Source Audio. “There is no better way of marking World Theatre Day than celebrating the work of youth theatre organizations around the world. Hopefully, we will be able to help some of the next generation of theatre talent to reach their true potential.”
