MELVILLE, N.Y. (MuseWire) – Korg is celebrating the 10th birthday of its best-selling microKORG analog modeling synth this year. In honor of the occasion, Korg is inviting consumers to participate in a very special contest by sharing what the microKORG or microKORG XL means to them and how the product helps bring out their best performances.
Starting April 1, musicians can enter Korg’s microMADNESS Video Contest simply by creating and posting an original YouTube video that explains, demonstrates, or illustrates how their microKORG or microKORG XL motivates them to perform at their best and/or what the product means to them.
A panel of international Korg judges will score each entry on its fun factor, entertainment value, creativity, originality and maybe – but not necessarily – musical substance. KORG will select the top four winners and a special Korg artist will announce the winners on October 1st, 2012.
The top four winners will each receive the very first (serial no. 1) of a different, yet-to-be-released Korg product, and have their winning video appear on Korg’s website and Social Network pages. Additional prize details will be announced in early September 2012.
Entries will be accepted from 9 a.m. ET April 1, 2012 though 11:59 p.m. ET September 18, 2012. Contest entry details and requirements are at: www.korg.co.jp/micromadness/English .
