Registration Open for 6th Annual Shure Recording Competition

Publish date:

NILES, IL--Open to university and college students nationwide, the registration for Shure's sixth annual "Fantastic Scholastic" recording competition will remain open until October 19, 2009. A random drawing on or about October 20, 2009, will determine the ten competing schools, each of which will receive a standardized "mic locker" from Shure that must be used to complete every recording project submitted.

The names of registrants chosen as contestants in the random drawing will be posted on Shure's website on or around October 23, 2009. Dedicated mic lockers will then be sent out and must be returned no later than February 1, 2010. Announcement of the Grand Prize, Runner-Up, and Honorable Mention Prize winners will take place on or around April 9, 2010.

Competing teams from each school are required to record and mix an original piece of music. Their submission will be judged by a panel of industry professionals who will evaluate the recordings based upon their overall fidelity, clarity, sonic balance, and creativity in selection and placement of the microphones. Previous judges have included Dave Hewitt, Sylvia Massy, Ron Nevison, Elliott Scheiner, and Al Schmitt.

"This contest is something we really look forward to each year," said Shure market development specialist Dave Mendez, the contest coordinator. "In the five years since we started doing it, it’s grown into something bigger than we ever imagined it would. We’re grateful for the enthusiasm of the schools, students and faculty who participate in the contest and for the interest of the judges…many of whom repeat year after year…to review the submissions. It’s a great way for us to support the craft of recording music and we look forward to another successful competition this year."
