Yamaha Announces Judge for Facebook Photo Competition

Dec. 23, 2011

Since September, Yamaha Commercial Audio Europe has been offering the chance to win an LS9-32 digital mixing console in its 25th Anniversary Facebook photo competition. But time is now running out, as the competition closes for entries at midnight on 1st January.

2012 marks the 25th Anniversary of Yamaha bringing the first digital mixer to the market and Yamaha Commercial Audio Europe is running the photo competition in celebration. To qualify for entry, photos must be of Yamaha digital consoles in interesting or entertaining settings in use over the past 25 years and posted to, where an entry form and complete terms and conditions are available.

The company has also revealed the celebrity judge who will choose the winning photographs in January. Radiohead bass guitarist Colin Greenwood is an accomplished photographer, whose photos are regularly posted on the band’s web site.

“Colin has successfully combined the worlds of working musician and photographer together, so he is an ideal candidate for judging the competition,” says Karl Christmas, Senior Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio (UK).

“We have received entries from right across Europe showing consoles ‘in action’ in a wide variety of situations and which capture unique moments. I’m sure Colin will have a difficult job in choosing the winners.”

As well as the winning image, whose photographer will receive a Yamaha LS9-32 digital mixing console, Colin will also choose 23 runners-up who will win a Yamaha POCKETRAK digital recorder.

A special 25th prize will be chosen from the ten most ’liked’ entries published on Yamaha Commercial Audio Europe’s Facebook page. From those ten, a select panel of audio industry experts will choose the winner of this prize, a Yamaha MCR-040 portable hi-fi system.

“We have extended the deadline by 24 hours to give people the chance to enter photos from the many New Year’s Eve events that will use Yamaha digital consoles,” says Karl. “There is still the chance to take photographs of them in uniquely festive situations. The gratuitous inclusion of baubles, tinsel and party poppers is positively encouraged!”
