As part of a competition that began on September 1, DPA is giving 100 lucky people the chance to win its d:screet necklace microphones, which were launched earlier this year.
The competition, running on DPA's Facebook page and website, asks contestants to come up with ingenious ideas for how and where to use the d:screet necklace mic.
The plug-and-play microphone is suited to situations where mounting and consistent audio output are the primary requirements. By housing a d:screet 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Capsule in a soft rubber necklace, DPA has created a microphone that anyone can use - the only fitting skill required is the ability to do up a necklace catch.
Five microphones will be awarded to the five most liked submissions on Facebook, while the remaining 95 will be given to the people who, in DPA's opinion, come up with the best, most creative and most original ideas.
The competition also has a second phase, which will be open to those who win one of the initial 100 necklace microphones. Once winners get their microphones, all they have to do is document their idea by sending the company a picture or a video. The two best entries will win a grand prize – a choice of DPA Microphones up to a value of 1,000 EUR (list price).

Entry to this competition is via the DPA website or DPA's Facebook page. All ideas need to be submitted by September 28, 2014, and the 100 initial winners will be announced on October 1, 2014. Contestants can win multiple necklace microphones, but only one microphone will be awarded per idea.
Entry to phase two of the competition will open after October 1, with the two ultimate winners announced on November 10, 2014. The first grand prize will go to the most liked picture or video on Facebook, while the second will go to the application idea that DPA perceives to be the best and most well documented.
