March 4, 2014 at 3:54 AM (PT)
BENZTOWN's third annual IRON IMAGER CONTEST begins today and runs through APRIL 10th. The international radio imaging contest pits production professionals competing for cash and other prizes and the title of World’s Best Imager.
Challengers will demonstrate their imaging skills using audio ingredients from BENZTOWN’s production libraries, paired with contestants’ original scripts. BENZTOWN has also committed additional resources to enhance challengers’ submissions, offering for free the voice talents of CORREY WEBB, GRANT GEORGE, JESSICA GEE and JULES RILEY.
BENZTOWN’s IRON IMAGER CONTEST is open to all radio imaging, production and programming professionals (18 or older) and will be judged by top producers and programmers from the U.S. and around the world. The winner of Round 1 will face last year’s Iron Imager, WPLJ & NASH-FM/New York Creative Services Dir. DAN KELLY, in a head-to-head live competition during the ALL ACCESS WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT in HOLLYWOOD, CA.
“IRON IMAGER is a prime opportunity for the industry’s best imaging pros to showcase their unique talents and work," BENZTOWN Pres. DAVE “CHACHI” DENES said: Each contestant has access to the same world-class workparts, which levels the playing field by offering the best components available to every imaging professional, regardless of market size or budgetary limitations. Each year, the competition has been stiffer and the stakes higher, so this year will be incredibly exciting and fun. All imaging experts who’ve got what it takes should enter the Iron Imager ring and put their skills to the test. The world will be watching this adrenaline-charged live match-up to see who will take home the coveted title of World’s Best Imager.”
“For the past year, the IRON IMAGER belt has been mine," IRON IMAGER 2013 Champion DAN KELLY said. "But really I have no idea what we’ll have to make this year … A jazz promo? Russian News/Talk? Sports en Espanol? The possibilities are endless … But go for it. We’ll go head to head in LA in just a few weeks. It’ll be like “Chopped!” for imaging!”
