Selecting the winners

We will announce two winners. The first winner will be the submitter of the most listened and recommended piece of organ music. To score the winning entry we will multiply the number of listens and the number of recommendations for each submitted entry. (For example, 100 listens and 10 recommendations will result in 100 X 10 = 1000 points). The piece with the most points will be the winner. In case of two or more entries have equal points, all entries will be announced as winners. In addition to this point system, an additional winner will be drawn randomly from all of the competition entrants.

Prizes

The submitter of the most listened and recommended submission on Contrebombarde will be awarded with a licence of all current Inspired Acoustics Hauptwerk products.

The randomly drawn winner will be awarded with one free perpetual license of any of our virtual organs chosen by the winner.

Competition deadline and announcing the winners

Competition entries can be submitted until 31 July 2020 and the winners will be announced the next week through the Inspired Acoustics Newsletter- so make sure that you subscribe.
