Martin Launches “Become a Star” 2013 Contest


Martin Professional just launched their “Become a Star” Young Lighting Designer Contest for 2013. Martin Professional is offering budding lighting designers and technicians the chance of a lifetime via a Young Lighting Designer Contest for Prolight + Sound.

The prize? A brand new Martin M2PC lighting controller!

The winner of the “Become a Star- Young Lighting Designer Contest 2013” will also be invited to spend a day with the Martin Professional family at Prolight + Sound, getting an up-close look at the latest in Martin innovation and making all-important contact with employees, lighting designers, customers and other lighting professionals.

But that’s not all! On the evening of April 11th, the winner will be Martin’s special guest at an exclusive Martin Professional VIP party at Frankfurt’s premiere live music venue, Gibson Club, Germany’s most innovative nightclub where a Martin lighting and video package takes center stage. What’s more, the winner will also have the chance to program an upcoming MARTIN Event on an M6, Martin’s new professional lighting console, under the experienced instruction of his/her own personal Martin trainer.
