Benztown, an international radio imaging, production library, programming and voice-over services company, today announced that it is sponsoring the third annual Iron Imager Contest, an international radio imaging contest where production professionals compete for cash and other prizes and the coveted 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 many of Benztown’s newest world-class voice talent, including Correy Webb, Grant George, Jessica Gee and Jules Riley. The first and only competition of its kind, the Iron Imager contest begins today and runs through April 10, 2014.
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, Dan Kelly (Creative Services Director, WPLJ & NASH-FM/New York), in a head-to-head live competition during the All Access Worldwide Radio Summit (April 2-4, 2014) in Hollywood, CA.
Dave “Chachi” Denes, Benztown President, said: “Iron Imager is a prime opportunity for the industry’s best imaging pros to showcase their unique talents and work. 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.”
Dan Kelly, Iron Imager 2013 Champion, said: “For the past year, the Iron Imager belt has been mine. Wanna take it away from me?? BRING IT ON!….Ok…they sort of told me to talk all tough, 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!”
