THE RESULTS ARE IN
Announcing the Winners in Our #GIKunplugged Photo Contest
We are pleased to announce the winners of our 2018 #GIKunplugged photo contest! The contest invited customers to highlight how the best gear (GIK Acoustics treatments) is unplugged.
We received over 110 entries from clients around the world showcasing GIK Acoustics products in their space. Every type of room from recording studios, to home listening rooms and home theaters, to schools, offices, mixing facilities, live rooms, rehearsal spaces, and gyms were represented. The collection of photos will help inspire others to see how proper room treatments improve not only the sound in a room; but enhance the room visually as well.
GIK Acoustics narrowed down entries to the top 35 finalists and opened the contest to peer voting which concluded April 30. We are delighted to announce the following winners:
The Grand Prize Winner is Ed Driscoll from Glen Rose, TX, who will receive $500 cash + a $500 GIK Acoustics shopping spree.
Ed submitted a photo taken of his “DAW-based 320 square foot control room project studio with vocal isolation booth. Rooms designed by Wes Laschot; acoustic treatment and product advice from GIK. The rear of the control room consists of six curved GIK Evolution PolyFusor Diffusor/Absorber panels, and in each corner of the room are a pair of stacked GIK Soffit Bass Traps. A pair of GIK Alpha Panel Diffusor/Absorber panel are on one wall of the control room.”
GIK Acoustics also awarded four (4) Runner-Up Prizes (two runners-up from GIK Acoustics-U.S.A. and two runners-up from GIK Acoustics-Europe). These winners will each receive a set of 4″ Impression Series or 4A Alpha Series panels of their choosing to further enhance their space.

“We are very pleased with the number and quality of photos received for the contest, which made selecting finalists quite difficult,” said Glenn Kuras, GIK Acoustics President. “The photo contest was a great way for us to see our products in action and see how creative our clients are.”
Thanks to everyone who submitted entries to our #GIKunplugged Photo Contest! We rely on our clients and community to help remind everyone that Your Best Gear is Unplugged.
