The Gearwire.com Most Valuable Poster Contest

The $5000 Prize Giveaway for Gearheads Who Give Back. Sponsored by SONiVOX and IK Multimedia

Do you get helpful advice from this forum? Would you like to see a deserving forum user recognized and rewarded? What about YOUR contributions to this forum? Gearwire thinks you deserve something more than a pat on the back.

The British Pipesmokers' Council gave out 39 Pipe Smoker of the Year awards before it finally went bust three years ago. If 39 blokes from Britain can get fancy awards just for sitting around smoking pipes all day, you, a regular forum poster, deserve a shot at recognition for providing gear-related content for the benefit of your fellow gearheads. Gearwire.com and our sponsors SONiVOX and IK Multimedia want to give out props where props are due, and $5,000 worth of gear besides.

Well, maybe you personally don't deserve it. Maybe most of your posts were wasted speculating on Paris Hilton’s prison nicknames, or worse, trolling those poor, miserable souls in the political forum.

But all the more reason for you to do a good deed and nominate the best forum contributors in one of 11 categories. If you don't nominate yourself, You still have a shot at some serious prize winning. Just by nominating someone, you'll be entered to win free gear in the Gearwire.com Most Valuable Poster Contest.

One more time, just so we're clear: yes, you can nominate yourself. Go ahead. Just CLICK HERE

$5,000 total in gear will be awarded, sponsored in part by SONiVOXmi.com and IKMultimedia.com, - which will make for much cooler prizes than whatever those Pipe Smokers of the Year got.

Don't your MVPs deserve some recognition for all that gearhead advice they shared for free?CLICK HERE.

Nominate your candidates today and be entered to win some wicked cool gear from Gearwire.com. Having a good email address for your nominees helps us out a lot but isn't required. Please be sure to indicate what forum you are nominating your MVP for, and any other relevant info that can help us get in touch with your nominee!

P.S. The first 100 people to submit nominations will also receive a free Gearwire.com T-shirt, just for doing the right thing. Put that in your pipe and smoke it! Fill out our easy-to-use form.

We asked permission some time before posting, but received no response positive or negative. If the moderators are uncomfortable with this here, we are glad to remove it.

We're not selling anything, and our intent is not to spam. The contest is for members of all musician forums across the net. The point is to recognize the members who really contribute great information to your forum. They can possibly win free gear, and anyone who nominates someone can win free gear.

Think of it like the people's choice awards, but for gearheads.

As for our site, our main purpose is putting out videos of gear. We go to all the pertinent conferences (NAMM, etc), interview the engineers and reps, and put the videos up on our site. We also make our own gear demo vids. We are not in competition with this or any other forum.

Thanks for looking!

If the site administrators really wanted you to advertise, they would let you do so on the main page, not on the forums.

This is generally frowned upon by the site and it's members, but I'm not sure if the Admins let it be for some crazy reason.

I still recommend not posting, as this may still be spam.

If admin choose to delete this, so be it. But, this is a nice opportunity to recognize the most valuable contributors to your forum. If you think about it, the best information on the web about gear is often found in forums like this one, and the people who contribute that information aren't paid and rarely recognized. This is a way to say "thanks" to them. So far we've got about 70 or so other music forums participating with this as well, and we anticipate more.

I would invite anyone to check out our site. You will see that this is legit. Anyway, spammers don't generally hang around to answer questions.
