Prize bonanza for Rode comp winners

You’re all winners – even those who didn’t come first in any category. That’s the message from Rode whose mega-prize filmmaking competition is now officially over.

Not only are the category winners taking away a share of the $80,000 USD prize fund but every one of the 1,120 entrants is going to be sent a new smartLav+ microphone out of the generosity of Rode’s heart.

The company says it’s been “overwhelmed” by the number and standard of the entries and had a very hard time choosing the top picks.

Extra kudos then to the overall top man Ronnie Bingaman for his five-minute story “The Tale of Benjamin Sawyer”

Loads of other category winners were announced too and you can see the list and watch the films at

Well done to all, we think!
