SENNHEISER BRING YOU “THE WRITE STUFF”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

13 th February 2012 (Huntingdon, UK) – Cadred.org are excited to be partnering with Sennheiser to create “The Write Stuff”, a search across Europe to find journalistic talent in the field of competitive gaming.

The application process is open effective immediately, and closes on 1 April 2012 after which a shortlist of ten candidates will be selected to write about what Sennheiser’s latest ground-breaking product for gamers, the PC 320 headset, brings to online competitive gaming. These articles will be presented to the gaming community on Cadred.org for a public vote, which will have a strong impact on the decision made by the judging panel.

The winner will receive a three-month paid internship and a fortnightly column on Cadred. This unique opportunity will enable the winner to shadow the leading esports journalists including Richard Lewis and Michael McGhee. The internship will start on 1 May by covering the i45 LAN gaming event and will go on to report on the most prestigious online gaming tournaments.

“For me it is vitally important to nurture the next generation of writing talent within the world of esports,” said Richard Lewis, Editor in Chief for Cadred.org. “The journalists are the front line in promoting competitive gaming as a whole; without talented and dedicated journalists the world of esports would be an awful lot bleaker, and there’s plenty of untapped potential out there.”

 

“The competitive gaming scene has gone from strength to strength over the past decade, and is an incredibly exciting place to be right now,” said Charlotte Gaskin, Sennheiser Channel Marketing Manager. “We strive to give gamers the best audio products on the market, and in partnering with Cadred we are able to continue our support for the gaming community; we can’t wait to see what talent we find.”

For some years now Sennheiser have been a leader in high-quality gaming peripherals, and the recent release of the PC 320 G4ME headset refreshes this range by bringing down the cost of top-of-the-range audio. The PC 320 has been extremely well received already, and recently picked up a prestigious “Hardware Heaven Recommended” award.
