The prizes include numerous RODE microphones and accessories; the aforementioned RODECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio; headphones from Urbanears; sound effects from Blastwave FX; software subscriptions from Adobe; tuition from School Of Podcasting; SSDs from Angelbird, acoustic treatment from Primacoustic, and more.
