Bechstein launches online photo competition

11 November 2013

Berlin-based piano manufacturer Bechstein is offering fans the opportunity to win a new upright or a trip to its workshop in Saxony.

The giveaway is part of the makers’ 160th anniversary celebrations. To be in with a chance of winning, entrants are required to post their favourite piano photographs to the Bechstein Facebook page. The winner will be selected from a shortlist of the ten most popular images.

There are two prize options: either a new W.Hoffmann V 112 upright piano – made by C Bechstein Europe – or a trip to the C. Bechstein headquarters in Berlin and the manufactory in Saxony including concert tickets, a factory tour, hotel accommodation and travel expenses.

The competition closes on 24 January.

Bechstein released its 160th anniversary model earlier this year; a ‘golden grand’ piano that took a team of 90 workers more than 2,500 hours to create. It is finished with 24-karat gold leaf and is a replica of a piano Carl Bechstein created for Queen Victoria in the late 19th century.
