Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE: CCO):
WHO: Clear Channel Spectacolor, the U.S. market leader in spectacular sign displays and a division of the world's largest outdoor advertising company, Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE: CCO), and Tivoli Audio, an international maker of high-end designer audio products.
WHAT: With the help of Clear Channel Spectacolor, Tivoli Audio celebrates its 10th anniversary with a 31-by-98 foot building wrap showcasing its latest Model 10, a high fidelity digital AM/FM clock audio system. In celebration of its anniversary, Tivoli Audio sponsored an international graphic billboard design competition open to designers, illustrators, photographers and students around the world based on the new Model 10 radio. The winning design came from Huan Miao Khoo, a 24 year-old Malaysian student completing his Master of Architecture degree at the University of Sydney in Australia. Khoo's design features the Model 10 opening like a gift box, revealing meshed wires and a violinist inside, capturing the high-quality of Tivoli Audio products as if real musicians were performing "live" inside of the radio.

Driven by creativity, the Company also provides an opportunity for billboards to stand like canvases, showcasing its versatility through displays of artwork and designs. For this initiative, Spectacolor worked with Tivoli Audio to present the winning design of a competition which received nearly 3,000 entries from 95 countries worldwide.
