From Indie’s MySpace blog:
I’m so excited to kick off Project INDIE 2009!!!!! This year is going to be even more exciting than last year!!! We have teamed up with Q102.1 to combine our 2 VERY favorite things! LOCAL MUSIC and LOCAL DESIGNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!! As you all SHOULD know – Shadow hosts the Homegrown Show every Tuesday night at 9:45pm on Q102.1. Tune in every week to hear the best of Springfield’s local music scene! Plus, you can check out the talent live at the Homegrown Concerts held at different locations each month!
So, basically there are two parts to the competition this year.
First – the designer competition – the winner will design a line of anything they want, sell it at INDIE, and WE PAY for it!!!
Anyone can enter the competition by emailing pictures of ANY TYPE of original artwork to INDIE!! (email@example.com) You should include a detailed description of the type of products you would want to make to sell at INDIE if you are the winner! Then, we will select 5 finalists to compete in a T-shirt challenge that will be held in the store during the October Art Walk. (So you HAVE to be available on October 2nd beginning at 5:00pm). The challenge this year will kick ass!!!!! We will be pairing up each designer with a local musician or band and they will create a t-shirt to promote the band! The original design will be turning into a graphic design that can be printed on lots of tshirts and sold at INDIE! So, even if you don’t win your shirt will be all over Springfield!!!! The five t-shirts will be voted on by our customers and the winner will be announced on our 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY at the beginning of November!
Second – the musician/band competition – the winner will get to headline a Q102.1 Homegrown Concert!!!!!!
Shadow at Q102.1 will be handling the music side of our competition since she is the expert!!!! Local musicians and bands should email their MP3s to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter the competition. Shadow will select 5 musicians/bands to participate in our t-shirt challenge. The 5 finalists will give our designers direction and inspiration for a t-shirt design that best represents their music! Then, the t-shirts will be sold at INDIE so everyone in Springfield will see them all over town!!!!! Then, the winning musician/band will play at a Q102.1 Homegrown Concert!
So – tell all your friends – SUBMIT NOW! Send us photos of your crayola drawings, graffiti tags, clothing samples, WHATEVER you want!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR send Shadow your music!!!!!!!!!!!
DEADLINE IS 9/19/09!!!!!!!
