The Creative Contest Details:

Palmer‘s contest encourages fans to upload original art about "what it means for an artist to be unrestricted, independent and free". The contest celebrates Palmer’s public struggles with label Roadrunner and her recent release.

One winner will receive a picture hand drawn by Palmer on the back of the webcast setlist. Twelve selected fan artworks, including the winning submission, will be exhibited in September/October at a venue TBA. The deadline to submit artwork is August 31.

OK Go’s contest lets artists and designers create a new logo for a content filled USB drive the band distributes at concerts. One winner receives $100. The deadline to submit a design is August 1.

  1. I’m working on a piece about multimedia collaborations. I can find multiple examples of fan contributions where they submit art or video and win some sort of recognition or a prize of some sort. But I’m not finding a lot of discussion about situations where people collaborate and then share generated income in some fashion. Have anyone of you done this? If so, how did you structure it and how did it work out?
