Because we’re giving so much free shit away… Not.
We’re no HoboGestapo-like creatures who can give stuff away themselves! Holy shit no. Although, enter that comp.
First of all, Canon have their Photo5 comp up and running again. Basically you get a box, then you take creative photos of it (black and white @ ISO 3200 always makes things ‘creative’), then you win $5000 to spend on Canon stuff. Pretty good deal. If nothing else, they send you a box full of stuff. Everyone’s a winner!
Another comp worth entering is UncharTED. If you’re a band and you’re good (it helps), then enter this. Why? Because you get to play at the Big Day Out. Now, you’re probably thinking that this is useless and most bands from Australia will play a BDO at some stage, but the fact is, you’re wrong. Neil Young is going to be there, and you will have VIP Artist passes or something, so you can keep on rocking in the free world away from the bogans. You can also win an Epiphone guitar, which is sweet, although if you’re like me, you’d sell it to pay for next week’s rent. Another perk is that Toohey’s Extra Dry are the main sponsor of the comp, so you’d more than likely get hooked up with beer, and ED is better than a lot of other shit out there. Maybe they might even give you some of that 7% Platinum stuff.
Our competition is that the first person to leave a comment naming the new members of Wolfmother gets a free ticket to my new band‘s first gig. Sweet deal. Hopefully we play Transit Bar first.
