Converse launches contest inspired by 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming'
M83 are about to join the distinguished list of musicians honored with a sneaker that's always had a close tie to rock'n'roll, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star. The band is partnering with the shoe giant for a contest tied to last year's excellent Hurry Up, We're Dreaming: Fans are being invited to submit original drawings, paintings, and photos inspired by the album or any specific track. Pair your creation with a few sentences and submit it as a .jpg file 2MB or smaller to M83Contest@Converse.com (you can also submit via Instagram using the hashtag #M83Converse). M83 will pick the three winners, who will get the above customized M83 All Star and see their designs appear on the band's posters. One hundred of each victory poster will be up for sale at Anthony Gonzalez and Co.'s show at New York's SummerStage on August 8, which means this contest is on, like, now (entries are accepted today through July 31).
Full details are available on Converse's website, where you can also pick up a pair of the sneakers for yourself for cash money instead of creative energy.
