December 1, 2015
To celebrate the October 16th 2015 release of his new record Dopamine, Interscope Label artist BØRNS invites visual artists from around the world to create artwork inspired by the song titles, music and vibe of the record.

Whether it is an animated GIF, illustration, painting, Vine or graphic design, artists are asked to look at BØRNS' website, social channels and listen to his music. You can also check out this mood board for inspiration.

One Selected Artist will receive $1,000 and get exposure across BØRNS social channels. In addition, one Highly Commended Artist will receive $500.
about BØRNS
BØRNS may hail originally from the lower peninsula of Michigan but his dreamy blend of folk, glam and electro rock sounds like it comes straight from the cosmos. The LA transplant will be bringing his angelic voice and dynamic live show across the U.S. this fall. Do not miss a chance to catch this unique, otherworldly talent.
