Creators Selected On
August 13, 2015
the brief
Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo (SBCR), frontman and mastermind of "The Bloody Beetroots" Project, is inviting designers from around the world to create his brand new SBCR mask. Preparing to release the new project, SBCR & Adversaries Vol. 2, Sir Bob wants something creative and completely original to wear on stage when performing solo.

Designers can submit a ready-made mask or a sketch. Both should include a description about why they think this mask would appeal to Sir Bob. Should the selected design be a sketch, DIM MAK will be responsible for producing the final piece.

The Selected Artist will receive $1,500 and exposure across the social channels of The Bloody Beetroots/SBCR and DIM MAK Records. SBCR may also wear the selected mask on stage. One Popular Choice will receive $500. Please refer to the specifications below for inspiration.
