Winner Announced On
July 5, 2012
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, aka Orlando Higginbottom, is inviting designers to design a head piece to be worn by him on stage at Bestival Festival on the Isle of Wight in September 2012. Over 55,000 people will attend the festival which will be televised on Channel 4 ensuring that the head piece is seen by thousands.

The winning designer will work collaboratively with T.E.E.D's creative team to have their head piece produced and ready to be worn by Orlando.

T.E.E.D. are looking for original and diverse head pieces worthy of centre stage at one of the UK's biggest festivals.
"I'm always thinking about things I could wear on stage and I'm really excited to open this up to anyone who wants to get involved. I can't wait to see people's ideas for my head! Please remember I need to perform in whatever you design - I've got to be able to move around and I can't have my ears covered. It has to be practical and fantastic in equal measure. Good luck!" Orlando, aka Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
