THE BRIEF
The world renowned rock band ZZ Top are inviting photographers from the U.S. to submit their finest photography inspired by any song in the ZZ Top catalog for the chance to be selected as one of 10 winners to each photograph ZZ Top on a selected date of their upcoming 2014 Summer Tour in a city nearest to the winner's location. Additionally, one overall photographer from the 10 winners will be selected to receive $2,500.
ABOUT ZZ TOP

ZZ Top began as a rough-and-ready blues-rock power trio from Texas that became a huge mid-1970s concert attraction. 

Their real commercial peak didn't come, however, until the 1980s, when the "Little Ol' Band from Texas" became MTV superstars and sold multiple millions of albums.

After staying together for more than 40 years and being inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, ZZ TOP’s music remains instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American in derivation. The band’s support for the blues is unwavering both as interpreters of the music and preservers of its legacy.
