Polaroid / Giveaway

The folks at Polaroid were out at the Pitchfork Festival a couple weeks ago and shot some cool portraits, including this one of Neon Indian. Even cooler than that they also hooked me up with a camera and a pack of film to give to you guys, so I was thinking we could have a little contest! What do ya say?

If you’d like the camera and film:

1. Pretend you have a band (even if you have a real band, make up one for this contest).

2. Snap the most amazing photo of your band.

3. Email that photo here, with the subject line “BAND PHOTO”, and be sure to include the name of your band.

I’ll pick a winner Monday.
