All you have to do to enter is tweet a direct link to your entry on Soundcloud exactly like this:

The video will be ready by the end of the year!

The judges and video makers:

Jon Mortimer is a portrait, fashion and music photographer who is a regular contributor to Vanity Fair, The Observer, The Independent and Der Spiegel. Jon has shot album covers and press for All Saints, The Gossip, Danny Howells Lauren Laverne and Billy Childish amongst others. Jon also directs films and commercials and in what he sees as the next natural step he is embarking on directing music videos. With an aesthetic inspired by the creative complexity and technical simplicity of Spike Jonzes early work, Jon plans to translate his cinematic style into the world of music. Think short films that bring visual life to the music they showcase.

Music is very important to our films and the thought of marrying the visuals of a short film to the story of the track gets us creatively excited. Is it a short film? Is it a music video? Who cares, it will be innovative and engaging whatever it is.’ 


James Baxter has spent the majority of his career as a magazine editor and journalist contributing to titles such as Esquire, The Guardian and Sabotage Times. He set up his own London-based media consultancy in 2010. After undertaking a screenwriting course at City University he made his first foray into films as Executive Producer on the UK short ‘Out of Order.’ This has subsequently been short-listed at numerous film festivals and screened at BAFTA. In 2012 he established Mean Time Films with director Jon Mortimer.   Mean Time Films first short film is DINO. They are currently developing 3 more shorts and their first feature.

‘We’re looking for music that stands out in its genre and which shows the artist’s musical creativity and talent.’
