Competition//Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs on the hunt for new headgear.

TEED at Bestival 2011 (c) Bestival

It feels only right that I have Garden on in the background as I begin this post. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, aka electronic producer Orlando Higginbottom, is releasing his debut album Trouble on June 11th. I know what you're thinking, I'm thinking it too. And, if you haven't been eagerly anticipating its arrival then you clearly don't know enough about the guy.

TEED played Bestival last year and will be back with a difference for his sophomore performance at the 4 day festival this September. TEED is reaching out to undiscovered creative talent to design him the most outlandish head-piece Bestival has ever seen. If you've been to Bestival, you'll realise thats not the easiest of achievements.

Designers, headdress-makers, milliners and fashion enthusiasts alike, you should jump on this bandwagon and sieze the opportunity to get your work seen by over the 55,000 people in attendance at the festival and the thousands of people watching the televised performance on Channel 4. 

Submissions must be original and submitted in JPEG or PNG format, and must not have been commercially used either before or during this challenge. Creative participants must retain the original design pattern should they be chosen as a winner, as the designer will collaboratively work on the final physical head piece with TEED’s creative team, which will then be worn by Orlando. 

Your design will be get coverage on TEED's website, you and a guest will receive travel to the festival and festival camping tickets, and you'll even get to meet the guy. 

What a bummer I can't draw...Good luck!
