According to the band’s website, “the brief is completely open for entrants to take inspiration from the world around them to devise and execute a masterpiece.”

Sigur Rós earlier announced the launch of a ‘mystery film experiment,’ inviting a number of directors to create a music video for a track on the new album. The band provided each director with the same small budget. The results so far can be viewed here.

The winning fan video will also receive a place alongside the other creative artists and directors in the mystery film experiment.

Submissions are due by September 10.
