April 03. 2012 | By Collin Welbon

The Governors Ball Music Festival is teaming up with Talenthouse to create their first-ever design contest, which allows artists to submit their designs for a chance to have their work of art sold as official merchandise at the festival. The winner of the contest will be awarded 2 two-day VIP passes and online exposure across all The Governors Ball’s social media channels! For anyone who is not aware, The Governors Ball Music Festival is a two-day music festival held on Randall’s Island in New York on June 23rd and 24th, and this year’s line-up is definitely inspirational.

All designs must be submitted by April 22nd. The voting for best designs takes place from April 23rd to April 30th with the winners to be announced on May 14th. To get started, click here. Here is a list of the prizes to be awarded:
