"I Dream Of Wires" & MATRIXSYNTH - Modular Pic of the Week Contest

"'I Dream Of Wires: The Modular Synthesizer Documentary' is an upcoming film documenting the history and revival of modular synthesizers. You can read about the project, and view the in-progress trailer, over at the film's IndieGoGo fund raising page, here. From the IDOW Facebook page: 'If you haven't had time to check out our campaign - please do! It's essentially a DVD / soundtrack / T-Shirt / etc pre-order, and your early contributions really help us to move forward and solidify our plans.'

For the next 30 weeks, IDOW and MATRIXSYNTH will be co-presenting a modular synthesizer photo of the week contest. The photos will be judged by Robert Fantinatto (IDOW director), Jason Amm (IDOW producer, Ghostly International recording artist Solvent), and MATRIXSYNTH. Every Sunday night, from Oct 30 to May 20, the latest photo of the week winner will be posted here on MATRIXSYNTH. At the end of the 30 weeks, the Top5 photos will be selected.

What do the 'photo of the week' winners get?:
- Complimentary 'I Dream of Wires' DVD (upon film's release).
- Not only will your photo be posted to MATRIXSYNTH, you will also get an accompanying 50 words + 1 website link, to describe & promote your musical/photographic work.
- The photo + accompanying text/URL will also be included on the 'I Dream Of Wires' DVD release, as part of a bonus-feature photo gallery.
- Top5 winners: One of these photos will be selected as an official IDOW T-shirt design, and all 5 will be printed as a postcard set. T-Shirts and postcard sets are available as part of IDOW's IndieGoGo fund raising packages. Top5 winners will also receive a complimentary T-Shirt + postcard set.
