The Roots are giving hip-hop heads with a knack for art a chance to put their talent on display.
The band has kicked off a logo competition centered on its 2010 Jam Session. To enter, participants are asked to create a logo integrating the words “Roots” “Jam” and “Session,” then, twitter the design (or a link to the entry) to @RootsJamSession with the hashtag #RootsJam.
The winning design will serve as the official logo for this year’s Roots Jam Session, taking place Jan. 30, 2010, as part of Grammy Week. In addition, the winner will be given the chance to attend the invite-only performance, at which Snoop Dogg, Travis Barker and Corinne Bailey Rae have previously performed, backed by Questlove‘s crew.
The cut-off date for the contest is Thursday (Jan. 7), at 11:59 PM PST. The winner will be announced this month via Twitter.
