New York, NY (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Conversations are no longer a one-way street when it comes to artists speaking to their fans; the fans now talk back. Musician Jason Mraz truly understands the power of engaging with his audience and is launching a contest directed towards his huge social media following.
In honor of his new single “I Wont’ Give Up”, from now until February 20, Jason’s fans are encouraged to post a photo to Instagram that best represents what “I Won’t Give Up” means to them and tag it with the hastag #IWONTGIVEUP.
"I am grateful for everyone who has heard the love in ‘I Won't Give Up,’ and I'm excited to see how the song translates into so many visual interpretations,” said Jason Mraz.
Mraz will be selecting 25 winners whose photos will be printed on stunning 20” x 20” canvases proudly provided by CanvasPop. The art will be displayed at a gallery event in New York City on March 8 where winners will be invited to attend and have their Instagram prints signed by Jason in-person.
"This contest is all about reaching out to fans and developing a personal connection with Jason's inspiring song," said Spencer Callaghan, CanvasPop director of marketing. "We feel the same way about our Instagram print service, it transforms the images from pixels on a screen to a treasured piece of art.”
CanvasPop was the first company to print Instagram photos in large format, a product that has been an overwhelming success. Receiving immediate rave reviews from major media outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Mashable and TechCrunch, all were impressed with the quality of the image and simplicity of the ordering process.
“Instagram has given people the ability to create art through casual photography,” said Mike Mignano, Director, Digital Product Development, Atlantic Records. “CanvasPop takes this to a whole new level, allowing candid moments to be captured and transformed into physical pieces of art. The medium is perfect for an artist like Jason, who has found a worldwide audience through his songs, which find beauty and inspiration in these everyday moments.”
