Coldplay are hosting a video contest for their Viva La Vida track "Lost?" with the winner being awarded VIP treatment at the band's concert in London this December. The band encourages fans to use creativity and any medium (animation, photography, stop-motion, etc.) in the contest. "Don't use anyone else's material (i.e. Please don't splice together your favourite scenes from Spider-Man 3 and Mean Girls)," the band says in the contest guidelines, and "don't bother with Coldplay live footage or photographs as there's enough of that on YouTube already." Entrants are asked to post their videos on YouTube. Chris Martin and gang will judge the finalists before picking a winner on December 5th. And what's at stake? Backstage passes, "the best seats in the house," plus full travel and accommodations for their December concert in London. To check the rest of the details, check out the contest page.
