There are already official videos for Man on Fire and Dear Believer but if those songs still inspire you then go for it! The winner can be for any song and if it's for any of the others it will become the official music video. You can make videos for one or more of the songs, just remember each video entered should have it's own unique content.

The winner and finalists will be chosen by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Genero. 


Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros formed in Los Angeles in 2007. They released their debut album, Up From Below, in July 2009 on Community Music. The album has sold over 315,000 copies in the US, and charted on iTunes for 69 straight weeks. With its unique and universal appeal, their hit single “Home” has soared to over 950,000 downloads. After intensive touring throughout 2009-2011, including hit appearances at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have proven themselves to be a touring force to be reckoned with.

In March 2011, the troupe’s lead singer Alex Ebert released his solo debut album, Alexander, on Community Music, which was written and recorded during breaks from being on tour as a part of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. The album includes ten brand new songs that Alexander wrote and played entirely himself. In April 2011, the band embarked on the “Railroad Revival Tour” with Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show where the band traveled exclusively in vintage railcars across the American Southwest for a week and played concerts at unique outdoor locations along the route. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros actively support Water Wells For Africa, Charity Water, APJ Now, Hope Campaign and Voice Project. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released their second studio album titled Here on Community Music / Vagrant Records on May 29, 2012.
