The Contest has Ended.
Thanks For Participating!

German automaker, Volkswagen, recently held a contest to let them have a chance at winning tickets to the Kraftwerk retrospective at the MOMA in April. Participants had to submit a homemade GIF to be considered.

Kraftwerk, a band from Dusseldorf, who, in the 70s popularized synth music will put on a spectacular performance across 8 evenings at New York's MOMA in April, accompanying a month-long retrospective of the band and its influence. Within an hour of going on sale, the tickets were completely sold out. Fans say this should not be a surprise, since the band is still wildly popular and the venue is perfect.

Software and Technology

Would-be digital music artists can find a plethora of music creation software options on the web. YouTube is a great resource for free tutorials on how to use software like this.

If you're looking to run an online application/ticket system yourself, FluidReview is a terrific management platform for online contests, grants and even scholarships.
