There's an iPod shuffle up for grabs in a new online imaging competition being hosted by artist Mike Davidson.
Davidson is looking for images depicting great iPods in history.
He asks artists to place an iPod shuffle within a "notable historical context". The example image here is by "Raj" and is hosted on Davidson's Web site.
iPod DJs make The Simpsons
Davidson's competition surfaces scant days after iPodLounge published a still from the 350th episode of The Simpsons, guaranteed to delight Playlist Club DJs on both sides of the Atlantic. In this episode, Bart and Lisa are seen dancing at their Prom to DJ's from "The Larry Davis iPod experience".
The product's impact on popular culture grows ever-more clear. Davidson's iPod shuffle-winning competition asks users to: "Modify famous photos, upload audio narratives, shoot video, or even design a mini-site," he says, adding, "you are free to submit anything you like, as long as it’s yours and it was created specifically for this contest." Images must be exactly 418 pixels by 418 pixels.
Good enough to eat
His competition last month asked for interpretations of the iPod shuffle as food. The winning entry featured a shuffle made entirely of goats butter, with the first runner-up depicting a music player made of banana, spaghetti and apple.
