On October 6, 1982, Madonna released her very first single, "Everybody," which didn't do much on the regular Billboard chart, but became a huge dance club hit. On Saturday, Madonna will mark the 30th anniversary of this career milestone, and she's inviting "everybody" to join her in celebrating with a cool contest.
Fans are invited to pick their favorite Madonna album or single, and create their own cover art for it. You can use the original artwork as a jumping-of point, or add whatever images you prefer. When you're done, email your work of art to email@example.com, with "MY MADONNA SLEEVE FACE" as your e-mail's subject line. Your email must be received before 11:59 p.m. ET on October 19, and must include your name, full mailing address and phone number.
What's in it for you? A bunch of cool prizes. Madonna will pick her favorite 10 photos, and the grand prizes available include a huge package with tickets to an upcoming show, a football helmet signed by the star right after her Super Bowl performance, a pair of her Truth or Dare brand shoes, a DVD set of her Addicted to Sweat exercise series, and a month's supply of Vitacoco.
Other packages include albums, T-shirts, DVDs, tour books and other swag, so it's definitely worth letting your creativity flow. In other words, as Madonna sang 30 years ago Saturday, "get up and do your thing."
