In 2017, Elton John and his lyricist Bernie Taupin will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of their partnership. To mark the occasion, the pair have teamed up with YouTube to launch a contest that allows anyone to submit ideas to create the official music videos for their classic songs "Bennie and the Jets," "Rocket Man," and "Tiny Dancer."
Three filmmakers will be selected from the entries and given the tools they need to create their music videos along with $10,000 in prize money. The judges will include Elton John, PES, Kurt Hugo Schneider, and Parris Goebel.
Treatments will be accepted from January 9th through January 23rd, but each video has its own specific brief to follow. Learn more about it here.
