Tiger have launched an ‘arty’ competition to coincide with the release of their new single ‘Friends’ today (August 3)

The contest offers fans of the band the opportunity to get themselves immortalised in oils by singer Dan who, we’re told, is a dab hand with the bristles and canvas.

Hopeful ‘sitters’ should fill in the market research insert form inside each CD copy of ‘Friends’. Send it to the address on the form along with a photo of yourself and your best friend.

Dan will then select the winners and paint a portrait of the lucky pair, which will become their prize. According to an Island records spokeswoman, Dan has no criteria for selecting the winners.
