Pixies have launched a competition for fans to design the artwork for their new album.

A $500 (£300) cash prize is also being offered.

To enter, the design must be Pixies-inspired, measuring 11” X 17” (279mm x 432mm) that uses Pixies logos and the ‘Indie Cindy’ album title. “Everything else can be a product of the artist’s creativity and ingenuity,” a statement reads.
Entries will be judged by the band and Vaughan Oliver, who has designed all Pixies artwork over the band’s career
