TORONTO - Canadian electronic producer Deadmau5 is challenging fans to help him get a head.
The Niagara Falls, Ont., Grammy nominee has started an online contest to let fans design the next gigantic faux mouse head he'll don during gigs and promotional events.
Deadmau5 -- whose real name is Joel Zimmerman -- is accepting design submissions until July 12.
After that, fans will be able to vote online and a winner will be announced August 3.
The winner will receive 2 VIP passes to a Deadmau5 performance in L.A. as well as travel and two nights' accomodation for two people.
The next 10 top vote-getters will either receive VIP passes to a Deadmau5 performance or official signed merchandise.
