Nikon and Warner Music Group Team Up for a SXSW Residency and New Artist Contest

(AllHipHop News) Nikon, the world leader in digital imaging, and Warner Music Group have teamed up to host a star-studded three-day event at the upcoming 2012 South By SouthWest Music and Media Conference (SXSW) in Austin, Texas this March.

"The Warner Sound Captured By Nikon" event will feature live showcase performances from acts such as Santigold, B.O.B., Meek Mill, and a number of other performers signed to the music conglomerate. A full lineup for the March 13-15 showcase at La Zona Rosa will be released in the coming weeks.

In addition to the three-day SXSW residency, Nikon and WMG are also teaming up to search for the next great music superstar with their "Your 1 Shot" contest. The contest offers new artists a chance to perform live at the SXSW residency. Bands, artists, and groups are invited to submit one live performance video to the "Your 1 Shot" contest site.

One winner will be selected by a panel of industry experts and will be brought to Austin for a live performance at the La Zona Rosa on March 14. In addition to the performance, the winner will receive a brand new Nikon 1 J1 camera kit, travel fare, three nights' accommodations in Austin, and VIP access to the "Warner Sound Capture By Nikon" event.

Online voting for the contest is set to take place from February 21-27, with the winner to be announced on March 6. For more information, visit
