Panic! At The Disco have launched a competition for fans to direct another music video for track Victorious.

The band have partnered with Music Choice and the All American High School Film Festival to invite budding creatives to submit their own video ideas.

Applicants must download the track Victorious from iTunes, and direct a music video with their own opener. More detailed instructions can be found on the High School Film Festival website.

Frontman Brendon Urie says: “As my fans know, I love to interact with them, whether it be online or at shows. I can’t wait to see the submissions we get from around the world to bring the music video for Victorious to life.”

The winner will have their music video aired across Music Choice’s entire platform, direct an episode of Behind The Lines for Music Choice and be announced at the 2016 Teen Indie Awards on October 9 at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn, New York.

The best music videos will also be screened at the AMC Empire 25 Theater in New York City’s Times Square from October 7-9.

The competition runs until July 11.

Meanwhile, Panic! At The Disco are currently in Russia. They’ll head to North America later this month.
