To celebrate Queen's 40th Anniversary, the band are inviting filmmakers to create a video for their 1977 song Sheer Heart Attack.

Organised via Talenthouse, the competition is aimed at existing filmmakers and 'videographers', with participants invited to submit showreels showcasing their talent for the chance to be selected as a finalist, who will then be provided with the video of performance of Sheer Heart Attack in the 'Queen on Fire Live at the Bowl' film, to cut together, use as stop animation and work with their own original footage if desired. Participants will be encouraged to use their own work to create a wholly original piece of work.

Sheer Heart Attack, although originally intended for the early 70s album of the same name, was actually included on the 1977 album News Of The World. The winning submission will be used as a music video and featured across Queen's social media channels. This will be the first original Queen video since 'Under Pressure' in 1999.

Submission deadline information, prizes and all other details about the Sheer Heart Attack video competition is here.
