Courtesy of Omaze and Duran DuranDuran Duran has partnered with the Omaze fundraising website to launch a contest offering a virtual photography session and video chat with keyboardist Nick Rhodes, as well as two VIP tickets to a concert by the U.K. new-wave legends once they’re back on tour.

For the photo session, Rhodes will snap your pic during your chat with him and edit it “in his signature style.”

As for the VIP concert experience, it will include airfare and hotel accommodations for the winner and a guest to attend the show.

The contest will raise money for Heal the Healers Now, an initiative launched by the David Lynch Foundation that offers to teach stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation to medical providers caring for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

David Lynch‘s absolute commitment as an artist has also been reflected in his equal engagement with meditation,” Rhodes notes. “Through his foundation he has previously helped many people and I think it is meaningful at this moment that The David Lynch Foundation are offering the opportunity for all medical workers to learn TM for free. We are thrilled to be involved in this initiative through the Omaze campaign.”

In order to enter the contest, visit Omaze.com/DuranDuran. Entries will be accepted until June 2 at 11:59 p.m. PT, and one grand-prize winner will be chosen randomly on or around June 17.
