Robert Plant has invited fans to make their own videos for his track "Rainbow" - and he's offering a $3000 prize for the best result.

His favourite entry will also become the official promo for the song from upcoming album "Lullaby And... The Ceaseless Roar", due on September 5 via Nonesuch.

Organisers Genero say: "The creative direction is being left completely open –so listen to the song, be inspired, and create something spectacular!"

"This is an amazing opportunity for any filmmaker to make a music video for a true legend. The official selection and finalist group will be chosen by Robert and Genero."

Rainbow can be heard on the contest page, and entries will be accepted until midnight on September 8.

Plant recently called his album a "celebratory record – powerful, gritty, African, trance meets Zep." He'll tour the UK with his Sensational Space Shifters in November:
