Congrats to Jan in the Czech Republic for his winning entry. Jan showed us where he Purples and for winning the competition, he’ll get a free copy of the Deep Purple Around the World DVD. Didn’t win? No worries! Get your copy HERE.

Here’s Jan’s entry:


The entries are in and now it’s your turn to choose the winner! Fans can look through all the submitted photos and rate which one according to how “purple” they think they are. The photo with the highest rating will win the grand prize which is a copy of the new Around The World LIVE DVD. And if you don’t have the new Around The World LIVE DVD, you can pick up a copy by clicking HERE!

Deep Purple has fans all over the globe and they love nothing more than traveling around the world meeting fans and doing what they do best- rocking harder than anyone else on the planet. They are currently on their tour that will take them all over Europe and even a quick trip over to the Middle East. But after DP leaves a country, the loyal fans stick around, proud to be a Deep Purple fan.

So- we want to know where you Purple. Show us a picture of yourself in your hometown or at a local landmark representing Deep Purple. Wear a DP T-shirt, hold up a Deep Purple sign, mow the DP logo into your corn fields…. whatever you want! We’ll be putting up all the photos (unless they are inappropriate, of course) on and you, the fan community, will get to vote for your favorite photo. The person who submits the winning photo will win a free copy of the Around the World DVD where you can see Deep Purple perform in countries as diverse as the fans.

When sending in your photo be sure to tell us your name and where the picture was taken. Fans will be judging the photos on creativity, how enthusiastic you are about Deep Purple, and how exotic your location is, so keep that in mind when taking your photos.

Submit your entries to before July 18th for them to be included in the voting.
