NEW YORK, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- U.S. recording artist Beyonce Monday announced plans for an official, fan-created "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" dance video contest.
The winner of the contest will get $2,500 in cash and have the video shown on Beyonce's upcoming world tour.
Contestants should adhere precisely to the popular "Single Ladies" dance routine performed by Beyonce and her two dancers in the original clip -- no new choreography should be added, Music World/Columbia Records said in a news release.

All submissions should be shot in either QuickTime or AVI format in either High Definition or Standard Definition in a standard frame rate on a data DVD-ROM, not a playable DVD.
Contestants should include their full name(s,) address and phone number, and address submissions to: "Single Ladies," 8033 Sunset Blvd. No. 948, Los Angeles, Calif., 90046.
Submissions must be postmarked no later than March 6.
