Amy Winehouse fans can enter a 'Back to Black' cover competition for the album's 10th anniversary

It's been 10 years since iconic album 'Back to Black' was first released, and to celebrate, the Amy Winehouse Foundation has launched a global cover contest. 

Fans of the late singer are being asked to film their own cover versions of Amy's iconic tunes and upload them to YouTube. 

Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, Amy's long-time friends, collaborators and producers, will judge the entries and pick a winner. That winner will then have their performance recorded and filmed in a studio, before their rendition premieres on Island Records' YouTube channel. 

The original instrumental backing tracks and lyric videos for 'Black to Black', 'Tears Dry' and 'Just Friends' have been made available on the official Amy Winehouse Vevo channel to help fans wanting to enter the competition. 

Funds from the campaign will all be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to help vulnerable young people facing issues like homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction, mental health conditions and unemployment. 

Entries are open until January 31, 2017. For more details and the competition entry form visit
