Update: Halloween II Fan Poster Contest


Judged by Rob Zombie himself, gallery is now live

Update 8/31: The entries are all in and the contest is officially closed. This week will be devoted to sifting through the entries. As soon as I get word from the Zombie camp regarding finalists – I’ll update this spot!

In my line of work, I’ve learned there are a lot of talented individuals out there who know how to use Photoshop. Why do I say that? Because I’m hit with fan-made posters for upcoming films all of the time. And, in most cases, some of them are pretty damn good. So good it prompts me to see if it’s legit or not. With that said, here’s an outlet to put your art wizardry to the test.

In anticipation of the Dimension Films release Halloween II, written and directed by Rob Zombie, ShockTillYouDrop.com is hosting a fan-made poster contest. It’s pretty simple. You create the poster, submit it to us and after the contest closes on August 28 (when the film is released), Rob Zombie himself will select his favorite. The winner will receive a full-sized poster of their winning design signed by Zombie.

Where do you begin? Well, there are images to use in our gallery, at the film’s official site and at Zombie’s MySpace page (sift through his blog). Also, be sure to use the title treatment you see below – click on it for a hi-res version. Be creative. When you’re done, e-mail Halloween2PosterContest@gmail.com with your hi-res artwork attached and your FULL NAME and ADDRESS. I’ll be compiling the entries into a public photo gallery for all of you to see (I’ll link to it on this page once it launches).
