Capture the spirit of Halloween

Creators Selected On
October 6, 2016
It's almost that time of year...shadows are lurking, spells are brewing, and creatures are prowling about for the ruin of souls...

Well, maybe not quite, but we are ready to dive into the Halloween spirit!

To celebrate all the ghastly delight that is ghouls and ghosts, costumes and trick-or-treating, myths and legends, we are inviting your best art inspired by All Hallows’ Eve and Dia de los Muertos.

Whether they are bone-chilling or “aww” inducing, submissions may be a variety of mediums including graphic design, illustration, GIFs and animation.

We’re looking for great quality work that would perform well on social media channels, namely Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.

A number of stand out pieces will be selected and shared across the Talenthouse social media channels reaching over 2 million people worldwide. There is also a unique opportunity for your work to be licensed directly by brands and publishers in need of original images surrounding Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. All pieces submitted may also be presented to brand and media partners for further opportunities.
  • Do create artwork that is well-suited for social media sharing (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
  • Do think about the brief as a celebration of international holidays, including Halloween and Dia de los Muertos
  • You may submit up to 10 works. Feel free to submit existing artwork or something you have created specifically for this brief.
  • Do look at this mood board for inspiration.
  • Do not use any copyrighted material.
  • Do not depict other people unless you have a release form from each person depicted.
  • Do not submit photography.
