Create GIF stickers for Aquaman

Creators Selected On
October 2, 2018
From filmmaker James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

To amplify the launch of Aquaman, Warner Bros. Pictures is looking for an animator who can create an animated GIF sticker pack to be used to promote the film's release!

Artists should create a minimum of at least 2 animated stickers, where 1 should be Aquaman and the others can be another character or symbol of your choosing. The goal is to show your unique style and how you can bring these characters to life as cool, sharable animated GIF stickers! Based on the submitted stickers Warner Bros. Pictures will select one overall artist to create the final GIF sticker pack. For more details on the exact requirements, check out the 'The GIF Sticker Pack' section below.

One (1) overall Selected Artist will be chosen by Warner Bros. Pictures and receive $7,500 to complete the full ten sticker pack which will be used on the film's social channels. Five (5) additional Finalists will also be selected and potentially have their work featured across the film's marketing campaign and awarded with $500 each.
