January 7, 2020

To amplify the launch of the new film, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), Warner Bros. Pictures wants to collaborate with you for an exciting art activation!

Create one-of-a-kind static artwork for Birds of Prey inspired by the latest imagery and trailer from the film.
Celebrate the diverse group of Birds coming together and create artwork that showcases all of the dynamic, powerful and complex women that team up as a collective force.

Whether it's an illustration, digital painting, or an alternative poster design, the judges are looking for art that embraces the disruptive, infectiously fun, and rebellious tone of the film. Check out the film's trailer and social handles for more visual inspiration (links below).

5 pieces of work will be chosen, and the Selected Creators will receive $2,000 each, and potentially have their work featured across the film's on- and off-line marketing campaign and merchandise.
About Birds of Prey

You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

In the Warner Bros. Pictures film, Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary; Rosie Perez Renee Montoya; Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz; and Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis. Newcomer Ella Jay Basco also stars as Cassandra “Cass” Cain in her feature film debut.

Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, the film is based on characters from DC. Robbie also produced, alongside Bryan Unkeless and Sue Kroll. The film’s executive producers are Walter Hamada, Galen Vaisman, Geoff Johns, Hans Ritter, and David Ayer.
