Artists Selected On
February 28, 2018
The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot who has since been caught up in a criminal underworld. But when a massive threat is unleashed on the world, he’s given the chance to live up to his potential with the help of an unlikely group of heroes. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

To celebrate the release of the film, artists, designers and illustrators from around the world are invited to join the uprising by creating one-of-a-kind static artwork for Pacific Rim Uprising.

Artists should watch the trailer below and check out the film’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Feel free to take inspiration from the characters, the plot, the location, and anything else you feel represents this film! Artists may submit static artwork (posters, paintings, illustrations, etc.) for this opportunity. Please no photography or video.

Up to five pieces of art will be selected by Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment. The Selected Artists will receive $2,000 for each piece chosen and potentially have their work used in the Pacific Rim Uprising marketing campaign.
things to consider
Before creating your submission, please consider the following:
  • Pacific Rim has always enjoyed a creative relationship with the fan community. The diversity of art inspired by this vibrant world of monsters and mechs continues to inspire the filmmakers that are building the future of this universe, and as a thank-you, Legendary and Universal want to invite the broader artistic community following the film’s marketing campaign to be a part of it.
  • Artists may submit static artwork (posters, paintings, illustrations, etc.) for this opportunity. Please no photography or video.
  • Artists may include the title treatment logo in their artwork.
  • Artists should use the approved stills and one sheet poster as a point of reference only.
