May 13, 2019

Godzilla: King of the Monsters comes to theaters this Spring, 2019. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

To amplify the launch of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Legendary Pictures LLC ("Legendary") and Warner Bros. Pictures are creating an art activation campaign leading up to this film's release, and they want to collaborate with you!

Artists, designers, and illustrators from around the world are invited to create one-of-a-kind static artwork for Godzilla: King of the Monsters inspired by the latest imagery and teaser trailer from the film.

Whether it's an illustration, a digital painting, or even an alternative poster design, the judges are looking for captivating and imaginative artwork to help drive promotion and excitement socially across the film's marketing and digital channels.

Artwork will potentially be featured across the film's marketing campaign, including social accounts, print materials and merchandise. Five pieces of art will be selected by Legendary and Warner Bros. Pictures, and the Selected Artists will receive $2,000 for each piece selected.
