January 4, 2019
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within.

Artists, designers and illustrators from around the world are invited to create one-of-a-kind static artwork for Glass inspired by the latest imagery, trailers, film series, and the film’s themes. Check out the “Things to Consider” section below for additional notes.

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. Artists are encouraged to check out these reference photos from Glass for additional inspiration (please note that the provided material is not to be used directly in submissions).

Artwork will potentially be featured across the film's marketing campaign, including social accounts, print materials and merchandise. Five (5) pieces of art will be selected by Universal Pictures. The Selected Artists will receive $2,000 for each piece selected. An additional five (5) pieces will be selected as Finalists and receive $400 each. Finalists may have their work used in official Glass events, activations and pop-up galleries with credit given.

about glass
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).
