Create artwork inspired by love or dating

Creators Selected On
September 6, 2018

In this age of “Swipe right, Swipe Left” relationships, what does love mean to you? Dating apps has not only made it easier to meet new people but it has also complicated the art of dating as well. Welcome to the new-age millennial dating!

Talenthouse is inviting artists from around the world to submit their best artwork, illustration, graphic design, photography, GIF, or animation expressing their interpretation of dating in 2018. It can be all about the first date or kiss, the emotions while falling in or out of love, “ghosting” or love at “first swipe”. Check out this mood board for inspiration.

The work should be compatible for social media channels, namely Facebook, and Instagram. Illustration, graphic design, photography, GIFs, or short form video are all allowed. Creators are also welcome to submit any previous art that they have created, if it is focussed on dating and love.

A number of stand out pieces will be selected and shared across the Talenthouse social media channels reaching over 3 million people worldwide. There is also a unique opportunity for your work to be licensed through Talenthouse Arthouse by brands and publishers in need of original images surrounding love or dating designs.

Let’s create art for the NEW GENERATION OF LOVE.

  • Do create artwork that is well-suited for social media sharing (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), and that is inspired by your idea of love and todays way of dating in either static, GIF or video (max 15 sec) format.
  • Use the mood board for inspiration on ways that can be used to present love and dating ideas in a range of interesting and cool formats.
  • You may submit up to 10 works. Feel free to submit existing artwork or something you have created specifically for this brief.
  • Do ensure you own the rights to artwork you submit.
  • Do not use any copyrighted or stock material.
  • Do not include images of any persons under the age of 18 in the image. If a person is included in the submission, a model release form needs to be provided in case the artwork is selected.
  • Work should not infringe landmark copyright or service marks of a third party. For example, please do not include places & landmarks with known restrictions (e.g. isolated image of the Chrysler Building in New York, etc.).
  • Work should not show any immoral or adult content.

This is the inspiration around the style of Flash Creative Invites.

This format of the Creative Invite focuses around a key theme or event and will only be live for a short amount of time! The submission period might only be 1 or 2 weeks, calling for your best artwork in exchange for exposure on Talenthouse social channels. Think of it as a regular creative challenge!
