Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate sees Arnold Schwarzenegger (“T-800”) and Linda Hamilton (“Sarah Connor”) return in their iconic roles to defend against an all new enemy. Directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker and franchise creator James Cameron, along with David Ellison – this action spectacle will call upon both Sarah and the T-800 to save their future.

Please include the full title of the film (Terminator: Dark Fate) in your work (either title treatment, or originally-drawn) and tag the @Skydance social media accounts when posting your work! Whether it's an illustration, a digital painting, or even an alternative poster design, the judges are looking for captivating and imaginative artwork. Creators are encouraged to check out the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer below for additional inspiration.

Five (5) pieces of art will be selected by the team of judges from Skydance Media! The Selected Creators will receive $2,000 for each piece selected. Artwork will potentially be featured across the film's marketing campaign, including social accounts, print materials, and merchandise.
