Competition to design a poster for new Filth film

Filth still

To celebrate the release of Irvine Welsh’s film adaptation of Filth, Lionsgate and Talenthouse are inviting graphic designers, illustrators and artists to create original artwork for a limited edition promotional poster to be featured in The Metro UK.

This is the perfect opportunity to promote your uniqueskills and potentially see your original poster design advertised in a national newspaper read by millions.

Creators are to take inspiration from the darker themes of the film’s protagonist Bruce Robertson, played by James McAvoy, a scheming and corrupt police officer, who will stop at nothing to get what he wants – making this is a complex story for artists and designers to explore.

The  winning design will be chosen by  judgess Irvine Welsh, the novelist who’s book the film is adpated from  and the film’s director  Jon S. Baird.

As well as seeing their poster in The Merto, the winner will receive a £1,000 bursary, tickets to the premiere, a signed and framed image of their work, and  get a bumper bag of Filth merchandise!

Judges are looking for artwork that is eye-catching and provocative, pushing the artistic boundaries while still making it appealing for the public to enjoy. Submissions are open from 25 July – 5 September 2013.

Filth is being released in UK cinemas in October.
