Dear artists, we invite you to participate in a contest for an amazing (!!!) rock band. They knock socks off their 100,000+ fans. They totally rock!
We welcome out-of-the-box creative talents to create a set of 5 posters for their upcoming album.
The great news: ALL PARTICIPANTS WIN!!!
Even though only one winner gets paid – ALL entries will be rewarded (as long as participants submit all 5 posters that match suggested story lines and get at least 3 stars rating).
Want to know the name of the rock band? Patience! We will let you know when we are ready to announce the winners! Let us just say – it’s 4 very handsome and extremely talented and influential men who are here to change the world – spread a message of wisdom, love, true masculinity, peace… and FUN! They are wise but edgy! They can fool around but they are no fools! ;-)
THE STORY THEMES:
Poster 1. 4 deeply rooted trees are heading toward the red sun. (Each guys is a tree... They legs are the trunk and large curvy roots of trees). They are extending towards the sun, despite life's challenges)...
Poster 2. Safari rock party (animal print – zebra, leopard, tiger, giraffe). Some animals have their heads blown off from the music - the heads become colorful pieces of art; it's not a bloody scene, rather humorous).
Poster 3. Heavy metal band of a Rooster, Mongoose, Fire Horse & Pitt Bull (it's guys' nicknames). Would be fun if Rooster has peacock tail, and all colors of the poster match...
Poster 4. Magic stage... Heavy metal band made up of archetypal King, Warrior, Lover & Magician energies.
Poster 5. Anything goes (we welcome any other ideas. But the guys must look VERY sexy and attractive).
The posters should be playful, not "dark".
Styles that we welcome: Fusion of modernism / abstract / avant-garde and fairy tale / fantasy.
The posters MUST include photos of our band members... All photos must be retouched and photo manipulated when needed.

IMAGES: 4 photos of artists are attached. But please send us your email and we will give you access to Dropbox where you will find many more photos of the band members . For other images – create them or use free stock photos.
IMPORTANT: I see some first submissions are very simplistic graphics. We would like to see something a bit more sophisticated and centered not around illustrations as much, but photo manipulation and photo collages.
Inspirations (just from technical stand point, not a story):
Posters are horizontal (landscape format): 26 X 40’ inches with bleed area (which is 61 cm x 91 cm);
It’s 24-36 final size after the trimming.
We want to see all posters EXTREMELY unusual, catchy, creative.Unleash your creativity! Have fun with it!
So, let's rock! :-)
