Sony Pictures wants your 'Venom' art
If you’re an artistically talented “Venom” fan, Sony Pictures has just the symbiotic relationship for you! In celebration of the Marvel Comics adaptation hitting the big screen in October, Sony is launching a contest in search of “Venom” art. Official details read as follows:
Artists, designers and illustrators from around the world are invited to create one-of-a-kind static artwork for Venom inspired by the latest trailer. Venom faces off against Riot and we’d like you to summon your inner anti-hero and unleash your imagination to show us the best battle scene you can capture.
Whether it’s an illustration, a digital painting or an alternative poster design, the judges are looking for captivating and imaginative static artwork to help drive promotion and excitement socially across the film’s marketing and digital channels. Artists are encouraged to check out the trailer and Venom’s social channels. Artists may also use the approved imagery assets and motion posters (horizontal / vertical) for inspiration.
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 Columbia TriStar Marketing Group, Inc. The Selected Artists will receive $2,000 for each piece selected.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland,” “Gangster Squad”), “Venom” is based on the Marvel Comics character that debuted in 1984 in the pages of “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The big-screen take sets Tom Hardy (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Revenant”) as Eddie Brock, an ordinary man who bonds with an alien symbiote that gives him superhuman abilities but also threatens to transform his personality into something monstrous.
“Venom” also stars Michelle Williams (“All the Money in the World”), Riz Ahmed (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) and Reid Scott (HBO’s “Veep”). The film is scripted by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”), Kelly Marcel (“Fifty Shades of Grey”) and Will Beall (the upcoming “Aquaman” adaptation).
“Venom” opens in theaters October 5, 2018.
