Universal Teams Up with Deviant Art on Pacific Rim Uprising Art Promotion – Jaegers in Hometown
With Pacific Rim Uprising set to release on Digital June 5th, and arriving on Blu-ray/DVD June 19th, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has partnered with the online art community Deviant Art to host a “Create Your Jaeger to Battle Kaiju in your HomeTown” global art contest.
The concept is for artists around the world to create their own Jaeger and place it where they live, anyplace in the world, a key landmark, back of a house, near a famous statue, etc. Jaegers can be inserted into a photo or can be artistically recreated.
First, Second, and Third Place winners will be chosen by Steven S. DeKnight, Director of Pacific Rim Uprising!
As pieces of artwork are submitted, some of the best entries will be showcased. Entries are being populated here, where you’ll see some initial pieces including one with a place in South Africa.
