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.

It’s not easy to get a foot in the door of the comic book industry — which is why Darby Pop Publishing is helping talented creators “break into comics” with an annual competition. After the phenomenal success of their Indestructible: Stingray and The Women of Darby Pop contests, Darby Pop is kicking off 2017 with their third “Breaking Into Comics” contest which provides a new opportunity for writers and artists to get their work seen via the slightly-skewed world of Russell Brettholtz’s and Miguel Mendonca’s Side-Kicked.
Instead of contributing to an anthology or focusing on a single 22-page issue, this time around participants will compete to be one of the two 11-page stories that Darby Pop will publish digitally on ComiXology AND include as part of a brand-new physical edition of the Side-Kicked trade paperback.
Assignment: Writers will need to submit a complete 11-page comic book script focusing on one of two crime-fighting partnerships – Atalanta and Frostbite or Flying Fox and Jolt. And your tale must feature either their first meeting or their first mission together (or both). Artists will need to submit a pin-up page of either Atalanta and Frostbite or Flying Fox and Jolt along with one full-page example of sequential art. The two winning artists will then bring the two winning writers’ scripts to life while working with Darby Pop Publishing’s editorial team. All four characters – and an overall sense of the world, tone, etc. – can be found in the original Side-Kicked trade paperback and/or digital single-issues.
Prizing: First and foremost, writers and artists will see their work published and publicized as a part of the Side-Kicked Vol. 1 trade paperback reprint AND as a special digital issue of Side-Kicked on ComiXology. In addition, each of the winning writers will receive $100 and 2 copies of the trade paperback. Each of the winning artists will receive no less than $200 and 4 copies of the trade paperback.
You can learn more about Atalanta and Frosbite; and Flying Fox and Jolt.
Find out how to submit your finished script(s) and art. Deadline is Friday, January 20th, 2017. The winning artists will be working from the winning writers’ scripts in February ’17.
Check out the Submission Form for writers and artists. Submissions not including signed release form will NOT be read or looked at.
