Poster Contest - UPDATE

Last week we posted telling you about our fabulous poster contest sponsored by and who are putting up some fabulous prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd place, click here to read the previous post and rules of entry.

So far we have had a great response, though some of you would rather not use your face to personalise the poster. The 411 realise that many bloggers would rather remain discreet with their personal photos, therefore we have decided to relax the rules a little. From now, though we still encourage you to personalise your posters as much as you can, we are now accepting mock up movie posters without your own personal face included, you can now use your dream team cast in a film you have made-up, or for those of you who write books why not turn it into a movie with the actors you imagine playing your characters and of course for those of you who want to be the main stars of a movie we are welcoming them with open arms.

We are looking for fun wacky ideas, so let your imagination run wild with you.

Below is a poster submitted by one of our favourite readers Matty of who has donned a part in the “Good Will Hunting” Remake, Robin Williams reprising his character!

Every Thursday we will post some submitted posters for your viewing pleasure along with updates about the contest until the contest closes at the end of April.

To enter your poster, just email and attach your poster, please put ‘411 poster contest’ in the subject bar.

And lets not forget our fabulous sponsors and who are putting up some fabulous prizes Including a personalised Bobblehead, paintings (displayed on the right) and vouchers to our winners.

haha! it required a certain level of photoshop skill to really match a face to its poster n not looked oddly standing out. i guess its angle counts too? :)
