Tiffany Shlain (founder of the Webby Awards)  has come to Talenthouse to find an aspiring designer who would like the opportunity to work with her and create the official movie poster for her newest full feature film “Connected.”

Designers are asked to visit, download the “Poster Logo + Photos to Use (ZIP)”  and use the material to create an original movie poster that best captures both the concepts and feeling conveyed in the movie.

The winning design will be used in the marketing campaigns for “Connected” and will be put into consideration for The Hollywood Reporters prestigious 2011 Key Art Award. The designer will also be offered an internship with Tiffany if they are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, or three hours of mentorship with Tiffany if they live outside the area.
