Wes Craven Sponsors The Mother of All Contests

There have been plenty of Scream 4 contests to keep the fans excited and involved, but never one quite like this: Wes Craven has announced the “Make Your Own SCREAM 4 Poster Contest”. What makes this one different? For one the main prize is attending the premiere! Two, the method of winning takes talent. Spamming just ain’t gonna work – it’s a simple mathematical equation of Talent=Reward. Read on for the details.

The top 10 poster designers will win a signed SCREAM 4 poster.

Two Grand Prize Winners will be invited to join me at the Los Angeles Premiere of SCREAM 4 on Monday, April 11th 2011.


On Twitter, submit a link to your SCREAM 4 homemade poster. You must include @wescraven, @scream4 and #SCREAM4 along with your photo link for a completed entry. If you are 18 years old or older and are able to be in LA on April 11, 2011. You must be 18 years old or older to be a Grand Prize Winner. All Grand Prize Winners will be responsible for their own transportation and accommodations in Los Angeles – I will only be providing tickets to the premiere screening of SCREAM 4.

My creative team and I will be the judges. All submissions must be received by 11:59pm(PST) on Thursday, April 7th 2011.

All winners will be announced via my Twitter account on Friday, April 8th 2011.

And remember: New decade. New rules…

Visit Craven’s Blog and Twitter for up-to-date/amended info.

We know a certain fan artist whose works have been lauded as “better than official” and there’s an insane amount of artistic talent on our forums too. Hope to see a Scream-Trilogy visitor win! Speaking of…

Other contest action

PopSugar have a contest going to attend the premiere as well as be their red carpet correspondent interviewing the cast and crew. It’s down to five finalists, but you can view their pitch videos and vote who should win. One of our forum members Desirae is one of those finalists so we’d appreciate it if you could vote her in!

We recently opened our own humble contest – US residents, have you entered yet? We’ve made it very easy to enter and you could win a Ghostface costume or mask!

  1. do we draw it? or can we use the computer?

  2. o m f g im totally going to enter shoot i want a signed scre4m poster

  3. Nothing…and i mean nothing is as simple and outstanding as that “White” poster with a 4 made out of a Butcher knife. In my opinion…that’s the best S4 artwork/poster i have seen thus far.

  4. @JRT: I totally agree. Simple and plain.

  5. If they could provide your plane tickets, then it would be worth entering.

  6. And Scream fans outside the U.S. are left with nothing to participate/win…

  7. THEMADBUTCHER if you are reding this, you need to submit this poster http://themadbutcher.deviantart.com/art/quot-Scre4m-quot-Final-Cast-Poster-198747094 NOW!!

  8. This contest sounds amazing! But it SUCKS that you have to tweet your poster in. You can easily search for those tags on twitter and steal other people’s posters and tweet them yourself.

  9. I was about to say the same thing, Cheshire. TheMadButcher would certainly be a shoe-in to win the grand prize, no question.

  10. Well, damn. I live in Canada.

    And by the way, what prevents someone from claiming a fan poster is their own and sending it? I’m just worried I’m going to get ripped off lol

  11. Because we would notice from the posted winning results and contact Wes.

  12. Haha nice! “The Poster Police” :P

    I don’t know if there is a way to enter the contest and specify that I’m only eligible to win a signed poster. A signed poster by Wes would be a good consolation prize haha

  13. Wow, awesome contests. I wish travel expenses were covered in that grand prize. I’m definitely entering, though. :D

  14. Does anyone know where to get high-res promo pics of the cast? The ones “TheMadButcher” used for his fan posters?

  15. So you just tweet it in the general tweet space on your page?

  16. If anyone’s interested, I worked on one last night and just finished it this morning. This is a kinda jokey one but had to give it a go :P. I intend to try and fire out another few but I agree, Mad Butcher’s is freakin’ awesome!
