AICN & Universal Have A WOLFMAN Opportunity For You...

Merrick here...
...with a quick WOLFMAN contest for you to sink your fangs into. This one's pretty straight forward: send me images - OF YOUR CREATION - built around Universal's "Wolfman" character. YES, go ahead and use other Universal creatures/characters as well (Google 'Universal Monsters' if you don't know of any), but WOLFMAN must be incorporated into your entry in some way. The rest? Is up to you. Artwork can be traditional or digital - just be sure to send your image file in a format that can be easily opened/accessed by anyone. Winning artwork WILL be presented here on AICN - if you don't want it displayed on this site, don't submit your work. The deadline for contest entires is 11:59:59PM Wednesday February 10. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR CONTEST ENTRY! Your address is to expedite prize fulfillment only and will not be used for any other purposes. All information will be summarily deleted at contest's end. PRIZES CAN NOT BE SHIPPED TO A P.O. BOX - so we'll need a physical mailing address. The coolest image (evaluated on overall creativity first and foremost - clearly artistry, etc. will also be considered) will receive 1 (ONE) prize pack, courtesy of the fine folks at Universal.
Said prize pack will include:

(1) Original, 1941 Wolf Man 2 disc DVD (1) THE WOLFMAN Soundtrack (1) THE WOLFMAN Poster (1) Hat - Black, 100% Cotton hat with brass fastener. THE WOLFMAN title treatment is embroidered in white glow-in-the-dark thread on the front panel (1) T-Shirt - 100% Cotton t-shirt with THE WOLFMAN teaser face image screened large on the front of the shirt and THE WOLFMAN title treatment screened large across the back (1) Coaster - 4" round disposable drink coaster with full moon image, title, release date, and web address printed in black (1) Cup - Disposable plastic 22oz cup with custom full color WOLFMAN art

Submit any entries to the e-mail link provided below (NOT the "Merrick" link provided above).


We'd like to offer a huge thanks to Universal for making this contest possible. Their new version of THE WOLFMAN - directed by Joe Johnston - will hit theaters February 12 (official website HERE).

    Er...whoever enters this will win

    by sansara07

    Mainly because there's likely to be one entry. The AICN crowd just sit around scratching their asses all day and munching on cheetos. This sounds like too much effort.

    "what the fuck is a 'woflman'?"

    by jim

    It's a Dutch word for Seller of Waffles; also derogatory slang for Belgian (ex, "a family of Woflmen just moved in next door - there goes the neighborhood").

    If you have to Google 'Universal Monsters'

    Soooo... spend precious time for $60 worth of crap?

    by Acappellaman

    Seriously, it would cost more to make the artwork than to just buy the stuff from Target. The least they could have done was throw in a Sideshow Collectibles figure. Meh!

    this is what a "woflman" is.

    The Wolf Man Basil Gogos Poster Give Away...

    by WriteFromLeft

    ...was a very cool idea. This AICN contest is fine; I wouldn't complain. Too bad I'm not artistic. The Wolf Man DVD and CD are worth shooting for.

    'The Wolf Man' > 'The Wolfman'....

    by Cervantes

    ....I STILL reckon the original title looks better written that way compared to the new title....

  • Feb. 4, 2010, 4:45 p.m. CST

    so not interested in seeing this...

    the contest is cool though. heh heh heh.

    can we use

    by yabory

    existing images off the web but changed enough to be called our own?

  • Feb. 4, 2010, 6:19 p.m. CST

    by MikeTheSpike

    Rather than an image, will you accept a poorly-crafted tale about how the Wolfman can go back in time and give us world peace?

  • Feb. 4, 2010, 8:50 p.m. CST

    That's a lot of work for shit I could find in my car.

    Merrick, what happened to the Christmas giveaways contest?

    by YackBacker

    I might have missed it if you posted results, but I don't recall seeing anything.

    Can we send in multiple images...

    by blalock

    Or just one?

    by MacReady452

    ..then noticed the prizes. Now I struggle to find the motivation. Could Emily Blunt rub the hat on her cooz or something? What the FUCK?!

    I haven't been this excited for a movie in a while.

    Those prizes are really not worth the efford

    by ELGordo

    Unless you already have a wolfman image lying around and want stuff that the press gets for free. If you do have a wolfman image already, I'm guessing you already have the DVD release as well.

  • Feb. 5, 2010, 8:29 a.m. CST

    I'm still just excited

    by HapaPapa72

    That it's rated-R. None of this PG-13 shit. A wolfman without some gore is like, like a vampire without fangs. Oh. Nevermind.
