LG Celebrates New 38″ 38UC99 UltraWide Monitor with Creative Competition

LG1

LG has just introduced the largest 21:9 ratio monitor, sporting a gigantic curved 38″ screen with a 3840 x 1600 display, specifically with a graphic artist’s needs in mind. Since the monitor is geared directly at creatives, LG decided to celebrate the release of the new monitor by hosting a creative competition with a grand prize dream workstation worth $10,0000!

To enter, simply create an original 21:9 ratio image, upload it to your social network using the hashtags: #LGUltraWideFestival, #DreamCanvas2016, #38UC99, and visit the competition website to officially submit your image and post. From there, 15 finalists will be announced and be awarded with their very own LG UltraWide 38” IPS USB-C monitor.

During the festival, other users will be able to see and download the submitted images, which in a combination with a panel of judges, will decide the winner of the $10,000 grand prize. The application round is from Sept. 21st, 2016 to Oct. 4th, 2016, with the images submitted being available to download from Nov. 9th to Nov. 22th!

This year’s contest judges include: illustrator Jon Burgerman, graphic designer Mike Kus, and artist Dirk Bakker. More images and info below!

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
