If Achtung Baby was released today, what photographs and/or artwork would be part of the collage?
That's the central premise behind a new contest that invites anyone with an eye for imagery to help redesign a new cover for Achtung Baby. It's a collaboration between U2 and Talenthouse with some pretty sweet prizes, including an actual Trabant car.
Fans are invited to submit a photo or piece of art that fits the meaning of the original Achtung Baby cover but reflects life as it is today. Anton Corbijn and longtime U2 designer Shaughn McGrath will pick 16 winning images that will be made into a new collage and featured on U2.com. All 16 winners get some nice prizes, and the grand prize winner also gets a real Trabant car.
Submissions are due by January 23, 2012. Get all of the details and submission instructions on Talenthouse.com.
