They want to see your designs, which can be submitted via Talenthouse, and together with Yahoo Style’s editor in chief Joe Zee will select up to 20 winners whose costumes could be turned from a sketch into reality and featured in the final film. The most important thing to note is that your design needs to include room for arms, legs, and a head. Besson says, “My hope is that by offering a contest like this to artists worldwide, we will gain access to inspired and original creations from a plethora of fresh perspectives, and the film will benefit from this collaboration.” Winners will be featured on Yahoo Style and in the film, plus receive $1000 for their work.
