Hands up if you, or if someone you knew, had a Trainspotting poster up in their room at some point in your life? Yep, thought so. Something about the grit and humour that Irvine Welsh injects into his writing can inspire designers to produce some of the most iconic posters of all time. In time for the film adaptation of Welsh’s new book, Filth, Talenthouse is offering the public the chance to design a limited edition promotional poster that will be judged by director Jon S. Baird and author Irvine Welsh himself. The winner will receive £1000 and their design promoted alongside the film as it is released. Have you got what it takes to make the next iconic movie poster design? Apply now!
