“’Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ encompasses a diverse array of characters from all parts of the universe,” said writer/director Luc Besson, “I believe the world we live in is filled with people from all walks of life who possess an abundance of creativity and untapped potential. 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.”
The contest, which will launch on Yahoo Style on October 7, 2015, runs through November 27, 2015. Editor in Chief of Yahoo Style, Joe Zee, will serve as one of the judges, along with the film’s writer/director Luc Besson and costume designer Olivier Bériot who will choose up to twenty winners whose designs will appear in the film. Winners will be announced on December 14, 2015."
