Win A Trabbie!
Ever fancied your own Trabant ? Custom-designed with that unique Achtung Baby era look ? Here's the competition you've been waiting for.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary edition of U2's seminal 1991 long-player, the band's visual geniuses - designer Shaughn McGrath and photographer Anton Corbijn - are inviting artists to submit photographs or artwork which would feature on the sleeve of Achtung Baby - if it was being released today.'Achtung Baby embodies a multitude of ideas and styles which are represented through the album cover artwork mosaic. The squared collage of photos symbolise the spirit of the album, the 90s and the changes in Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall... If Achtung Baby was released today, what photographs and/or artwork would be part of the collage?'
Shaughn and Anton will select 15 submissions which will be created into a collage and featured here on U2.com and promoted across U2's social media channels. Winners will receive their own copy of the final collage, a deluxe box-set and a digital camera. A sixteenth - 'People's Choice' - winner will be decided by you.
And (did we mention this ?) one overall winner will receive that custom designed, original Achtung Baby styled Trabant car.
Start making your art or shooting your photos now - submissions need to be in by January 23rd.This is where you'll find all the details.
