Clement and Waititi invite Kiwis to design promotional poster for 'What we do in the Shadows'

Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement are outsourcing the design of the "unofficial poster" for their upcoming film What we do in the Shadows to regular Kiwis by launching a competition that requires entrants to send in their best creative efforts. 

This winning poster, as decided by the vampires and the public, will be used in cinemas across the country and the designer will win a double pass to the New Zealand premiere in either Auckland or Wellington. The top ten will also be on display at the premiere events.

In a further promotional effort, Waititi and Clement have also released a teaser that provides a glimpse at some of the hobbies of the protagonists in the film.

This new clip follows last week's release of the film's trailer, which has already racked up over 400,000 views on YouTube.  

Serious candidates with a high level of design ability are invited to email deliciousnecks@gmail.com to receive the key art and rules to enter the poster design competition.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
