To coincide with the UK release on August 23, PosterSpy invites you to create a poster that celebrates the masterful aesthetic and visual style of the legendary director, Pedro Almodovar.

This Creative Brief is open to worldwide participants.


The Story

Described as ‘semi-autobiographical’, Pain and Glory tells of a series of re-encounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films.

Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.


Design Tips

Entrants are encouraged to draw on the rich history of Almodovar’s visual styles to create a poster that is ultimately a tribute to his work. It is not essential for the creative to refer to any particular characters or scenes from the film; rather to be inspired by Almodovar’s cinematic pantheon to tell the story of this film director.

You can be inspired by film posters of his past, or the aesthetic style of the films themselves.

Please also find stills and all available assets via the “inspiration” tab for further reference and inspiration only. i.e You may use them to create your own illustrations, but you cannot use the images directly or simply add filters to them in your submission.



Create your artwork at A2 (4960 x 7016 pixels), portrait, 300dpi minimum. PSD or Ai.

Titles and logos are not required but can be used if desired.

Artwork submitted must be 100% your own original content. Do not use any images you don’t have the rights to.

Feel free to share your artwork on your own social channels via #TheArtofAlmodovar

This brief is moderated and only entries that follow the T&Cs will be accepted.


The Awards

One selected artist (1st place) £1000, one selected artist (2nd place) will receive £500.



This Creative Brief will be judged by Pedro Almodovar.


How to Enter

Create a free account and upload your artwork via our submission form.

Entries uploaded should be a low resolution version of your poster, around 1500 pixels wide, 5MB in size and in JPEG or PNG formats.

Artists will also need to send their A2 hi-resolution (300dpi) PSD/Ai file to painandglory@posterspy.com via WeTransfer.

WeTransfer is a free and secure service. Once the winners are chosen, all hi-res files will be removed from our secure servers.
