Share your poster with #PosterSpyPreacher

AMC and PosterSpy are inviting you to create an alternative poster for the first season of Preacher, which makes its UK TV debut 23rd October.

Based on the comic of the same name by Garth Ennis, Steven Dillon and Glenn Fabry, the series tells the bizarre tale of a Texan Preacher, his unapologetic ex-girlfriend and an Irish vampire.

About AMC

AMC is available in the UK via the BT Sport package on BT TV and Sky channels 332 and 192 respectively.

However, AMC will be available to all Sky customers for free during the AMC Showcase, running from Saturday 28th October until Sunday November 5th.

The story:

The first series sees protagonist Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a reformed criminal turned preacher, struggling to escape is complicated past. Whilst lacking motivation and belief in his current profession, Jesse comes in contact with an unknown entity, which in turn unleashes a divine (and supernatural) power within him.

After crossing paths with foul-mouthed vampire, Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) in a bar, he decides they team up with Jesse’s no-nonsense ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga) on a mission to find God.

But what they don’t anticipate is what else they’ll come into contact with on that journey.

Design Tips:

Please focus on emulating the look and feel of the shows’ first season, in addition to using red, orange, yellow, blue, brown and monochrome. The winning entries will be judged by AMC and BT Television. Feel free to create work in your own styles, but we encourage you to experiment with new and innovative ideas outside your usual range.
