In Batman lore, it’s a setting and scene that’s nearly as prominent as the Batcave. Wayne Manor is dressed, decorated and filled with the finely dressed movers and shakers of Gotham. Actors, models, politicians, executives… Anyone who’s anyone is there sipping champagne and munching on crab cakes, enjoying a soiree that will clearly be the talk of the society pages and gossip sites the next day.
Of course, usually this scene is then broken up by the Joker or the Riddler followed quickly by a sudden appearance of the Caped Crusader, but you get the idea. Glamorous parties are a place where things happen, and many fans have dreamt about putting on their best suit or dress and mingling with Gotham’s finest. Of course, they’ve never had a chance to actually do that until now.
To celebrate the September premiere of Gotham, the new show focusing on the years between the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents and the emergence of Batman, FOX is hosting a pair of contests that will send two lucky winners on an all-expense trip to New York to attend the Gotham premiere party.
Think you can assemble an amazing Gotham poster? If you can, you may want to enter the Gotham Poster Contest. FOX has released a batch of photos and image assets which you can use to put together an intriguing one-sheet similar to the ones you’ve been seeing in the pages of your favorite magazines and comics. Something like this…
The people behind the top ten posters will all receive Gotham prize packs, and will have a chance at winning the Grand Prize, which is the trip to NY to attend the party, as well as a printed version of their poster signed by the Gotham cast.
But that’s only one of the ways to win. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk the Gotham city streets? Well, the Gotham Trailer Contest might give you an idea. This contest calls on fans and aspiring filmmakers to recreate the below trailer using live action, still images, animation or anything else you can imagine.
Cast yourself as Jim Gordon, Fish Mooney or Oswald Cobblepot. Build Gotham City out of clay or blocks. Have fun with it and be creative. FOX will edit together the best submitted scenes and moments into a special fan trailer and send the folks behind the selected scenes Gotham prize packs. Those people will also be in the running for the Premiere Party Grand Prize.
Click here for further details and rules. Both contests end on August 20, 2014, so you’ll need to act quickly. But don’t miss out. We’re talking about the premiere party for a new Batman-themed show during Batman’s 75th anniversary year! You may not meet Bruce Wayne or wind up in the newspaper, but it’s still going to be the party of a lifetime.
