Missed out on our livestream with Director Steven S. DeKnight? Don’t worry, you can watch the replay!

Your last name may not be Pentecost, but you can still help avert the apocalypse. Pacific Rim Uprising will be available via download on June 5 and on Blu-ray/DVD June 19, 2018. To celebrate, we want to see what your Jaeger would look like on your turf and give you prizes for it!

Create your own Jaeger and place it where you live, anyplace in the world you may be–maybe it's posing in your actual backyard, protecting the town square, or defending a local landmark. There are tons of options! Your Jaeger can be inserted into a photo or you can artistically recreate the location.

First, Second, and Third Place winners will be chosen by Steven S. DeKnight, Director of Pacific Rim Uprising!

Check out an exclusive Interview with Director Steven S. DeKnight!

Step 1Design Your Own Jaeger

Your Jaeger can be on patrol, posing heroically, mid-battle, or another activity you can think of! Watch the trailer and check out the assets from the film for more inspiration and learn more about Pacific Rim Uprising.

Step 2Show off your corner of the world!

Choose a place in your hometown (your yard, the center of town, a nearby landmark, etc.). Place your Jaeger in your chosen location via photo manipulation or artistic recreation.

*Don't forget to give your hometown a shout-out in your title or description for a chance to be featured in our Deviant Spotlight!

I think this is going to be the most stressful 5 days of my life, just waiting for the 25 semi-finalists to be announced.
I've done other contests (not on here), but just waiting with nothing to distract me is going to be nerve raking. There're SO MANY amazing pieces.

Good luck to everyone who got their entry in for review!

I know the contest is over and all but just out curiosity from reading the rules. I have made my entry before the deadline. It said, "No illegible, incomplete, forged or altered entries will be accepted." Does that mean no changes after the deadline or before it?

After the deadline. You can always edit/update your entry by clicking the Edit Deviation as much as you want until the deadline.
