Transform Vlad the Impaler!

Dracula Untold paints a new picture of the Dracula we know and fear, providing an original twist on the emotional story of transformation and immeasurable power.

Throughout the movie, the Transylvanian prince and soon-to-be vampire Vlad the Impaler goes through various changes on his quest to protect his family, his home, and himself from the cruel Turkish Empire.

We're challenging you to illustrate one of Vlad's monumental transformations—either into a flock of bats or into the vampire Dracula. Breathe new life into a depiction of these startling changes as Vlad the Impaler uses the strength of mind and body to meet the challenges of his journey.

"Reference elements from the motion picture Dracula Untold but may not directly copy them or make faithful renders of the actor's likenesses"

The red dragon armor and the lead actor's features direct from the film were prominent throughout the winning pieces

This rule shouldn't have been posted if it was being ignored during the judging

Taking away my entry...Some other entries deserved a spot more than some selected pieces

They were showcased in the billboards, as promised as a prize. Other than that, there has been no listing or any other way of notification.
