If you’re a Brooklyn visual artist, we’ve got your next blank canvas. Creative advertising agency SuperHeroes New York has bought the back cover of the Red Hook Star Revue for August and September and wants you to fill it. Really. No games, no strings. It’s all yours.
We have two rounds for this project. For our August spot, submit your designs by July 22nd. For September, submit by August 22nd. You can submit to one round or both - that’s your prerogative - but we will only pick one artist for each round with no repeaters. Our two favorites get the spot on the back cover, but every submission will get shown some love on this site. (Please check out our FAQ for more submission guidelines).

When we’re not giving away ad space in the Red Hook Star Revue, we’re busy saving the world from boring advertising. SuperHeroes is an international creative agency with offices in Amsterdam and New York. Over the past 8 years, we’ve built up an enviable reputation for creating innovative, smart and distinctive campaigns for brand partners such as LG, Converse, MTV, ASUS and Coca-Cola.
Maybe we had too many beers when we came up with this, maybe we just wanna see what kind of talent is out there. Who cares.
Nothing too official. The team in the SuperHeroes New York office will weigh in with their favourites. Final decision comes down to boss man and guy with checkbook, Rob Zuurbier. Send bribes and thinly veiled threats here: Rob@hellosuperheroes.com
We’ll showcase every submission on this site and make sure to show you some love and link to your portfolio.
You made it; it’s all yours. We’re not trying to steal your shit. We just want to show it off.
If you would like to be considered for the August spot, submit by July 22nd. For the September spot, submit by August 22nd. The winning design from the first round will be printed on the back cover of the August edition of the Red Hook Star Revue, while the winning design from the second round will be printed on the back cover of the September issue.
The back cover of the paper measures 9.75″ by 15.5″, but we accept artwork of all sizes and it will not affect your chances.
Baffling, we agree.
