No: Creative Brief

No: Creative Brief film still

Design an alternative poster for Pablo Larraín's riveting political drama and be in with a chance of winning some awesome prizes.

To celebrate the theatrical release of No, the brilliant new film from Chilean director Pablo Larraín, starring Gael García Bernal as an ad executive who spearheads a campaign to defeat Augusto Pinochet, on Friday 8 February we're launching a brand new competition.


We're asking LWLies readers to design an alternative theatrical poster for No, using the layered assets we've provided in a handy downloadable folder. We've embedded the official poster below as a reference point, but we're looking for the most interesting and unique designs. You can use as much or as little text as you like.

The winning entry will be judged by none other than Gael García Bernal, and the winner will receive two tickets to a preview screening of No with a Gael García Bernal Q&A at London's Curzon Soho on Thursday 31 January, plus a framed print of their winning design and a copy of Made In Chile: Two Films By Pablo Larraín, featuring Post Mortem and Tony Manero. All entries will be included in a special Facebook gallery after the competition has closed.


Email your entry to with the subject line 'No Competition' or tweet or Instagram your design @LWLies with the hashtag #nocompetition by 17:00 on Tuesday 29 January.

NB: Entrants can upload a viewing version but should keep a hi-res copy big enough to be printed full sized on stand-by. Dimensions are as follows:

­    One-sheet – 27 x 40 inches (686 x 1020 mm)

­    Quad – 30 x 40 inches (762 x 1020 mm)

Good luck!


Official synopsis: With scant resources and constant scrutiny from individuals sympathetic to Pinochet's totalitarian regime, including ad agency colleagues and the secret police, this bold and enthralling film looks at how a team of Chile's "Mad Men" and opponents of the dictatorial government instigated change without resorting to violence during the 1988 plebiscite and with only 15 minutes of TV exposure in the early hours of the morning. The film seamlessly blends scripted scenes with archive footage and features many of the people who were banned in Chilean media when Pinochet was in power.
