Send Us Your Monster & Maiden Photo!

We want to see you posed like this!

Fancy yourself a movie meanie? Feel like a damsel in distress?


Find yourself a partner and enter Swann’s Monsters & Maidens Photo Contest.

In celebration of our Dec. 18 auction Monsters & Maidens: A Film Poster Collection, we’re inviting fans to submit their own photo, posing as the classic movie pairing of a monster holding a distressed maiden.

Here, Swann’s Nicho Lowry and Kristina Goodstadt get in the spirit. 


Put your own twist on it and you could win a terrifically campy horror movie poster!

Winners will be selected by our celebrity judge: The World Champion Judah Friedlander, comedian and star of 30 Rock and the monster movie Feast.

Submissions must be emailed by Thurs., Dec. 13 to monstercontest@swanngalleries.com, with winners announced Mon., Dec. 17.

Tweet your photo and see other submissions at #monstersandmaidens.

So grab a loved one and get snapping!


Inspiration may be found in the catalogue.
The winning photo will be awarded one poster of Swann’s choosing. By submitting an image you agree to allow its use in Swann Galleries marketing materials. Please limit the size of your attached image to 2MB.
