We’re happy to announce the winners of the Masaan poster design contest.
It was a great pleasure to associate with Phantom Films once again. Masaan is a very special film, a far-cry from your typical movie and we’re happy to have been a small part of its journey. This contest was a great place to showcase talent from around the country; a big thanks to Ranjan Singh and Priyank Vyas of Phantom Films for making it happen. It was an honour to have the films director Neeraj Ghaywan, Anurag Kashyap and fusion band Indian Ocean on the jury to help select the winners.
The number of entries were overwhelming and we’d like to thank all the artists for taking part. Whether you’re a prize winner or not, this is a very special film and we hope you enjoyed creation process.
Selecting the winners of the contest wasn’t easy. Apart from the jury, we also factored in votes from the general public who showed their love for various artwork. Without further ado, we’d like to present all the winners below.
Prize: The winning prize is a Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch graphic tablet.

Prize: Each runners-up receives a Moleskine Art Plus Sketchbook worth Rs.2500.
A sombre touch to the poster, Jay Kay’s design also delves into the mood that Masaan stirs with its captivating story.
The poster leaves a breath of silence in its trail; this struck a chord with the jury.
