Anton Corbijn is teaming up with DeviantArt for a contest to promote his new movie, The American. Inspired by the movie’s main character played by George Clooney, photographers are to capture undercover, slice-of-life photos in and around their neighborhoods for the contest. 25 finalists will be chosen by DeviantArt staff, and Anton will choose the final winner.

DeviantArt is a popular online community for artists of all disciplines to share and promote their work. Members are mostly independent creators, but a few professionals also have accounts there. If you haven’t seen the trailer for The American, check it out!


Amanda is an enthusiastic, globe-trotting Mode fan who discovered the band in late 1998. Although she often feels like she got a late start in the Depeche Mode's career, she's survived nearly 20 years of the fandom, five new albums and multiple meetings with her love for the band intact (and stronger than ever). Amanda is a life-long creative, a classically trained graphic designer, working professionally as a User Experience Designer for one of the world's largest technology companies. When not at work or traveling for Depeche, she enjoys character illustration, comics, movies and Japanese Culture. And cats. Lots of Cats.
