Mumbai: Get creative and grab a chance to re-design a collage for popular international band U2`s album ‘Achtung Baby’.

The invitation has been extended by Talenthouse India, an online crowd-sourcing platform.

The original cover of U2`s 1991 album ‘Achtung Baby’, which propelled the Irish rock band to fame, embodied the zeitgeist of the early 1990s.

To honour the 20th anniversary of the album`s release, U2 wants fans to send in their best interpretation of today`s global environment, to Talenthouse. The interpretations can be in the form of a photograph or artwork.

"Talenthouse India are looking to provide creative artists opportunities to work not only in Bollywood, but also giving them a platform to showcase their creativity internationally in Hollywood," Arun Mehra, CEO, Talenthouse India, said in a press statement.

After the submission of entries, 15 winners’ work will be compiled into a collage acting as a modern makeover for the album`s cover work. The winning submissions will be selected by U2`s official designer and photographer, Shaughn McGrath and Anton Corbijn.
