You made it!

Thanks for indulging us on the biggest day in the octopus calendar. We figured some of you might be feeling glum after our octocomp ended at the end of last month, so we've prepared a mini-competition to fill that void in your heart.

Your task is simple.

  1. Recreate and octopusify a famous work of art. Come up with a new name
  2. Share your betentacled creation on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #artopusenergy (please note: if you have a private Instagram, we can't see any posts you tag us in. Please share on Facebook or Twitter, too!)
  3. Tag a friend you'd sacrifice to our octopus overlords in your post, along with @octopus_energy

The rules

  • It’s got to have an octopus in it. Naturally. Swap out one of art’s great muses for an eight-legged impostor.
  • Be creative. We want to see into the weirdest and most imaginative nooks, crannies and crevices of your mind.
  • You can take your inspiration from anything, from a classic movie moment...
ET: the Extra Tentacle

ET: the Extra Tentacle a famous scene from art history, whether it’s a painting, a sculpture, a photograph, etc.

  • You can recreate it however you want. Really, the world's your oyster. Paint something, draw something. Do it live and send us a snap, or if you’re handy on Photoshop, do it digitally...
The Persistence of Energy

The Persistence of Energy

  • We're serious about the name. Extra points for bold and audacious pun use.

  • Submissions are open now. Deadline Wednesday 14 November.
