“Wynonna Earp is … coming back to Syfy for season 4. All thanks to the works you guys did – fighting for it, yelling for it, polite no chilling for it, buying billboards for it, the whole shebang. And to thank you guys, what Syfy is going to do is they have partnered with [content creation platform] Tongal, and we’re gonna run a contest to choose some Earper fan art to be the season 4 official poster,” said showrunner Emily Andras in a video, announcing #WeArtWynonna contest.
Andras will be the one to select the winner, who will also receive a cash prize of $1,000, in addition to having their fan art featured across all platforms. There will also be five runners-up, who will receive $100 each and may see their works featured on Syfy’s social media channels.
“Syfy knows that fans have special powers too. With this partnership, they’re giving fans the opportunity to use their passion and creativity to engage with one of their favorite shows in a big way. Tongal is all about giving creators the opportunity to do what they love, so we’re excited to be powering this experience for the fans and giving them a creative outlet while at home,” said Tongal CEO and co-founder James DeJulio said in a statement.
This isn’t the first time Tongal has partnered with Syfy. According to E! News, the content creation platform already teamed up with the network to for a “by the fans, for the fans” content twice before.
The 12-episode season 4 of Wynonna Earp was originally scheduled to premiere this summer, but after production on the new season was shut down in March due to COVID-19, its release date will likely be pushed back.
