Grand Cinema 2012 Film Festival Poster Contest

31 May

Here’s your chance to win awesome prizes, a fistful of dollars – and bragging rights for the 2012 Grand Cinema Film Festival poster! Create the winning poster and your art could be seen plastered all over town. The Grand, a non-profit theater, is putting out a call to artists to find the most original design to represent its filmfest. Last year, the contest drew entries from all over the world! Application deadline is Friday, July 6, 2012 (see guidelines below). All entries will be displayed at the theater, and all participating artists will receive two (2) complimentary movie passes to the Grand.

The creator of the winning poster will receive a cash prize of $350, and two (2) festival passes to the Tacoma Film Festival. The winning artist will be asked to assist in creating print ads and promo materials featuring the artwork. Check out this link to see last year’s winning design.

Poster dimensions are 11″ x 17″. Design considerations are left pretty much up to you, but this information must be included:

2012 Tacoma Film Festival
October 4-11, 2012

In addition, there must be blank space left at the bottom (or somewhere else within the design) for sponsor logos. Space should be allotted for a minimum of 10 logos. Please submit entries via electronic format – .pdf or .jpg preferred – and be sure the artwork is printer-ready as the Grand will be printing all the entries and showcasing them at the theater. Please remember space for those sponsor logos!

Send entries to: Good luck!
