Cash prize offered to best design for 2016 Africa in Motion film festival!
Africa in Motion (AiM) are inviting designers, professional and amateur from the African continent to submit design entries for AiM’s 2016 film festival (28 October – 6 November) cover design campaign. We welcome designs across all disciplines (illustration/graphic design/photography/hand rendered/vector etc).
Our festival theme for 2016 is ‘Time’, which looks to explore the past, present and future of Africa, looking at different eras of African history including slavery, colonisation, globalisation and future concepts of Africa. This theme also looks at cultural notions of time including a focus on Swahili time, the Amharic calendar, and the place of tradition in a modern world. By looking at different political, cultural and social epochs we aim to show how Africa has never been a place bound in time separated from the rest of the world but has always been influenced and connected by global movements. Our programme will include retrospectives of the past and explorations of the present and the future of Africa, including contemporary and classic fiction features, short films, documentaries, experimental work and animation.
AiM is looking for creative designs that will represent the festival and the festival theme- Time, to expand our reach to attract more attention from the public, media and global film community. AiM’s target market is very broad, so designs should be something that speaks across cultures, using a visual language that is understood by all. We are looking for something visually engaging that works together with our festival theme and takes inspiration from traditional and modern designs from the African continent. Designs should be adaptable so that they can be used for all of AiM’s marketing materials, including our 2016 festival website, social media platforms, posters, roller banners, postcards, flyers, book bags, and t-shirts.
Please submit your design in a PDF file (less than 3mb) to: firstname.lastname@example.org along with a completed Cover Design Competition Entry Form: Cover-Design-Competition-Entry-Form-AiM-2016.doc
The selected design will receive a prize of £500.00
Deadline for submissions is Friday 29 July 2016
