Graphic-designer wanted!

Graphic -design wanted!

If you're a daring, inventive graphic-designer
If you want to be involved in our festival
We invite you to a POSTER contest for Kinofest.

Send us one or more posters at kinofestival@gmail.com, psd, minimum 2MB, A3 format. The deadline is 15 August 2011. Find the Kinofest logo here.

About the text and other practical details: include in your composition the festival's name ("International Digital Film Festival Kinofest" or "Kinofest - the digital film festival", or simply Kinofest, or any other way you want to play with these), write somewhere the date (27-31 October), and also leave some space for the place/adress of the event (we haven't decided yetJ), and for the partner's logo.

Otherwise, please fill free to do whatever you want – a personal, original poster that express the vision, the mark and signature of an interesting artist would make us very happy. More like an work of art (that lives for it self) than the poster of a festival. Have fun!

Please download, fill and send us the entry form (find below) in order to concider your poster submitted.

The best works will be nominated and published on our web-page after 20th of August, and one of the works will be the official poster of the festival.

If your poster wins, we will repay you: we'll make you/your studio a special presentation at the festival, you'll get promotion on our site, press releases, and all the other ways that are available to us.

Hope we'll work together at Kinofest!
