The annual Adelaide Kids Film Festival is calling on budding young designers to showcase their creative talents and design a poster for the 2015 festival. The competition, currently in its fourth year, is free to enter and open to all students aged 18 years and under from now until Thursday, 30th April.
Submissions must incorporate the Adelaide Kids Film Festival logo and this year’s theme, “Connections”, encouraging young people to tap into their imagination, use their creativity and express their ideas.
The winning design will be announced on May 10th and will be featured both interstate and internationally, with the winner receiving their design block mounted, camera gear, movie tickets, discount vouchers for film courses and VIP tickets to the festival.
Last year’s poster competition received hundreds of entries from across South Australia, but it was Lauren Demasi and Haiyan Wang’s design, that impressed the judges and took out the final prize.
Inspired by the theme ‘We are young, We are free’ the duo, created a design based on their own experiences and perceptions, incorporating their love for the beach and the outdoors.
“I was thrilled to be one of last year’s winners”, said Lauren. “The competition is a great opportunity to showcase your skills and have fun in the process, especially if you have a passion for design and film making”
Festival director Chloe Gardner says the festival is a unique event that supports, harnesses and encourages the creative involvement of youth.
“It is a great opportunity for under 18’s all across Australia and the world to share their creativity and love of design and film with family, friends and the community,” Chloe says.
The Adelaide Kids Film Festival will run from 24 – 30 October 2015 and showcase and nurture the talents of young filmmakers over four days of screenings, workshops and Q&A sessions with industry professionals. Entry in the filmmaking competition is free and entries can be submitted from 1st June till September 25th.
