The deadline is looming for first-ever Full Frame Film Fest poster design contest. One design will be chosen by jurors to be printed in a limited edition run to be sold at the festival. The winning designer will receive a special “Artist” Priority Pass (a $500 value) for the 2010 festival as well as hotel accommodations in Durham for the duration of the festival.

The jury will consist of the Triangle’s own Dave Wofford from Horse & Buggy Press, and Gary Hustwit, director of Objectified and Helvetica (we sat down with him at last year’s festival to talk about his film Objectified).

For full details on the contest and how to enter, email fullframeposter@gmail.com. They will send you a .pdf with all the requirements and specs. Deadline for entry is Monday, February 15th with the winner announced by the end of the month.

As means of inspiration, Full Frame has listed a few likes and dislikes to help jump start your thinking.

    WHAT??? I have to avoid David Caruso AND
    Vampires??????????????????

    I’ll never be able to create a work of art again. I’m crushed.


    How about Abe Vigoda and Ron Jeremy? Are they unwelcome as well? If so, I may as well kill myself…...........life will not be worth living…................

    For serious designers, isn’t this kind of spec work considered unethical?

    I don’t really agree. This kind of “spec” work, a competition, is pretty prevalent in the design world. You enter knowing that you might not win. It’s all in good fun. Even AIGA has design contests. For example, http://nebraska.aiga.org/vday

    What? An artistic genius such as myself isn’t “serious”? Just wait till I get my Abe Vigoda poster in contention.
