CALLING ALL GRAPHIC ARTISTS


This is one of our favourite times of the SIFF season. Poster Time!  We are starting early and announcing the winner early this year because we really want to have a good chance to show off your artistic skills.


RULES

  1. A4 page size or use 831x1169 dimensions with a 300 dpi resolution for best quality
  2. The poster must state -  September 15th - 20th
  3. Somewhere on the poster there must be an indication that it is our 10th season. You can use any font of your choice or you can use the graphics that we have added to our assets page HERE under 10th season logo. 
  4. it must say Hosted by Simatography and include our website url. The word Simatography should be our official word logo also found on our assets page HERE
  5. It must include the word SIFF or one of the SIFF logos - only new logos please, and if using just the word SIFF then use the official wording. All of these images are available for download on our assets page HERE
  6. Share your poster here, but be sure to put it into the GALLERY HERE first. Only posters that are in the gallery will be eligible for the voting by our fans. (if you post in the gallery you can then click on your image, save image location, and use that url to post your pic here)
  7. EA branding (EA logo mainly) should not be used in your posters. Simatography and SIFF are not affiliated with Electronic Arts, so we can't use their branding within our festival posters.


DEADLINE:  Friday July 25th


Winners will be announced August 1st in our BIG FAT awesome commemorative 10th anniversary issue of SIFF Buzz


Ready, set, go!

RAISES HAND. I HAVE A QUESTION!! *giggles*

In the past the rules have stated we are allowed up to and no more than 5 posters each. Is that rule still in effect?

I was trying to wait till we get some entries, but I'll just start this challenge with something simple and minimalistic. ;)
Thanks to Georga by the way, who uploaded it to the Gallery because I forgot to rename it and Webs was not accepting the file. XD

OMG, awesomeness already. I will start sharing these images when I get home from work.

I don't recall a specific rule about how many, but I think it would be fair to calm some of you down *cough cough* and set a 5 maximum limit.
