2019 San Diego Latino Film Festival International Poster Competition

Media Arts Center San Diego’s San Diego Latino Film Festival (SDLLF) is now accepting submissions for the International Poster Competition of its 26th edition, to take place from 14–24 March, 2019.

Submit an iconic design that captures the essence of our annual celebration of Latino film, music, and art for a chance to be the face of the festival.

The Top Prize is $1,000 and promotional exposure in all festival related marketing materials. Ten (10) finalists will be rewarded with two tickets to the 26th San Diego Latino Film Festival and limited promotional exposure.

Computer graphics, as well as paintings, may be used to compose the design.

A panel of distinguished judges (composed of artists, graphic designers, marketing professionals and art educators) will select the winning poster according to the following criteria:

  1. Unique, positive, and non-stereotypical representation of Latino Culture
  2. Clarity and originality of message
  3. Impact, memorability, and appeal to general audiences
  4. Versatility for application on various mediums
  5. Design (type, color, composition, craft)

The San Diego Latino Film Festival International Poster Competition is open to individuals, teams and design firms from around the world.

SDLFF was born out of a desire to take a stand against the status-quo of cinema, to challenge the reigning and ever-present stereotypes about the Latino experience in movies, and to give Latino filmmakers the power of telling and sharing their stories, first-hand, about what it means to be Latino.

The submitted poster designs should celebrate the core values of the Festival and the passion for Latino culture.
