Locarno Film Festival 2022: International Poster Competition now is over!
Locarno Film Festival, great live event and a meeting point for artists and audiovisual professionals from all over the world, this year has decided to invite international graphic designers, artists and creators to come up with the poster for its 75th edition.
After the success of its first edition, international competition to design the official poster that will represent the 75th edition of the Locarno Film Festival is back!
Every year, the Locarno Film Festival unveils a selection of the best global independent and experimental productions and hosts innovative outlooks and projects, to create previously unseen images together, freely. To strengthen this dialogue, this year the Festival has decided to invite international graphic designers, artists and creators to come up with the poster for the 75th edition, scheduled for 3–13 August, 2022, in Locarno, Switzerland.
This year the celebration will be even more important, as the Locarno Film Festival celebrates its 75th anniversary.
For 75 years the Locarno Film Festival, in addition to being an international stage for independent cinema, has been the scene of exchange and dialogue. It’s a place in which to acquire knowledge, discover, experiment and grow together. A place where sensitivity, visions, perspectives, ideas and desires find the space and time to express themselves, strengthened by the value the Festival holds above all else: freedom. Over the decades, the Locarno Film Festival, in parallel to being a film platform for the independent industry, has grown in its training offer, giving life to concepts and projects such as the Locarno Academy, BaseCamp, Locarno Kids and spring workshops of international renown. The selection will be based on the image’s adherence to the identity of the Locarno Film Festival, as well as its originality and versatility.
➜ The poster must evoke the identity of the leopard of the Locarno Film Festival and the event’s nature as a meeting point for different visions and images
➜ The poster must be original.
➜ The poster need to include the logos of the edition and its main partners, in predetermined positions
The competition is open to everyone: graphic designers, illustrators, designers, photographers, artists, but also creatives and enthusiasts from all over the world and without age limits, who interpret the spirit of the Festival for the graphic concept of the next edition.
The winner, in addition to receiving a cash prize of 5,000 Swiss francs, will see their idea and work at the core of Locarno75 and reproduced on all the materials and merchandising of the event. A further 10 projects deemed worthy according to the selection criteria will receive a general pass for the event. A selection of projects will be exhibited during the 75th edition of the Festival (August 3-13, 2022) in Locarno.
