• Winners announced

(PROVIDENCE, RI, March 2, 2006.) The Rhode Island International Film Festival™ needs a new visual image that can be used on a poster and related collateral material to celebrate its 10th Anniversary Year. The Festival, is calling on local students and artists for help in developing a creative and attractive design that will visually describe Rhode Island's award-winning film festival.

The Rhode Island International Film Festival™, (RIIFF) will take place August 8-13, 2006. In its brief lifespan, the Festival has become a leading juried competition showcase for international independent filmmakers and their work. It was recently cited by TravelSmart Magazine as one of the Top 12 Film Festivals in the United States.

In 2002, RIIFF was notified by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that it had elected to recognize the Rhode Island International Film Festival as a qualifying festival for the Short Films category for the Annual Academy Awards. With more than 2,000 film festivals worldwide, only 47 have this recognition. RIIFF is also the only film festival in the United States to have an affiliation with the Grammy Awards.

The winning designer will win two all-access VIP passes to this year's festival, receive international exposure of their work, and portfolio samples.

Poster Requirements:
1. Display the Rhode Island International Film Festival.
2. Highlight the Festival’s 10th Anniversary.
3. Needs to illustrate that it is about film/movies.
4. Should be "eye catching" and informative. It is essentially a marketing tool in addition to being art.

The Festival is looking for a simple graphic design that says, "Film."

Please submit a legal size example of your poster idea by June 1st (postmark date) to:

Attn: Design Committee
268 Broadway
Providence, RI 02903
