Chicago Latino Film Festival Poster Competition: Win $1,000

Every year, the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago selects the winning poster for the annual Chicago Latino Film Festival. The deadline is on 14 January 2019.

The 35th Chicago Latino Film Festival (CLFF) is produced every April by the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC), a pan-Latino, nonprofit, multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to developing, promoting and increasing awareness of Latino culture among Latinos and other communities by presenting a wide variety of art forms. The Chicago Latino Film Festival began in 1985 with 14 films projected onto a concrete wall for 500 viewers and has now grown into the ILCC, which was originally founded as Chicago Latino Cinema.

The winning artists will receive $1,000 and the selected poster will become the face of the Festival, as it will be on the cover of newsprint programs, invitations, program books, electronic ads, t-shirts, Festival trailer and more. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, 23 January 2019.
