2017 Call For Submissions: 38th DIFF CAMPAIGN

2017 Call For Submissions: 38th DIFF CAMPAIGN

The Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) is entering its 38th year in 2017 and is looking for a young, inspired new image to represent the festival. The DIFF team is looking at creative ways to represent the festival and expand our reach to attract more attention from the public, media and global film community.
Designers and agencies are invited to pitch for the DIFF 2017 campaign. Pitches should include the following:
* A concept rationale of the visual campaign presented including reference.
* A near-to-complete poster design artwork in your own style. Anything goes (illustrated/photography/hand rendered/vector etc.)
* Present an execution plan that shows possible roll out to:
* A1 Poster and A5, A6 publications
* 30 second moving video/animation promo (concept and treatment only)
* Landscape website banner
* T-shirt design
Some campaign guidelines.
* Our target market is very broad, so the campaign should be something that speaks clearly across cultures, maintaining a local edge while speaking to an International audience in a visual language that is understood by all.
* We are looking for something completely new. Check out the festival archive of posters, and what has come before, and how that legacy can be reinterpreted for today’s audiences.
SUBMIT:
Please submit your design in a PDF file to mthembug@ukzn.ac.za, along with a short written rationale to explain your design. All entries must have the subject line DIFF 2017 Campaign Submission
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 15 FEBRUARY 2017
SELECTION:
– The selected campaign designer will be paid R10 000 for the use of the campaign concept and the handover of the final poster artwork.
– A further R15 000 will be paid for the roll-out of finished artwork for associated elements which include:
* T-Shirt design (front graphic and layout of logos and funders text)
* Adaptation of A1 poster to A6 programme and A5 catalogue
* Adaptation of artwork for pull up banners (various specs)
* Web banners (various specs)
* Creative direction of the 30-second video/animated promo. Depending on the medium chosen, this will inform the means in which it is produced, be it animation or live action. The costs of production of this video will be covered separately, but we are looking for an idea that is simple and cost effective.
