    Are you a creative illustrator or graphic designer? Do you have an itch to draw all day long? Do you dream of rebranding some of the world’s most recognised brands? If this sounds like you then we want to get to know you! For the first time ever, we’d like to offer you the chance to design the main identity image for the Bradford International Film Festival.

    Now in its 19th year, Bradford International Film Festival (BIFF), in partnership with Virgin Media, remains one of the most anticipated events in the UK film calendar. In its 18 editions to date, BIFF has presented hundreds of new and classic films, and included premieres, definitive retrospectives, and an array of special guests. In the past we’ve had the festival identity in all forms; photographic, graphic and illustrated.

    This year we want to throw it over to you and ask you to come up with a brand new identity. Last year we asked illustrator MutantHands to create the ident and he accepted the challenge and did us proud but now we must say goodbye to the 2012 identity and look forward to BIFF 2013 and a sparkling new identity which could be designed by you.

    For the initial stage of the competition, please supply us with a downscaled version of your artwork (max 10MB in size for email). If your submission is shortlisted, you will be then required to submit your artwork at high resolution (suitable for print and large graphics). Entries should be of sufficient quality to be judged and may include a brief description to explain the approach. Entrants may enter up to two designs.

    There is no entry fee.


    This competition is open to students or recent graduates of any year of an Art or Design course at HND or degree level and to MA students. People with up to 3 years industry experience are also eligible to enter.


    The winner will be awarded £500 (approx. 800 USD) to realise their design and will work with the National Media Museum’s Design Studio to ensure the final design meets our practical requirements.
