The 52nd Chicago International Film Festival Poster Competition

Publish Date: Feb 24, 2016

Deadline: Apr 01, 2016

Design must reflect the theme “BECAUSE EVERYBODY LOVES MOVIES”.

Cinema/Chicago is hosting its annual competition to design the unique poster which will promote the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival, running Oct 13-27, 2016. All submissions must be sent through online submission form.

Entry Fee

Submission fee is $25/entry; entrants may submit as many times as they like, but each file submitted counts as a single entry.


All entries must be submitted by April 1, 2016 at 11:59pm CST. Late entries will not be accepted.

Judging & Selection

Entries will be judged by marketing and design professionals. Entries will be evaluated based on appeal, theme-inclusion, content, and marketability. If your image is selected, we will need the full art in its original file (in layers or vectors) and the font that was used.


The winning designer will receive a $2,500 cash prize and will be notified via email. Entrants are responsible for providing valid contact information and for checking their respective email accounts for notifications regarding the International Poster Competition. If a potential winner does not respond within five (5) calendar days of the first notification attempt – or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable – the potential winner will forfeit his/her prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the remaining eligible entries.
