Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema invites Kew Gardens residents, business owners and employees of all ages to submit their Poster and Logo designs!

For it’s inaugural year, Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema is getting the community involved by hosting a poster competition! Anyone who resides or works in Kew Gardens is eligible to design a festival poster or logo any way they see fit. Your designs must include ‘Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema’ or its acronym – ‘KGFC Film Fest’ prominently displayed. There are no other rules or restrictions, so be creative, innovative and imaginative! The festival organizers will choose THREE logo designs and ONE poster design from all entries received. The winning POSTER design will be introduced as the official festival poster and be prominently displayed on signage, as well as being the cover of the festival program (over 5,000 prints), while the three winning LOGO designs will be printed onto official festival t-shirts and merchandise to be sold and distributed throughout the 10 day event. As a non-profit organization, the festival organizers feel this is a wonderful opportunity for residents and locals to further involve themselves in what is sure to be a monumental event for the neighborhood.
