Want to design a film's poster? Then this is your chance

Independent Prodction Life Just Is Launches International Poster Design Competition
Last week the independent feature film Life Just Is,, launched a global competition that gives aspiring designers and creative students the rare opportunity to design the lead poster for the film. The competition was launched via the film’s official website, social media sites and at 25 selected British universities. The contest will see selected designs featured on social media sites for Life Just Is: Blog, Website and Facebook. This will be followed by a two-week period in which fans will be able to vote on Facebook for their favorite poster, in order to select a shortlist of three posters. Meanwhile, a panel of industry experts will also select a shortlist of three posters. The Life Just Is Judges will select the winning poster from the shortlisted entries. This poster will be used for marketing the film and potentially for the DVD cover.

To view full details of competition, and the entry form, you can download it here (word document). The debut feature from award-winning writer/director Alex Barrett tells the story of a group of university graduates who are having trouble making the move into adult life. The film is being produced by Tom Stuart and executive produced by Christine Hartland.

Further assisting the competition entrants, during the shoot and the completion of the project the crew posted regular updates on their website and social media profiles (see below for details). These updates focused on the making of the film during the shoot and in time will expand to include a discussion of the film's many themes.

Full Project Synopsis: Pete, Tom, Claire and Jay are university graduates having trouble making the move into adult life. Beneath the hanging out and the daily routines simmers Pete’s desire to find a spiritual answer to life’s meaning, Jay’s desperate need not to get hurt again, and Tom and Claire’s ever increasing mutual attraction. A thoughtful character drama, Life Just Is is a film about love, death, and, most importantly of all, life itself.
The competition closes midnight on 6th February 2011. 
You have to be a student or a recent graduate to take part in the competition.
A full set of rules can be found in the competition form.
