The Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival is seeking local artists from the LGBTQ+ communities to develop the brand of the 14th annual festival, scheduled for September 2022. The final art design will be used as the source for our official theatrical poster artwork, marketing and promotion, and the festival’s official program.
The selected artist will be compensated for their work, receive royalties on merchandise sales, and be provided complimentary festival tickets. The look and feel of the poster will be inspired by your creative vision and should celebrate the lived experience of the LGBTQ+ communities and the cinema experience. Artists of all mediums are invited to participate.
All members of the LGBTQ+ communities are encouraged to apply. As part of our mission to create an equitable world for artists, artists from the Two-Spirit, BIPOC, or Trans communities will be given special consideration.
