An exciting new contest has been launched by organizers of Kashish 2012, the Mumbai International Queer Film Festival. This year marks the third edition of the festival which will run from 23 May through 27 May in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
“Considering the current legal, social and political climate in India, it is all the more important for us to underline the fact that being LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) is not just about sex, but also about various sensibilities and aspirations that comprise our identities. The poster contest is a way to channelize this expression”, said festival director and film maker Sridhar Rangayan. He added, “The theme for this year is ‘For Everyone’, which means this year’s festival has something to offer for everyone – not just for the LGBT community, but also their families, colleagues and friends. The poster contest, which is open ‘to everyone’, across the world, reflects this spirit.”
Entries will be judged by a panel of artist and designers. The winning poster design will be featured on print and online advertisements, catalog covers, banners, cinema slides and delegate cards.
