Louisiana high school students are invited to showcase their creativity by participating in the Art of the Film: Louisiana Film Industry Expo’s “Create Your Own Movie” poster competition. 

Students may conceive of an original movie or create a sequel to an existing movie and present that concept as a movie poster.

The poster size should be 11″ x 17″ in a vertical format, 72 to 100 dpi. Winners will be asked to submit a higher resolution (250 to 300 dpi) image to be printed and displayed at the Expo. 

Posters can be created in any media but must be submitted digitally as a high resolution image via email, poster@northshorecec.org. Included in the submission email should be the student’s name, city, high school, grade and contact information.  

The competition is open to high school students in Louisiana. Prizes for the competition include $250 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third. Poster designs must be submitted via email by January 10. Winners will be announced by January 16 and winning posters will be displayed at the Art of the Film Expo.

In entering this competition, students agree to permit the Northshore Cultural Economy Coalition to use all or part of their submissions for publicity and publication of the work in conjunction with the Art of the Film: Louisiana Film Industry Expo.
