Our last Winner

The Polish graphic artist Dominika Czerniak-Chojnacka won first place in the 21st Annual Official Chicago Latino Film Festival Poster Contest. The ILCC received 643 submissions for this year’s poster contest from around the world; entries were received from Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico, Poland, Russia and the United States, among other countries.

Dominika Czerniak-Chojnacka graduated from graphic design at the University of Arts in Poznan, Poland and from pedagogics at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland. She currently works as an assistant at the Illustration Studio at the University of Arts in Poznan while studying full-time on the graduate studies art program at Copernicus University; she also has a Master’s Degree in anthropology of culture.

“I created a couple of posters for this competition. But this one is the most intriguing. Vivid yet clear, like it’s dancing, like it’s singing… because ‘a poster must sing!’ like the great polish poster designer, Jan Lenica, once said. And I think this is what I’ve managed to achieve in this one,” said Dominika Czerniak-Chojnacka. “The design came up as a result of searching for a kind of object that is related to Latino culture and yet can be mixed with something from the world of film. And, simultaneously, I really wanted it to be fresh and straight. And a little bit crazy, too.”
