Every year, a panel of judges select the winning poster for the annual Chicago Latino Film Festival.
The selected poster becomes the face of the Festival, as it will be on the cover of half-a-million newsprint programs, invitations, program books, electronic ads, t-shirts and more.
36th CLFF POSTER CONTEST WINNER
Yağmur Genç is a freelance graphic designer and a student of Visual Communication Design at Medipol University in Istanbul. Last year she won the Bronze Prize in the Next Generation category of Nikon’s annual photo contest for her image titled “Lonely Girl,” and third prize in Contrado’s bottle design contest.
Designed as an isolated frame from a film strip, Genç’s colorfully dreamlike poster depicts a woman staring upwards towards an eye, surrounded by flowers and vegetation. “Every movie is actually a journey. All the films we watch introduce us to different worlds and perspectives. In all the movies I have watched since my childhood, I thought that the audience was actually a part of the movie. I wanted to show this idea in my design. The female figure represents the audience and the eye the connection between the audience and the movie. I also aimed to achieve a different perspective by using warm and cold tones together. The flowers on the edge of the banner reflect the multi-color of Latin American culture,” explained Genç.
