As the Little Wing community grows, we want to expand our reach across across the creative industries; wherever there’s a need for more sustainable opportunities for young people we want to find a foothold. We’re back again bringing designers in on the festival action with our second poster competition looking for students, graduates, and new designers to create the official festival poster for Little Wing Film Festival 2019.
The brief is open – we want our designers to show us their interpretation of the Little Wing ethos; a new film festival, by young people, for young people, looking to make a change in the industry through leading by example. Thanks to partners who share our vision in championing young artists, we have over £2000 of cash and prizes to give away to our top 3 designs. Not only this, but every eligible submission to the competition this year will receive a 1-month subscription to Alight Motion and 6-month subscriptions for our short-listed designs.

prizes, to be honest nothing makes me more happy than getting licenses to really good
software which I wouldn't be able to buy by myself." - Anastazja S
