Leeds Inspired loves a good poster, our office walls are plastered with event posters, gig posters and screenprints.
In 2014 we commissioned four illustrators to respond to our strapline ‘See What’s Out There’. The artwork was used to create posters and print to tell people about the Leeds Inspired What’s On website in the lead up to the Tour de France Grand Depart.
For 2016 we are teaming up with Leeds International Film Festival
to commission a series of 4 original posters celebrating the 30th Festival (LIFF30), which takes place 3 -17 November 2016. As well as being used to create posters the commissioned artwork may also be used to produce other print and digital materials to promote this special anniversary of LIFF30.
If you're an illustrator or designer who lives or works in Leeds and would like to be considered for this commission please email firstname.lastname@example.org
with a link to your online portfolio of existing work. It’s not essential to send us examples in print, but if you do have some you’d like to share our address is Leeds Inspired, Leeds Town Hall, Leeds LS1 3AD.
Closing date for portfolio submissions - Friday 29th January 2016
The commissioned artists will be decided by a panel including the Leeds Inspired team and Leeds Film. We will let everyone know our decisions by email on Monday 8th Feb 2016. The artwork by the commissioned artists must be completed by Friday 11th March 2016.
The fee for each commissioned artist is £650.
