SQIFF 2019 takes place 2nd to 6th October in Glasgow and we are offering a £1000 commission for someone to create the artwork (main image) to appear on the front of our brochure and our posters this year.
To be eligible you must be based in Scotland and have lived experience of LGBTQIA+ issues. Send your pitches to helen[at]sqiff.org outlining your idea and a little bit about your background as an artist. You don’t necessarily need to have lots of experience. We are looking for originality and ideas that fit SQIFF’s image and ethos. Former artists commissioned to create our artwork include Asten Holmes-Elliott, Garry Mac, Hannah Moitt, and Susie McConnell (Firebrat).
The deadline for sending your pitch is Friday 24th May at 5pm. The chosen commission will then have a completion deadline of Monday 5th July.
If you have any questions at all about the commission or we can make it more accessible for you to apply, please get in touch via helen[at]sqiff.org 0r text or phone Helen between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday on (+44)7735 273 245. We look forward to seeing your ideas!
