FilmG Poster Competition

Win a day at a photoshoot with the FilmG team!

To mark the 10th year of FilmG, we’re running a special competition for High School Pupils. The unveiling of our FilmG posters has become a regular part of the calendar for Gaelic speakers far and wide and this year we want to invite one lucky person to help us creat one of our iconic images. We’re looking for a cool and creative idea which we can turn into one of our posters.

The winner will get to come and work alongside the team as we turn their idea into the real thing. They’ll get to be involved in all aspects of the process – styling, make-up, locations, photography and learn some photoshop skills too! Not only will this be an introduction to the creative industries, but lots of fun too!

If you’re interested in film, art, design, or anything creative, be sure to enter! If you haven’t a clue where to start, check out this guide from our designer Steve:

  1. Have a look at FilmG posters from years gone by and classic movie posters you think are cool.
  2. Think of a character, or characters, who you’d like to feature in your poster. Are they funny, daft, scary, athletic, and so on?
  3. Think of your setting. Where will they be?
  4. Start work on your idea! We start with a pencil sketch but you can use any technique you like – pencil, pen, paint, collage, Serif or Photoshop.
  5. Write a sentence or two about the story behind your picture.
  6. Add your name, age and a contact number.
  7. Send it to us in the post to the address below or via email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
