Poster House (NY) and The Library of Congress, Call for Submissions: Poster Animation Competition
Deadline: December 31st, 2018
From their call: Poster House is joining forces with The Library of Congress to host an animation competition through the month of December, asking for modern takes on historical designs.
After sifting through thousands of posters in the Library’s collection, Poster House selected 31 images that speak of ages past, are free of any copyright issues, and are ready to party. All you need to do is visit the Library of Congress online to download a high res version of the file, crop it as you see fit, and lend your creative touch by animating it in a unique, fun, and compelling way.
Because backstories can only help make your designs richer, we’ve asked our curator to share a few fun facts about each poster. Once you’ve chosen your favorite, see our rules and regulations at the bottom of this post, and get crackin! Your work could be featured in the museum’s display window, and you could win a free membership to Poster House that gives you early access before opening day.
Eligibility: Open to students, professionals, and amateurs alike. Participants will have access to free high-res images of posters via the Library’s “Free To Use and Reuse” collection that they can re-imagine as animations, bringing new life to these poignant historical vignettes.
