NAMI SO Film Fest Poster artwork competition REMINDER

 

NAMI SO Film Fest Poster artwork competition:

As a fun way to involve the artists in our community, the NAMI SO Film Fest Committee wants to invite you to submit two-dimensional art pieces for consideration for the 2020 film fest poster! The winner will get to see their artwork all over Jackson and Josephine counties and will receive special mention in the programs and two tickets to Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s 2020 Season!

This is a great way to show how art is relevant to mental health. The composition should be easy-to-identify, somehow connecting with the theme of mental health, and it should be a positive message of hope, help and recovery. A big ask? Maybe. But so very important!

Bring original artwork submissions for the poster (signed but unframed, as it will need to be scanned if it wins) to the NAMI Library at 140 S. Holly, Medford, Rm

Artwork should reflect your narrative experience – your story of being female. We’re searching for a variety of voices to share triumphs and setbacks that highlight gains made or what is missing in our society in terms of equality between the sexes. What is your story and how is it woven into a struggle for equality over 100 years old that has only definitively delivered the right
