Who can enter?
Any photographers, graphic artists, painters, or illustrators with a passion for the movies and creative flair for the promotional can enter by creating works that are posters for films submitted into the UWA MachinimUWA V Challenge.  And yes, artists who created videos that are submitted into the machinima contest are also permitted to submit posters for their own films!

How to enter:

  1. To see the film submissions to date, go to www.aviewtv.com, browse the MachinimUWA V film gallery and choose from any of the submitted videos. Note that this year's film theme is "Seek Wisdom".

Think about great poster ideas!

What Happens Next?
