The Art Pages Movie Poster Design Contest
Art Pages, a new art periodical launching during Art Basel Miami beach, is sponsoring two contests in conjunction with Verge: Light Assembly Miami. Our first is the Verge / LA movie poster contest. In order to participate, entries must incorporate the following: a) the Verge, Light Assembly and Art Pages logos; b) Event dates (Dec. 6-9, 2012); website URLs ( and And that’s it! Our ideal submissions will integrate the visual art and cinematic aspects of the events, and reimagine the possibilities of cinema as a form of visual culture from a unique and distinct artistic perspective. Poster design entries are $15 if submitted by August 15.

Art Pages will produce 2,000 limited-edition posters of the winning design to be distributed throughout Miami in advance of and during the event, and featured on the inside cover in full color of the premier edition of Art Pages. Four runners-up will also be featured in full-page, four-color spreads in Art Pages.

The Art Pages Screenplay / Teleplay Contest
Our second contest is the Art Pages Screenplay / Teleplay Contest. It has never been more clear the necessity of writers to the originality and inventiveness of the best work produced in film, television, and visual art. This rising necessity of writing has transformed the expectation of artists across the disciplines. We are looking for writing that not only breaks the mold of these forms, but that at its best treats language as a material no different from celluloid or paint. This is an opportunity to invent the future of these artistic disciplines with an heretofore unprecedented reach. We will feature one winner from both the screenplay and teleplay categories in full in the print edition of Art Pages. Two runners-up from each category will be featured on the Art Pages website, and their biographies and a capsule description of their writing printed in a prominent sidebar showcase. Screenplay and teleplay entries are $15 if submitted by August 15. Please submit your screenplay or teleplay as either a .DOC or .PDF file.

With all teleplay submissions, supplementary written materials may also be included but are not required. These could include up to five pages of concept, character analysis, and future episode mini-synopsis. Attach these to the end of the script in your file.
