“The victory sign forming a star is graphic and unforgettable. It is also interesting that the clichéd rainbow flag colours have been totally ignored for an artistic backdrop. I loved it,” said fashion designer Wendell Rodricks who judged the contest.
Prachi graduated from Sophia Polytechnic and works as a senior visualizer illustrator and animator.
Explaining the concept behind the poster, she said that the backdrop was meant to reflect the “Colourful waves, which represent a churning of dreams in the ocean of life. The five “victory signs” reflect diversity – we may come from different places, have different languages, individualities, dreams and desires, but when we come together, we change and become a thing of beauty like the star.”
The winner of the poster contest will receive a KASHISH trophy and a gift hamper. The winning design will also be featured on catalogue cover, print and online advertisements, banners, cinema slides and delegate cards.
The 4th edition of KASHISH 2013 will be held between May 22-26 in Mumbai at a multiplex and Alliance Française de Bombay. KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival is the first and only queer film festival in India to be held in a mainstream theatre and to receive clearance from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
