Lights, Camera…Paint 2024 Call Out - Artists Brief

Updated: May 24

An artist's call out to submit movie themed art work for an art trail in Worcester City Centre
Lights, Camera...Paint 24, Movie Mashup - An art competition

The Brief: Worcester Film Festival x Artists Clubhouse film themed art trail is back, and this year, we want to see your movie mashups!

‘Lights, Camera…Paint’ is an art competition, open to all artistic levels, to create a piece of artwork that is inspired by your favourite film/TV. This year we are introducing the theme ‘Movie Mashups’, so get creative and lets see which worlds collide, characters meet or stories intertwine!

All artwork should be designed square and once selected will be placed in to a movie poster style template, created by Artists Clubhouse and Worcester Film Festival.

20 selected entrants will be chosen to have their artwork displayed in shop windows across the city centre of Worcester in the month run up and during the Film Festival (25th-28th September), along with 5 posters created by local charities/organisations and/or artists that practise with sustainable materials. If you are an artist who works with sustainable materials please let us know in your application.

3 Artists will be shortlisted and receive full access passes to the Film Festival (excluding the Gala) alongside other great prizes (to be announced)! A winner will then be selected from the 3 to be presented with a certificate and prize at the launch event.

All selected work will also be exhibited at the launch event for the festival giving all parties including local organisations, funders and the press a chance to get an up close look.

The winners will be chosen by members of the Worcester Film Festival committee along side Artists Clubhouse after the closing date. All chosen artwork will get featured on Artists Clubhouse social media pages and website.

You can find out more about the film festival at

Artwork Info For Entry:

  • Your artwork needs to be a SQUARE design.

  • We want to be able to show all artwork selected so make sure the final piece is PG friendly as it will be seen by people of all ages, the film/TV shows that inspire your work however, do not need to be PG.
