SXSW has just announced the addition of a truly awesome new award as part of their SXSW Film Design Awards. Starting with the 2010 event, the “Excellence in Title Design” Award will be featured as a special contest to “discover the best in contemporary Title Sequence design.”
Award eligibility is open internationally to all Title Sequences that are part of a completed film finished in 2009 or later. Entrants have until December 11 to submit their sequences. Finalists will be announced in February of 2010. The finalists will be featured in their own screening during SXSW. Judging will consist of an expert panel of judges, and there will also be an Audience Award available for the public’s favorite.
For more information about entering this portion of the competition, check out HERE on the SXSW site.
