One of India's most famous fashion designers, Wendell Rodricks, has picked a winner for this years Kashish (Mumbai International Queer Film Festival) poster competition.
The winning design shows five hands creating a star-shape with their fingers around the words 'Towards Change'. It was designed by Mumbai-based graphic designer Prachi Patil-Kotkar.
'The victory sign forming a star is graphic and unforgettable,' said Rodricks.
'It is also interesting that the cliched rainbow flag colors have been totally ignored for an artistic backdrop. I loved it.'
The competition received a record number of entries from professional, student and amateur designers.
Patil-Kotkar, who works as a senior visualizer, illustrator and animator, explained her concept as:
'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 winning design of last year's competition featured a butterfly designed by student S Ayyappa.
Kashish 2013, the fourth annual Mumbai International Queer Film Festival, will be held from 23 to 27 May.
