The 2024 Pan African Film and Arts Festival offers your business, agency, or non-profit organization a cost-effective opportunity to create advertising impressions for all of our in-person and virtual attendees. To facilitate your company’s participation, please use this information about our marketing requirements and the process we use to create quality branded sponsorship materials.

Logo File Submission

  • PREFERRED FORMAT: Vector eps file (such as an Adobe Illustrator eps) with all fonts converted to outlines. This file format is preferred because vector-based art can be resized without degrading shape or color.

  • Acceptable in some instances: Raster image file (such as an Adobe Photoshop file). The logo must be a minimum of 5” wide or 5” high (whichever is the larger proportion) at 300 dpi. The image file may be delivered in any of the following formats: psd, tiff, png, or jpeg. Logos extracted from the web (such as gif or png files) are typically low resolution and will not be accepted.

  • Please submit any Logo Usage/Branding Guidelines along with your logos, if required. Care will be taken whenever possible to follow applicable guidelines, including colors, clear space, use of taglines, etc.

  • For online usage, you may also wish to submit a low resolution version of your logo without a tagline or other small type that may become illegible at screen resolution. For Web use, the maximum width allowed for a logo is typically 150 pixels.

  • Full Page (9.25 x 6.25 / Horizontal)
  • Half Page (4.5 x 5.75 / Vertical)
