-- The Blue Water Film Festival (BWFF) will be presenting its new look in the New Year. The festival's fourth annual Art Identity Contest launches today.
The contest is a call to artists of all ages throughout the state of Michigan and Lambton County, Ontario to design the image that will represent the 2013 Blue Water Film Festival. The contest's criterion is to include the artist's original interpretation of the Blue Water Bridge.
Previous winners include Michigan residents Michael Tyler of Marine City, Alex Gasparetto of St. Clair and Chase Duncan of Port Huron. "This has become an exciting contest that connects the festival to the local artist and design community," said BWFF Executive Director Jeremy Stemen. "We've been especially impressed with entries we receive from local students. This is an opportunity for the winner to have their artwork presented to a large audience as the design is shown throughout the year to promote the festival."
The winner - announced March 8, 2013 - will be the official image of the 2013 festival and appear on the cover of the BWFF official program guide as well as other promotional material.

The festival is also showcasing the documentary “Dirty Energy” on January 19th, 2013.
The film begins shortly after the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill and follows the residents of the area through the next several months. The Michigan director Bryan Hopkins and two residents of the Gulf region will be in attendance of the event.
