Four free student design contests and one cheap one!

Being a graphic design student looking for work right now is not an all too uplifting thought. So. I've collected some design competitions that are going on right now, all (but one) free to enter!

Dorset Cereals short film
The Brief: Make a short film that sums up our belief: ‘simple, but then the best things in life usually are’. We are looking for innovative storytelling and all formats are considered including mobile phones. Once you’ve made your video and uploaded it here on our website, it’s over to the great British public (and your friends and family) to vote for their favourites.
Entry fee: Free!
Prize: £5000 and a week’s work experience at a top film production company, and the two runners up will receive £2000 each.
Deadline: February 26th 2010

Brief: Participants are asked to visually interpret the word “Brainstorm” using any medium available that won’t get you arrested (paint, ink, graphite, video, computer, macaroni, a bedazzler, etc). Please submit your work (or photographs of your work) in jpg, gif or png format to: adesignmafia@gmail.com(or send links to videos when appropriate). Please try and keep the images at 500px maximum and under 1mb. *UPDATE* We would like to limit the number of entries per person to two (2).
Entry fee: Free!
Prize: The winner gets the opportunity to collaborate with the founders of Brainstorm and A Design Mafia on a limited edition print. Not only will the winner receive the print that they helped create, but the print will also be sold in the Brainstorm online store…but WAIT THERE’S MORE!!! Not only will the winner receive a print, not only will it be sold in the Brainstorm store, but 20% of the proceeds will go to Friends of the Earth (http://www.foe.org) !!! So the proceeds of YOUR print will go to this awesome cause!!
