Hollywood has the Oscars, and now the Charleston International Film Festival is searching for a name for their new branded award. CIFF has teamed up with the College of Charleston’s Department of Studio Art for the award, which will recognize the festival’s most talented participants. Anyone can make a suggestion, organizers just ask that it “screams out Charleston.” May we humbly suggest The Croakies, the Pluff Muds, or the Dolphins Leaping Over the Ravenel Bridge.

Send all your brilliant ideas to nametheaward@charlestoniff.org, and find more info at charlestoniff.org. The winner will get two all-access festival badges to the 2013 festival, scheduled for April 24-28. The contest deadline is Nov. 12 at 5 p.m.
