We show that local minimizers of functionals of the form
$\int_\{\Omega\} \left[f(Du(x)) + g(x\,,u(x))\right]\,\{\rm d\}x$, $u \in u_0 + W_0^\{1,p\}(\Omega)$,
are locally Lipschitz continuous provided f is a convex function with $p-q$ growth
satisfying a condition of qualified convexity at infinity and g is Lipschitz continuous
in u. As a consequence of this, we obtain an existence result for a related nonconvex
functional.
