Official posterThe official Oktoberfest poster
Already at the beginning of the year, the new "Wiesnplakat" will be presented. The motif is new every year and the design is one year long the "face" (campaign) for the famous folk festival in Munich. We also find the poster-design on all kinds of brochures as well as on the (official) souvenirs of the organizer.
The new design comes from a graphic artist duo of two young Bavarian girls. The two students "Sarah Eigenseher" and "Hanna Hodzic" created the winning draught for the poster competition. The two 21-year-old studs study design at the "Technical College of Nuremberg" with focus on graphic design, typography, event design and illustration.
During the last years the poster motif has been determined in a "closed competition". This means - the only way to participate was, to get an invitation from the city of Munich. So the organizers made some changes. First of all, the competition was "opened" for everyone. This meant everyone had the opportunity to submit their designs for the new Oktoberfestplakat. This was the first opening since 1999.
Also new was, that the festival-fans can vote for their favorites. Therefore all the poster designs were shown on the web for a "Online Voting". At the end of the contest the "Top 30" have been determined on the basis of the user ratings (number of likes). From this preselection, a jury selects the final winners. More about the competition...
