oktoberfest 2019 poster selected

usual procedure as every year. the good people of munich narrow the poster selection down to a top 30, and then some learned “judges” decide a winner to go on the posters, maß, tshirts – actually everything! tbh its not a bad design competition to win

Its pretty abstract and would make some nice modern gift wrap – but not sure its poster material for the wiesn.

the oktoberfest poster 2018 selected

while I’ve been busy on a big project at work – the managed to announce the oktoberfest poster for 2018

Nice poster highlighting the blue skies bavaria is known for – but I gotta say I prefer third place.

the oktoberfest poster 2017

each year the oktoberfest poster is announced and people (including me) criticise the choice of the “experts”. this year the muenchen town council have decided to allow the general public (i.e me and you) to help with the deselection process.

people can vote on their website and it will help take the choice down from 49 posters to the top 30. a jury of experts will then make the final choice.  using the general public to narrow down from 49 to 30 is really not that much of an influence on the outcome – but I guess its a start.

the final winner is announced on feb 1st.

that picture of me

if you are wondering who captured that picture of me at the top of the blog – thanks go out to Celticon Photography based in Munich.

Roger caught me while I dropping off Stadtkapelle Germering for the start of the Trachten- und Schützenzug during Oktoberfest 2015. (hey Phil – look at the camera before the police move our bus on).

Roger takes great pics – the majority of my facebook profile shots come via him.
