with a total of 900 posters to consider, the final list took five months for TOPAFF to compile. the team included both canceled and realized festivals and awarded the best visuals according to four criteria: originality, idea and meaning, graphic performance, visual impact (layout, space, typography, etc.). above all, they considered the illustrations and not the communication strategy of the posters.

02 – festival maintenant

‘it is a passionate opinion, referenced, worked… but it remains an opinion. like all awards, it is subjective and open to criticism. the most important is the highlighting of works, creations, authors. the classification allows disagreement, reflection, opinion and therefore debate. talking about it means bringing these illustrators, graphic designers, painters, photographers, designers, and artists into existence’,  says TOPAFF. you can check out the full top 100 list on konbini here
