The Official 2016 Oktoberfest Poster has been revealed

Since 1952, the selection of the official Oktoberfest poster is made by a jury, which chooses among invited candidates.
The 24 participants came from art and design schools or have won some prize or award before to qualify for a starting place in the Oktoberfest poster competition.
The jury chooses their favorite, without knowing who designed which poster.

The prizes in 2016

The first runner up was awarded 1250€ this year.
The winner does not only get 2750€, but also the big honor of getting to see his design on approximately 10.000 posters and about 100.000 brochures, published in German, English and Italian language.
Also, since 1978, the winning design gets to be on the official collectors’ mug, a steadily growing series of glass or stone mugs, each showing the official poster design of the respective year.
