The Department of Labor and Economic Affairs (RAW) of the City of Munich, in cooperation with the official city portal muenchen.de, has launched the Oktoberfest poster competition online, which has been held since 1952. The jury for the Oktoberfest poster competitions, which has a total of 15 members, consists of nine judges from the advertising and design businesses as well as the RAW and six judges from the city council.
Anyone who uploaded a poster design for the Oktoberfest in accordance with the technical and content specifications was able to take part in the preliminary public voting, which is now held online on muenchen.de. Among them were professional designers as well as dedicated amateurs. The award-winning poster will be seen on the Internet, in social media, on licensed articles and posters. It will also adorn the official series stein, continuing the line of coveted collectible steins that began in 1978.
