Civic Poster Competition Winners

This was our only entry for Cider With Rosie so kind of won by default although it is an excellent design.

Waiting for Godot was a really close call as they were all incredible. They all got the main stylistic elements of the play in as well as being very pleasing to look at. This one won because of its pleasing yet simple style.

All of the posters entered by James showed not only a grasp of theatrical poster design but also a lot of knowledge about the plays themselves. The inclusion of a synopsis within the image was something that we really liked.

We loved the idea behind this. It’s simple but striking.

Again this was a close call but we liked the “Pink Panther” style character.

Both posters by Rory were excellent and set the bar pretty high right from the beginning. This gets across the main aspects of the play whilst remaining clean and pleasing to look at.

Thank you again to everyone who entered the competition and took the time to put such a lot of effort into making something. They were all excellent and none were not worthy of winning. It’s been fantastic to meet and interact with such talented people.

Posters are now up in the Pomegranate. As previously mentioned we wanted to make sure all were seen so the runners up are also being displayed but only for a limited run.

Winners will be contacted by e-mail in the next couple of days with information on how to collect their tickets.

The Civic Competition is now closed.

Thanks to everyone who entered. The quality has been outstanding and it’s been great to see such talent!

The winners will be posted in Tumblr on Friday night and the exhibition will be open to the public in the theatre bar on Monday.
