Voting for HOW’s 5th Poster Design Awards Now Open

We’re excited to announce that the HOW Poster Design Awards is now open for the Reader’s Choice voting! That is, you get to vote for your favorite of the 10 top winning poster designs to choose the poster that should be awarded the title Best in Show. We can’t wait to see which poster you choose to come out on top.

And let’s be real: These top 10 are pretty doggone stellar. With different styles and moods, they’ll give you a much needed break from your work. The top 10 posters (pictured below–be sure to read more about them on the voting page) include gig and self-promotional pieces and posters that are meant to raise awareness for particular causes.

We’d also like to give a big THANK you to everyone who entered. You’re quite the talented bunch! Which made narrowing down the top 10 a difficult challenge for HOW’s judge, John R. Foster. Foster is a weekly feature writer for Design Observer, graphic designer, art collector, art curator and former design educator (he lives and breathes design and art). This seasoned pro thought that the entries overall were very strong and was impressed with all the different concepts, approaches and styles he came across.

Voting will close at 11:50 pm EST on Monday, January 27. Remember: You can cast your ballot daily, so you’ll want to be sure to return every day to get the poster you think deserves the biggest kudos into the top spot.
