The South by South West film festival presents an award every year to the designer behind these amazing posters, and I do believe this is the only festival who presents an award for Excellence in Poster designer, Yay South by South West! I adore this poster designed by Martim Vian & Zeke Hawkins which won the speical jury award.
These were just some of my own personal favorites that were at the festival. You can see all the posters on the SXSW flickr page here.
Designers: Jonathan Sandridge / Rolando G. Murillo / no name / Petra Epperlein
