The 5th INTERNATIONAL REGGAE POSTER CONTEST is pleased to announce the top 100 winners of the 2016 contest.

The IRPC announced the call for submissions on November 1st, 2016, closing on January 31st, 2017. The top three winners were successful in securing the Award for Best-designed Reggae Posters 2016. This year, we received 1270 posters from 748 designers from 75 countries! This extension of the contest’s reach is particularly impressive every year. It confirms the sustained global impact of the IRPC. On the platform of the contest, we will continue to spread our vision of a Reggae Hall of Fame Museum in Kingston, Jamaica. And we collectively affirm support for the campaign to heighten awareness of the distinctive legacy of the Alpha Boys’ School.

The jury panel picked the following winners:

First Place: Julia Egorova, Russia

Second Place: Cortney Benvenuto, USA

Third Place: Simona Galizia, Italy

All 100 posters from the short list are here

The 1st place winner will receive a trip to Jamaica, sponsored by The Montego Bay Jamaica (MBJ) airport in Jamaica and The Spanish Court Hotel; a collection of fonts worth 500€ and gifts offered by VP Records.
The 2nd place winner will receive a Wacom Intuos Art Medium tablet and gifts offered by VP Records.
The 3nd place winner will receive a Wacom Intuos Art Small tablet and gifts offered by VP Records.

Congratulations to all the winners and all the participants! In 2016, we received many outstanding posters. Our only regret is that there can only be 100 winners. All 100 winners will receive an IRPC certificate of participation, and major prizes will be awarded to the top three winners. Big up!

We are also excited to announce that our first exhibition for 2017 will take place in Liverpool, UK.
This exhibition will showcase all the 100 posters from the 2016 collection. More details will be announced soon.
