This will be abit tricky, because there are so fucking much of them :D

 

Ok i overflew the Poster Topic and posting the ones that cought my eye also the ones which managers are inactive it seems. I posting them here, but kinda feels like a wasted award for an not playing manager. Maybe we can make a vote before hand about it, if the inactive managers should be involved in the awards.

Honestly there was a boatload of great posters this year, it's hard to pick one or just a few.

 

 

One more:

I have a few different ones as there were some crazy good posters this year, and I might still have missed some great ones. 

 

1448980705gRQHzO2.jpg   :  Clean, the colors, the look, not animated as in general I am not a huge fan of those => Brilliant poster!

 

7fWZtha.jpg  Awesome poster, reminds me of the best poster ever that Roger Kint made one or two years ago. 

 

1435258565Ascension332.png  Probably my favorite poster. I can't quit explain why, but it looks so brilliantly perfect and clean that it's damn amazing!! NO idea who made this one, but crazy good!

And this. This is a belter.

 

A few of these other nominations are kind of either non-edited basic text on an unedited picture, so if you like it, it's the picture you like not the poster. But this one here is extremely basic, as is the other one I nominated, but they are clean as you like and involve some proper branding, colour schemes and intelligent placement.

^That being an example of what I'm talking about. That's a stock background, a few cut avatars, block text which just have an outer glow and the logo and belt stuck on. There's no synthesis or actual editing skills.

that is not a stock background, its not the best but i did what what asked from the person who wanted it. hell its not even my best poster. 

 

and no not every poster will be amazing and be edited awesomely but that doesn't mean you need to sit here and complain about posters that get nominated that you don't like.

I didn't down rep you btw, just to kick that off.

 

You should have just used a stock background then. I know it might not be your best poster or whatever but we're here in the greatest poster of 12 months. How many posters and events have went by? If it's not even your best poster, and this is where we nominate what's the best, how can I not give my opinion on that? If Alex Cacares got nominated for UFC fighter of the year are you not allowed to say it's not fair?

 

As a guy who knows his way around photoshop. I felt like saying something. If someone tells me the old Dissolution belt is better than the SPI Helsinki belt am I not allowed to call that bollocks?

50/50. Say we were doing best video of the year and someone just used UFC footage with text over it. I spent an INSANE amount of time on one, drawing intricate pictures with a voice over and stuff. I'd be fucking raging if someone got voted on stock UFC footage without doing anything. Being a designer myself, not often posters but with websites and everything, the basic stuff doesn't cut it. It's like someone being AMAZED because a poster is a gif or that it appears to come out of it's borders. Easy things to do, doesnt make up for flaws.

Ryne knows my thoughts on this, but as I said it's a solid all round poster and I couldn't complain what so ever if someone made this for me. Good work.

When Gif posters first came about, everyone was amazed by the first batch simply because it was something new and exciting. Some people got left behind with their Gif posters, just throwing it down without anything relevant to the event or it seems with any creativity, so I would say Clydebankblitz is giving a fair assessment of how some Gifs are far and away more impressive, while you could also easily find regular posters that are better than Gifs

 

 

 

And also since I just realised Bob asked a question in the first post, if the user is inactive, but his poster gets voted up he will still win the award.

 

 

And also, if you are nominating a poster, can you please state which designer made it if you know.
