The contest

Like every year, the municipality of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria launched the contest to select the official poster for the Carnival of the city, the most important event on the island, recognized at national level as one of the most beautiful carnivals in Spain. The purpose of the competition was to design a poster according to the theme of “magic and other fantastic creatures”. We are proud to announce that we won the 2018 edition of this prestigious competition.

Magic and other fantastic creatures

As usual, we started our projects using the brainstorming tool: a dragon immediately came to mind as the fantastic creature for excellence. It seemed to us a great starting point, since this magic creature often recurs in fantasy literature and because the theme of the contest was just “magic and other fantastic creatures”. We represented a crouching dragon placed in the middle of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, during the last night of celebration of the carnival. This giant dragon it's not threatening or fearsome, but a good and happy puppet who came to the city to join the party. Las Palmas has been represented from the point of view of La Isleta district, where it’s possible to see the peculiar shape of the city, with some details such as Las Canteras beach, Alfredo Kraus' Auditorium and the cathedral of Santa Ana. We have also included other magic figures on the scene, such as witches on flying brooms, magicians here and there: they are actually the main characters of this night of magic.
