Poster Competiton ° Maskerad 2023

The biggest ARTS party of the year needs an equally amazing poster. Maskerad celebrates TOKYO’s 62nd birthday in the most artistic way, with a glamorous and extravagant themed costume party.
TOKYO is now looking for someone to visualize “Cryptids of the Palace” into a poster. The posters will be one of our main advertising tools for the Maskerad and will spread far and wide around our campus and other locations. Once a Maskerad poster is printed it will forever remain as an archived piece of TOKYO’s history.
You can find out more about maskerad history here.

You can get inspired with the moodboard but feel free to let your imagination run wild:
