The annual Film Festival Poster Awards for 2012 have been announced by FilmFestivalPosters.com. Among the award winners are major film festivals like Cannes, San Sebastian and Dubai, but also smaller international film festivals like HIFF, one of the Bronze Award winners.

The artist behind HIFF’s 2012 poster is Mari Ahokoivu, a Finnish comic artist, whereas the graphic design is by HIFF’s longtime AD Samppa Ranta, Punavuoren Folio. HIFF’s tradition is to annually pick up a different promising young Finnish artist, set to deliver variable artwork for the festival editions.

The Film Festival Poster Awards are an annual collection of honors given for outstanding achievement in artwork and other promotional materials. Links to all the winning posters can be found here.
