Ibiza Design Awards is a graphic design contest to recognise and honour the season’s best club and music posters. We ran a special feature on Club Poster Art in edition 737 5th June this year. Increasingly recognised for their artistic merit and cult collector status Ibiza club poster art was recognised with an exhibition at the London museum of contemporary art in January. The Ibiza design awards, brainchild of two Spanish entrepreneurs Ibai Cereijo and Iratxe Larrea, further reinforce the esteem and artistic merit of what is often in practical terms the most disposable of arts with many designs having an intended shelf life of no more than a few days before they are replaced with the next event on the party calendar.
Talking of his inspiration for the awards Iratxe said “Walking around Ibiza and seeing those design artworks posted on walls, which are created by the clubs to draw the public’s attention, has become a real show in itself,”
