The annual Comedy Poster Awards have taken place at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
After six weeks of public voting for the Beer52 Audience Award, and a further choice made by a panel of industry judges for the Panel Award, two winners were announced last night, Sunday 26th August, at the end of the month-long arts festival.
Olaf Falafel's poster for his show There's No i In Idiot features his face covered in sticky eyes. He revealed on Twitter that it took four hours to stick more than 200 googly eyes onto his face for the photograph, which was taken by Alan Powdrill.
In excess of 300 posters were entered into this year's awards by comics, photographers and designers. All the entries, and more information about the awards, can be found on the Comedy Poster Awards website.
Awards founder Gina Lyons says: "2018 was another great year for posters and I love both winning designs. I urge more comedians to go bolder next year to prevent Olaf and Lou from cleaning out our prize pot AGAIN!"
The judges for this year's panel award were Chris Curley from Comedy Central; freelance comedy producer Rupert Majendie; Alice Jones, arts editor at i Newspaper; and Nerys Evans, head of comedy at Expectation Entertainment.
