each year the oktoberfest poster is announced and people (including me) criticise the choice of the “experts”. this year the muenchen town council have decided to allow the general public (i.e me and you) to help with the deselection process.
people can vote on their website and it will help take the choice down from 49 posters to the top 30. a jury of experts will then make the final choice. using the general public to narrow down from 49 to 30 is really not that much of an influence on the outcome – but I guess its a start.
the final winner is announced on feb 1st.
