AMPAS® Unveils Best Picture Poster

New Poster
"80 Years of Best Motion Picture Oscar® Winners"
In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the Academy Awards®, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences® unveiled the latest edition of its Best Picture poster this week. Currently only the 79 known Best Picture winners are shown in the poster. The 80th Best Picture winner will be added on Oscar Sunday, February 24, immediately following the Academy Awards presentation.

The 27 x 40-inch poster is printed on premium quality, Forest Stewardship Certified paper. The poster is available for purchase on the
Academy’s Web site, publications, or by calling 1-800-993-4567. Posters will be shipped in March 2008. The official poster for the 80th Academy Awards is shipping now and may be ordered on the same page as the 80 Best Picture poster. See my post Thursday, 17 January about the posters.

Designed by Alex Swart, the poster features a spiraling gold ribbon containing the one-sheets for all the Best Picture winners, forming the shape of the Oscar statuette. Swart, head of SwartAd, a marketing design agency, designed the official posters of the 73rd and 75th Academy Awards as well as previous editions of the Best Picture poster.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2007 will be presented on Sunday, 24 February 2008, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m., PT. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.
