The image, drawn in three colors, -green, yellow and red- of an artist, microphone in hand, singing a song, with his dreadlocks flowing in the air, that progressively transform into birds taking flight.
This is the new official image of the festival’s poster that will illustrate all of the graphic elements for the coming edition of the Rototom Sunsplash.
The image’s author is the Italian graphic designer Rosario Nocera, who in 2012 was awarded third place, with the very same design, in the International Reggae Poster Contest, founded by Michael Thompson and Maria Papaefstathiou in 2011. The illustrator has ceded the rights of the image for the promotion of this year’s festival, with the theme ‘Reggae for Freedom’.
