The premiere of the Prix Luciole Awards lit up Cannes’ Le Gray d’Albion on May 26, 2024. Lauded as a platform to honor artistic creativity in movie poster design, the event was sponsored by China’s leading film ticketing platform, Taopiaopiao, and the Parisian Alliance Cinéaste Chine-Europe.

Esteemed artists, filmmakers, and influencers attended from around the globe. With a jury dauntingly made of industry professionals, competitors had to prove their design’s originality, creativity, and thematic representation.

Winners were celebrated at an awards ceremony, which set a higher standard for all future competitions in this area of visual art. The anticipation for the next edition is already mounting, indicating the successful impact of the awards.

The Prix Luciole came with a 1,000-euro prize, awarded to the poster for ‘Julie Keeps Quiet’, a Belgian drama by Leonardo Van Dijl.

The poster’s contemporary tone, blending typed and photographic elements, white space, and a powerful image of the protagonist, effectively portrayed the story’s internal conflict and modern setting.

The jury was an illustrious assembly, including seasoned film critic Sheri Linden; Hartland Villa visual design studio co-founders Lionel Avignon and Stefan de Vivies; and Cannes film festival consultant, Thomas Pibarot. Actor and screenplay writer, Wu Ke-Xi, presented the main award.

The Jury Prize went to the suspensefully handcrafted poster for crime drama, ‘She’s Got No Name’, while ‘The Last Dance’s vibrant poster and ‘Under the Northern Sky’s innovative design were also applauded. Special mention was given to Mona Convert’s raw and sparse ‘A Fireland’ poster for its profound juxtaposition of surreal and realistic elements.

An audience award, chosen by Taopiaopiao’s viewers, was added to the ceremony, won by ‘She’s Got No Name’. The Special Achievement award went to ‘Eternal Twilight’, with ‘Song of the Sprites’ winning in the animation category.

The evening concluded with a tribute to veteran actor Li Wei for his lifelong contribution to film, wrapping up an event recognising cinema’s phenomenal talents and looking forward to future industry growth.
