English artist Ben Woodhams, designer of the 2024 FIO poster

Cranes are part of the landscape of Extremadura in autumn and winter. Thousands from northern Europe spend the coldest months here. Our region is the main wintering area for this migratory bird in the Iberian Peninsula. Their flight and trumpeting call accompany us in the Guadiana basin, La Serena, La Siberia, Sierra de Gata and the reservoirs of Valdecañas, Gabriel y Galán, Borbollón and Los Canchales, among other sites.

FIO dedicates this year’s poster to this emblematic species of Extremadura. As has been the case for years, the General Directorate of Tourism has invited a renowned artist to develop the image of the biggest bird fair in Spain. And this year is the work of Ben Woodhams, an English artist and illustrator who lives and works on the Danish island of Bornholm, in the Baltic Sea, an area where many of the cranes that travel to southern Europe come from.

With his work 'Three Preening Cranes', Ben Woodhams joins the list of great national and international illustrators who have collaborated with FIO.

Artists invited by FIO to design the official poster (most recent years):

  • 2023: Manuel Sosa (Extremadura, Spain)
  • 2022: Killian Mullarney (Ireland)
  • 2021: Andrea Romero Ardila (Colombia)
  • 2020: Lars Jonsson (Sweden)
  • 2019: José Antonio Sencianes (Spain)
  • 2018: Darren Woodhead (United Kingdom)
