Controversy regarding the poster for the 2018 carnival

In the month of November 2017 the winner of the competition for the carnival's poster was announced, and the prize was of 500 Euros.

However, soon after the poster was announced, it was revealed that the author may have stolen various images and illustrations of other designers and used their work without approval in order to create the poster and win the prize. We haven't seen yet any official reactions to these allegations and it wasn't announced yet if the poster will remain the same or if it will be changed.

Update regarding the poster for the carnaval

Ayuntamiento de Santiago del Teide has announced that the winner had retracted his submission and the poster is now annulled. Probably another winner will be chosen soon.
