Journalists from across Goal.com's 37 editions voted for the world's 50 best footballers. In 2018 our theme was based on stained glass artwork, with each player recieveing a perspex portrait award. In comparison to the 2017 award, we produced less promotional material and focused more on the illustration side of the 50 players.
12 Illustrated player heads I produced out of the final 50. Some of these awards made it to the players themselves.
