$1000 prize money and the winning artwork on the label of a popular Sprig & Fern beer rigger
This year we are extending competition entry to all New Zealand artists. The finalists’ entries will be displayed in 7 Sprig and Fern Taverns in the Nelson region and 2 Sprig and Fern taverns in Wellington where patrons can vote for their favourite artwork.
The finalists’ originals will be displayed and available for sale at Art Expo Nelson 2015. The most popular entry as voted by Sprig & Fern tavern patrons will be announced at the Awards evening on Saturday 24th October. The winner will also receive $1000 in prize money.
This is a really unique opportunity for you to promote your artwork in a different medium instead of a traditional art gallery space. Not only that, the winning artwork will be on beer riggers sold in supermarkets throughout the country. This has proven a popular art award these last 2 years.
Sprig and Fern brewery is owned by “the Queen of NZ Breweries", Tracy Banner. A multi-award winning craft beer brewery, Sprig and Fern now supplies its delicious brews to nine taverns bearing the same name.The varieties of S&F beers are available throughout New Zealand in supermarkets and all good bottle stores.
The beer chosen for the winning label is Pilsener, a high quality premium lager with hoppy overtones. The winning entry will be an artwork that reflects the true essence of craft beer and encapsulates the creativity and spirit of the region’s top craft brewery.
