The Best Little Brewfest in Texas is proud to announce the inaugural BLBFIT Art Competition celebrating the passion of arts in the brewery industry. We have developed the first beer label art competition based off of artistic styles, pairing brewery against brewery, label against label, to determine whose label is the best.
The BLBFIT Art Competition will kick off February 1st, 2017, accepting submissions from breweries across Texas, and reaching out to our Friends and Neighbors of Texas; New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana breweries. All submissions will be due Wednesday, April 14th. Judging will commence Monday, April 17th through Friday, May 5th. Winners will be announced Saturday, June 17th, 2017 during the awards ceremony at Best Little Brewfest in Texas, in Lewisville, Texas.
Call for Submissions:
Are you interested in being a part of the Inaugural Best Little Brewfest in Texas Art Competition? Here is how it will work. Breweries will submit digital copies of their artwork they use from their cans or bottle logos into one of 10 categories that they self select. Each category will be judged according to style charactices for that specific style by a panel of judges with experience in the art and digital graphic industry as well as marketing and advertising industry. Each category will have their own rubric, and points will be awarded to determine a winner. The winners from all 10 categories will go head to head to determine a grand prize winner.
In addition, we will have an 11th specialty category that is for posters. If your brewery or brewpub produces poster artwork to advertise your beer, we are doing a Fan Favorite category for these awesome posters. These posters will need to be submitted via mail, will be displayed at the Best Little Brewfest in Texas, and voted on during the brewfest to determine which poster is the Favorite. After the festival, each poster will go on a live auction webpage from Saturday, June 17 through Wednesday, June 21st. Winning bids will receive their poster, and all proceeds raised will benefit Cloud 9 Charities
