If you’re an artist, and want to win $5,000 for having your art and your name featured on a limited-edition bottle of gin, plus six bottles of Ink Art Gin, then the Ink Art Gin bottle design competition might be worth entering.
In fact, it’s probably uniquely suited to you, as I’m not sure there are many other art competitions which offer exactly six bottles of Ink Art Gin as a prize.

Plus, if you win there are a number of other opportunities to increase your exposure, and if you get second prize, you still win six bottles of gin, but only $500 cash. Entries close on 20 August. This year the theme is FUSION, and all the details you need to enter are on the website inkgin.com.
