DEADLINE FOR WINE LABEL ART (article first published : 1999-09-13)

The search is on for a South African artist who can render an artwork that best captures the character of a 1997 Zonnebloem Shiraz, set aside for a special collectors' Fine Art of Wine limited edition bottling. The most successful work will be incorporated in the 1997 Zonnebloem Fine Art of Wine label and will earn the artist who produces it a cash prize of R10 000.

The competition is open to all established and emergent artists. If the winner is studying with an art institution, Zonnebloem will also award a further R3 000 to the institution for the purchase of art materials. The judges will look for an entry that best encapsulates the style and character of the wine, which is full-bodied and richly coloured with aromas of smokiness and spices, so typical of Shiraz. It is also described as having “a well-rounded velvety texture enhanced by ageing in a combination of French and American oak "

Entrants are not confined in terms of style but work must reflect the mood of the wine while making the label striking and noticeable. Only original works of art will be accepted and artists may submit up to three original works each. These should be in landscape format, flat and two-dimensional and no larger than A2 in size. No pictures rendered in neon are acceptable.

Simplicity is all-important. The maximum area on the bottle for the artwork portion of the label is 45 x 90mm and in the past there has been a tendency to ignore the need to create an artwork that would work in the small format of a label.

Artists can obtain entry forms by contacting Adéle Wapnick on (021) 424-5280 or fax (021) 424-5290.
