Cake Wines, purveyors of fine drops and even finer puns, are officially on the search for the next winner of the Archi-bottle Prize.
As well as a sweet $2,000 cash prize and five cases of wine, the winner of this award will have the honour of their art gracing the label of every bottle of Cake Wines 2017 Adelaide Hills Barbera.
According to Cake Wines judges, the winning artwork should reflect what’s inside the bottle, which this year is “light in colour, soft in term of tannins, and an overall lively style of wine, handpicked with a portion of the wine left in old oak to add a different dimension.” Your move, artists.
Dubbed ‘Australia’s second most prestigious art prize’, the Archi-bottle has been turning heads for five years now, attracting the likes of Del Kathryn Barton, Sean Edward Whelan, Jodee Knowles and Daniel ‘Ears’ O’Toole.
To enter, participants need to download the info pack here and follow the instructions. Applications close 23 March with the winner announced at an exhibit of the best 30 entrants to be held on 13 April.
