Colorado Winefest Art Contest

The Colorado Association for Viticulture & Enology (CAVE) invites artists to submit their original artwork for the Colorado Mountain Winefest Art Contest!

CAVE hosts this annual art contest to choose the official artwork for Colorado Mountain Winefest. Contest entries are accepted each year from October through January. The winning piece of artwork is used to represent Mountain Winefest in the months leading up to the festival and will be featured on promotional materials including posters, wine totes, t-shirts, and brochures, as well as local and nationwide print and digital marketing.

The winner of the annual Colorado Mountain Winefest Art Contest will receive a cash prize of $700.00 (to include all exclusive reproduction rights and copyrights) as well as extensive nationwide publicity and promotion by becoming the official Commemorative Poster Artist of Colorado Mountain Winefest for that year.

The winning artwork is selected by the public through online voting.

• All art entries must be two dimensional (Photography and 3D art are not eligible)

• Entries should represent Colorado’s growing wine industry
