Rose Festival Opens Label Art Contest to Entire Community
Cash Prize for Winning Submission Best Depicting Festival Theme: 2020 Rose Vision
The search is on now for new original artwork depicting the Rose Festival’s annual theme. Oak Knoll Winery, the Official Winery of the Portland Rose Festival, is seeking submissions from the greater community for creative and original art to be considered for the 2020 Rose Festival Oak Knoll Wine Label. Oak Knoll annually produces a custom wine label for its Rose Festival release of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Rosé of Pinot Noir. The contest is open to everyone identifying as an artist with a 2020 Rose Vision.
For 33 years, Oak Knoll Winery has been giving selected artists an opportunity to not only create original work based on a theme, but to see that work move through the commercial process as a mass produced and distributed wine label. Oak Knoll will generously donate $1,000 to the winning artist and provide the experience of transforming their artwork into a wine label by participating in the process with representatives from Rose City Label Company.
Following the production process, the artist’s work will be given broad public and media exposure through Rose Festival VIP events — including bottle signings — starting with a public unveiling of the new label (April 2020). Submissions will be accepted from November 15, 2019 to January 15, 2020. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges, and will be notified by no later than January 31, 2020.
