ABSOLUT X Design Contest (Submit by Feb 5)


Calling all artists and designers for an opportunity to have your work featured in an upcoming ABSOLUT Vodka event campaign!

With the their new ABSOLUT X event series, ABSOLUT Vodka is bringing together music, art, and mixology to create exceptional experiences that’ll surely be worth writing home about.

After kicking off in Chicago last November with a collaboration between Brooklyn band Holy Ghost!, visual artist Nick Cave and mixologist Lynn House, ABSOLUT is bringing you more events in 2013.

Visual artists are now being called on to offer their vision for an ABSOLUT X poster design focused on their city of choice that will host ABSOLUT X: Miami, Austin, Las Vegas, New York or Philadelphia. Per the contest website: “Designers should take inspiration from art, music OR cocktails and should illustrate what symbolizes and/or defines creativity in their selected city.”

The five winning designs will be featured as official posters for one of the five ABSOLUT X events. Each winner will also receive $1000 along with a couple other exciting bonuses.

There will also be a People’s Choice segment where fans will get to vote on a winner.

Submit by: February 5, 2013
Vote: February 6, 2013, 10am PST – February 12, 2013, 10am PST
Winners Announced: February 27, 2013

The FADER and ABSOLUT have partnered to produce two short videos giving a glimpse into the life and mind of the ubiquitous Cee-Lo. In part one, the artist discusses his approach to creation and success, his mother’s mark on his work, and his musical journey, which he likens to “the civil rights of hip-hop.” Part two will be available for viewing on Wednesday, July 6th. Stay tuned!
