Rusty by Kimberly Kelly Santini, 2010 winner of the wine label contest.
Our friends over at Mutt Lynch Winery in Sonoma, Calif., and Dog Art Today recently launched their third annual wine label contest, and we want to spread the word to Bark readers who are also artists—we know there are many of you.
The contest calls for canine-themed artwork (no photography) on the theme “Naughty” for a special blend of Cabernet called “Muttitage.” Five hundred bottles of the exclusive blend with custom label will be sold during the Dog Days of Summer event on August 6 at the Mutt Lynch Winery in Healdsburg, Calif. Ten percent of sales will go to the Healdsburg Animal Shelter.
In addition to bragging rights and the satisfaction of helping shelter pups, the winning artist receives a case of wine, a featured spotlight on Dog Art Today and an invitation to the Dog Days event. Find complete contest details here.
The entry deadline is Friday, May 13 at midnight PST. Online voting runs from May 16 to May 21, 2011. Good luck and happy painting/sketching/assembling/sculpting. Don't forget to play with your dog.
