Here is a cool contest that came across my email. The Alberta Beer Festivals has a contest to have someone design a label for a beer specially made for their Craft Beer Festival. You have to be an Alberta resident to apply for this contest, but it would be cool if BC Craft Beer organizers also did something similar here.
If you are from BC and traveling to Calgary in May, or to Edmonton in June, why not try to go to one of these beer festivals?
Here is the press release from the Alberta Beer Festival.
Every year, Alberta Beer Festivals partners with the Olds College Brew Master Program to brew a beer to celebrate the Calgary International Beerfest (May 6/7) and the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival (June 3/4). This year, ABF is holding 3 separate contests to help us CHOOSE the style of our beer, then NAME the beer, and finally design the beer LABEL for the beer.
