OFFICIAL GUIDELINES

*SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED*

Please read this carefully!

Entries must be received between:

October 1st - October 31st, 2022 at 11:59 PM CDT

All works must be your original work. (No copies or prints of your original work.) 

Art dimensions can be ANY SIZE, but keep in mind that these go on a wine bottle, so it is better if your art is formatted in more of a square shape. It will also be on display at William Chris Vineyards.

We will accept no more than 3 submissions per artist.

NOTE: The winner must sign over all rights to the winning art submission, and the artwork will become the property of William Chris Vineyards for the purpose of promoting and packaging our annual Artist Blend.

 

How to enter:

  1. Each entrant is required to complete the official registration form located below. By entering your name you acknowledge you are signing off on all terms and conditions.*
  2. After the submission period closes on October 31st, 2022, a panel of judges from the William Chris team will narrow down the artwork submissions to 10-15 finalists.
  3. Finalists will be notified during the first week of November.
  4. Once we narrow down the finalists, William Chris Vineyards will host an art exhibit, taking place across a series of upcoming events for our Hye Society wine club members. Voting will be held “people’s choice” style, with a winner being announced before the end of the year.
