Two Roads is asking artists to show us what taking the “Road Less Traveled” looks like to them -- for a chance to win $1,000 and have their art immortalized on a 30 ft. high fermenter in our brewery’s Tasting Room.
Our own “Road Less Traveled” philosophy led us to creating craft beers that are unique versions of some of the world’s most classic beer styles.
Now we’d like you to show us how you take the “Road Less Traveled” with your art and we’ll help share it with others who appreciate your creativity and our beer!
Our contest is open to artists in all states where Two Roads is sold. There will be prizes awarded to the top six artists and the top 15 finalists will be invited to an unveiling/reception at Two Roads Brewery in Stratford, CT in mid-December.
The 15 finalists will be chosen by our Facebook followers and the winner, selected by a panel of judges, will receive $1000. Five runners up will receive $250 each.
All entries must be submitted by November 10th.
How It Works:
- Art must be 2D only and be reproducible for display on our fermenter (vertical format). An example of this can be seen on our website. It must fit within the parameters laid out on our website (7w:9h aspect ratio).
- Art can be uploaded via a digital application on the Two Roads website.
- Entrants can be from any state where Two Roads is sold, and entrants must be 21 or older.
