Jarritos, the innovative yet traditional soda, calls for artists to submit for their 3rd annual Jarritos Flavor City Art Contest. The winning piece will be published as a Jarritos advertisement in an art/trade publication; and the first, second, and third place winners will be featured as art at Jarritos events, and be the subject of an online/email blast–plus there’s a supply of Jarritos for each of the winners!
Known for its natural, exotic flavors like guava, hibiscus, pineapple, and tamarind, Jarritos encourages innovative artists of any age to describe what the soda means to them, in the medium of their choice, incorporating the company’s logo, one of the soda’s eleven flavors, and the slogan
We’re not from here.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2013. Details and rules can be found at JarritosFlavorCity.com.
The panel of judges, made up of professionals in the arts includes some names familiar to CARTWHEEL readers, like Gregory Siff, Casey Zoltan of Known Gallery, Ethos Gallery‘s Lisa Falcone, and artist Annie Preece, plus CARTWHEEL founder Cindy Schwarzstein. Photographer Luis Ochoa, whose images appear on CARTWHEEL also joins the judging panel along with Risky, Dante Colombatti of LA Canvas, artist Antonio Pelayo, Leticia Rhi Buckley of the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, actor Jacob Vargas, Dan Regan of Black Banditz, and Brandy Flower of Hit+Run; with Les Shettaoe from Division Creative Foundry, Franklin Green of Frank 151, Adrian Miller of Power by Xyion.com, and Roger Gastman of R. Rock Enterprises bringing their savvy to the panel.
