You could create the image of a brand new limited edition Rum with Distinctly Gin and the National Lobster Hatchery!
We are running a fantastic competition to give you the chance to have YOUR very own design on the front of a brand new premium rum by artisan distillery ‘Distinctly Drinks’! This bespoke rum will be named after our much loved giant lobster ‘Captain Barnacles’ so you could be the one to keep his lobster – legacy alive in this wonderful way!
We are looking for artists / graphic designers / creatives to design a label for our limited edition NEW lobster rum ‘Captain Barnacles’ – The art work should portray the essence of Captain Barnacles’ charming character but it is totally open to interpretation. Anyone can enter and it’s open to all levels of talent and all ages (as long as under 18s have consent from a guardian!)
If your design is picked as our winner, not only will your amazing artwork be displayed proudly on this highly prestigious brand for all to see, but you will also win a bottle of the delicious Lobster Rum, gain FREE entry for two to our fascinating NLH visitor centre for a year AND we’ll even give you your very own ‘lobster adoption’! We will also promote your fabulous art work across our popular social media sites and even offer you the opportunity to exhibit your work in our stunning exhibition room here at the hatchery!
Your entries will be judged by Laurance Traverso, owner of Distinctly Gin and of course our amazing team of lobster experts!
Free to enter the competition and we will try to give as many entries as possible publicity!
All entries should be sent in digital format as a PNG or JPEG image.
The entries should be 145mm x 95mm oval or square for the front label of the Lobster Rum bottle
