Tröegs Independent Brewing recently announced the return of its annual Art of Tröegs contest (enter here!). The Hershey, Pa., brewery is asking fans to create an original piece of art inspired by its beer, label art, packaging, employees … and even the brewery itself. Eligible entrants can get in on the contest by creating original artwork in any medium: painting, photography, illustration, digital design, drawing, mixed media, crafts, sculpture, collage, jewelry, metalwork, carving, mosaic, stained glass, etc.
One lucky winner will receive a cash prize of $500 and be the guest of honor at the 6th annual Art of Tröegs gallery opening party. The winning artist will also receive overnight hotel accommodations on the night of the opening party.
“Our very favorite part of the contest is the gallery opening,” said Chris Trogner, brother and cofounder of Tröegs. “We get to meet our creative fans and hatch ideas for even bigger projects down the road.”
In the past, Art of Tröegs alumni have crafted signs for the brewery, reimagined the iconic Nugget Nectar artwork, and even designed beer labels. As an added bonus, Tröegs will release a limited Scratch Series beer with label art inspired by this year’s winning artwork. Aside from the grand prize, two runners-up will receive a cash prize, an invitation to the gallery opening party and a one-night hotel stay.
Submissions for the Art of Tröegs contest are due by May 1, 2022. Entries are accepted digitally or may be mailed in or dropped off at the brewery, which is located at 200 E. Hersheypark Drive, Hershey, PA 17033.
“We’ve been doing the Art of Tröegs contest for about 15 years now, and we’re constantly blown away by the creativity of our fans,” said Trogner. “Each year it gets bigger and better.”
