• Rebecca Read, Storm Over Clare

Wilson Vineyard Label Commission

First launched in 2012, The Wilson Wine Label Commission continues to provide an outstanding opportunity for South Australia’s emerging artists.

Partnering with the Helpmann Academy, the Wilson Vineyard in the Clare Valley offers South Australian visual artists the chance to submit an artwork to be featured as the label on their top of the range Wilson Vineyard Polish Hill River Riesling, which is widely distributed nationally and internationally. The chosen artist will receive full credit on the wine’s back label and the opportunity to have their original work displayed at the winery’s cellar door.

Open to final year visual arts students or graduates (up to five years out) from Adelaide College of the Arts and University of SA.

The artist will receive a cash component of $1,000 and 1 dozen 2016 Polish Hill River Riesling (valued at $348) for the acquisition of the piece and the rights for future reproduction.

A broad base of artists are encouraged to submit works for consideration. A wide variety of two-dimensional works will be considered, that fit the following criteria:

• Bright contrasting colours or images
• Aspect ratio of approx. 4:3 (landscape)
• Strong feature elements
• Works don’t need to directly reference wine or the Clare region

Submissions can include completed works but artists are encouraged to create new works for the commission.

For examples of winning labels from previous years, visit The Wilson Vineyard website.
