To mark their 30th birthday, Gospel Green are teaming up with Deptford X to offer artists the chance to design a special edition bottle label.
Gospel Green and Deptford X began their partnership during the 2019 Deptford X festival with Gospel Green as the official drinks sponsor for the festival. The partnership was poised to continue for Deptford X 2020 and coincide with a Fringe artist bursary. However, with the outbreak of Covid-19 and subsequent postponement of the festival, and impact on all of our work, we needed to devise a new way to work in solidarity and continue to offer an opportunity for an artist.
To mark Gospel Green’s 30th birthday and continue something of the spirit of the 2020 edition of Deptford X that would have been, we are delighted to launch this competition for an artist to design a limited edition Gospel Green bottle label that will feature next year at Deptford X.
The chosen artist will receive £250 and have their design printed in a limited run and featured on drinks bottles that will be distributed and sold at the next Deptford X festival.
You can submit your design in ANY format, it can be photography, digital, collage, painting, etc - as long as you're able to photograph/scan your design to us.
