To celebrate the flair, color and creativity of the Brazilian origins, Brahma beer is launching VISTOBRAHMA, a design competition which offers up and coming creative minds the chance to get their work seen. The main cash prize of £5,000 and it's an excellent chance to see your design on Brahma beer packaging throughout the UK.

All types of work are welcome, whether its painting, illustration, photography, street art or anything in between.

Cutting edge Brit Artist Stella Vine heads up the judging panel. Joining her are up-and-coming artists Jimi Crayon and Harry Pye who have also created their own limited edition designs.

VISTOBRAHMA is open to anyone in the UK – whether you’re a painter, illustrator, photographer, street artist or anything in between. All you have to do is create a design based on the spirit of Brahma and Urban Brasil – originality, authenticity, style and flair – and submit it via post or our website WWW.VISTOBRAHMA.COM.

Not only will the winning design be put into production and be seen and touched by hundreds of thousands of people around the country, but there’s also a CASH prize of £5,000 on offer - so the winning artist could even visit Brasil and experience the spirit of Brahma for themselves.

Stella Vine became involved in the project having previously worked with other competitions and projects that are designed to encourage people to get involved in art and design. Stella, who ran her own project space 'Rosy Wilde' from a disused butchers shop in East London for emerging artists, hopes that VISTOBRAHMA will show that the arts can offer career fulfilment as well as cultural stimulation. She said:

“VISTOBRAHMA is a brilliant example of a cool brand asking people from the creative community to interpret its image from their point of view. It’s great that a young artist will get such a strong boost to their career, as the exposure that the winner will have is huge. On top of that Brasil has amazing cultural heritage so there should be plenty of inspiration to get people started.”

VISTOBRAHMA is a great chance to promote yourself and, perhaps, get a good amount of money, unfortunately it's only for UK residents. For more information visit their website.
