Heineken Red Star Soul is hosting another great opportunity for New Yorkers minus the free concerts or beer this time. In honor of Black History Month, Heineken has teamed up with Words, Beats & Life and has launched an art contest for the month of February. This year’s campaign artwork was created by none other than New York’s Hip-Hop artist Justin Bua, who is no stranger to the Heineken community. Calling out to all you the New York aspiring artists (21+), this is an amazing opportunity to have your artwork featured in print and digital media across the nation.
The Red Star Soul division of Heineken is giving the winner $5,000 and will feature their winning work in their 2012 Black History Month campaign. This event has already started so be sure to upload your entry before 9am on the 21st of this month to qualify for the grand prize!! The finalists will be selected by the Heineken Facebook community so get those 500+ friends of yours (and their friends too) to vote you to the top five. Voting is only for a week and the entries so far are setting up a tight competition.
Click on the Art Contest tab on Heineken’s Facebook page and upload your JPEG, PNG or GIF file. All artwork has to be original. If you find yourself needing a third party’s permission, keep flipping through your portfolio. Only the top five submissions with the most support from the Heineken community will be reviewed by a panel of judges for the Grand Prize. New York won the encore Heineken Inspire Concert perhaps New York can be represented once again by one of New York’s talented artists winning Heineken’s Black History Month Art Contest.
