The “Art of Patrón” Bottle Art Competition celebrates the iconic Patrón bottle and encourages fans and artisans across the country to share their artistic vision, using Patron’s signature bottle as inspiration, for a chance to win $10,000 and a national platform for their work.
Fans year after year create incredible, unique pieces of art that honor the bottle – entries have included everything from a chess set masterpiece, to spectacular waterfalls, to striking light fixtures and awe-inspiring candleholders and this time you have the chance to create inspiring work as well.
Abot the Competition:
“The Patrón bottle itself is truly a work of art,” says Lee Applbaum, Patrón’s Global Chief Marketing Officer. “Crafted by skilled glass artisans in Mexico, the Patrón tequila bottle not only houses the world’s highest-quality tequila, but we’re proud that over the years consumers have found such artistic inspiration in our design and have created beautiful and unique works of art from empty Patrón bottles. The ‘Art of Patrón’ Bottle Art Competition is our way of recognizing, encouraging, and rewarding the ingenuity of artists – professional and amateur alike – who are giving our distinctive bottles a second life.”
