  1. Packaging designs for any commercial spirits beverage may be entered.
  2. There is no limit to the number of entries.
  3. The Competition reserves the right to photograph any entry and reproduce it in catalogs, posters, publications or on our website, and in publicity printed by the Competition.
  4. REFUNDS: The Competition will refund entry fees for products that do not arrive in our warehouse in time for competition. However, a processing fee of $25 per entry will be deducted from the refunded amount.


  1. Awards will be made on a merit basis. The judges will not grant an award when, in their opinion, an entry is not worthy of an award.
  2. Entries will be evaluated on the basis of creativity, impact, and execution. Judges will consider not only each designer’s aesthetic choices but the effectiveness and appropriateness of the design within the context of the product and the brand.
