Gospel Green Label Competition
Winning label design by: Tiz Creel
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 launched a competition for an artist to design a limited edition Deptford X / Gospel Green bottle label. The winning 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.
Applications are now closed and our three finalist are busy putting the finishing touches to their designs, a winner will be announced in September.
Our three finalists are:
Gospel Green were bowled over with the quality of all the entrants to the competition and would like to congratulate each and every one who took part.
There can only be one winner and Gospel Green & Deptford X are delighted to announce that the design joining the Gospel Green family was created by the wonderfully talented Tiz Creel, who was also a lead artist in 2019’s Deptford X festival! Brock Bergius and the Deptford X judges were absolutely delighted with the design submitted by Tiz and the final result looks sensational.
Tiz’s bottle will be available for a limited time only. Gospel Green created a special blend in celebration of both the winning label and their 30th birthday. This limited edition has a special dose of vintage Kent cider, made by the talented team at Kentish Pip. This marriage between the cider apples of Kent and the culinary apples of Hampshire, offers a rich luxurious cider with hints of caramel, brioche and green apple.
Gospel Green’s cider maker, Brock Bergius, is absolutely delighted with the winning design and would like to congratulate Tiz on her 100% adherence to the brief – “create the unexpected and change perceptions, and boy has she done this!”
The bottles are available to buy now for a limited period of time and will make a reappearance in Deptford next year, only for the festival. For those of you keen to try a bottle now you can head to the Gospel Green website for information on stockists near you.
