Ale needs logo by today

The Kenai River Brewing Co. is holding an artwork design contest for its Skilak Scottish Ale. The winning design will receive $200 and be credited for the design, which may be reproduced on T-shirts, hats, bottle labels, pins, coasters and-or posters. The winning entrant will work with Kenai River Brewing Co. to develop a finished design, which will be professionally printed.

The design must fit on an 8-by-11-inch sheet of paper, designs may be full color but should be easily modifiable to work in situations with limited color options. The design must say Skilak Scottish Ale, and suggested graphic elements include Skilak Lake, a river, a salmon, and-or a Scotsman.

The deadline is today. Drop off designs at Kenai River Brewing Co., 241 N. Aspen Drive behind Froso’s in Soldotna. Submissions become property of Kenai River Brewing Co., with credit given to the artist. For more information, call Amy at 262-2337 or e-mail kenairiverbrewingco@alaska.net.
