Winning Design Chosen for Limited Edition Earth Day Liberty Bottle

Earth Day 2012 art contest garnered more than 1,100 votes on Facebook

YAKIMA, Wash. – March 1, 2012 – After thousands of votes, a winning design was chosen this week for the inaugural Liberty Bottleworks Earth Day Art Contest, and is now for sale as part of the Earth Day Collection at www.libertybottles.com

The design by Angie Reed Jackson features a drawing of a tree with the phrase “Everything Grows with Love” and “Earth Day 2012.” Her charity of choice is a rural Title 1 school in Tennessee and funds will go to plant trees at the school.

“This was Liberty’s first art contest and we were overwhelmed by the quality of designs that we received,” said Liberty Co-Founder Ryan Clark. “All the finalists’ work was worthy of winning and the voting really came right down to the wire.”

In the end, Jackson’s design won out with more than 500 votes on Liberty’s Facebook page, besting runner up Bentia Kim by less than 30 votes. The three finalists were chosen from more than 20 entries from all over to country.

The winning design goes into production immediately and is up for sale now on Liberty’s website. Seven dollars from each bottle sold with Jackson’s design will go to benefit the Tennessee school she opted to support.

The winning design is printed on Liberty’s 100-percent recycled aluminum and BPA-free bottles in the company’s Yakima, Wash. factory. Thanks to Liberty’s one-of-a-kind cylindrical digital printer, art mediums from illustrations to photographs can be faithfully recreated on bottles in any color or design.

Liberty Bottleworks works with artists from local Yakima graffiti artists to international skiing star Lyndsey Dyer for unique art to print on the company’s bottles, with designs rotating each year plus special seasonal designs, including a baker’s dozen of special Earth Day designs.
