A maximum of 50 artists will be selected from the Open Call submissions received and showcased in the online JUNGLE show in late Spring 2021. The curated show of selected works will aim to amplify and bring together living artists’ works from all over the world in one ‘gallery show’ online during these tumultuous times.

Open Call for Artists: Oranj x ArtRabbit Poster Design Competition

Oranj, in partnership with ArtRabbit, is seeking artwork for the April Poster design, to be distributed in Oranj’s April Wine Case.

To date, Oranj has collaborated with a host of artists and illustrators including Faye Wei Wei, Laura Callaghan, Alec Doherty, Jess Ebsworth, Rachel Bungey and Coco Bayley, as well as restaurant sommeliers from The Clove Club, Brat, Noble Rot, Westerns Laundry, and Brunswick House.

For this competition, the theme is Rebirth, coupled with wine’s ability to reunite friendships and reignite love. Think conviviality, think springtime, think longer days that bring with it a semblance of hope. But think broadly, because we’re actually not too fussed about how you interpret this theme, and we’re open to any medium and style.

The winner will receive £250 and two full April Wine Cases with five curated bottles, each one containing your designed poster. 5 shortlisted artists will be included in an editorial feature on ArtRabbit.⁠

Who can enter: UK residents over 18

Deadline to enter: 14th March 2021
