Geary's Brewing Company Hosts Design Competition
Each year, the D.L. Geary Brewing Company hosts a competition on campus for the design of the packaging for the Geary's Summer Ale. All undergraduate students are allowed to submit a design. The winning design is then featured on the labels of one million bottles of beer, as well as on the six-pack and 12-pack boxes. The student with the winning design is awarded $5,000. This year, there were more than 60 entries to the contest. The winner is selected in January and works with Geary on bringing the concept to production for a launch in late spring. See all the entries.

Annie Mora Wins $5000 Geary's Contest
Each year, the D.L. Geary Brewing Company sponsors a contest for the undergraduate students at Maine College of Art to design the label and packaging for the Summer Ale. The winner receives $5000 and their artwork on nearly 1 million bottles of beer. This year’s winner is Annie Mora, a Graphic Design junior from South Londonderry, Vermont.
“When thinking of a design for the Summer Ale I wanted to illustrate the energy of the ocean. The inspiration for the splash came from watercolor paintings that I do in my sketchbook. The colors in the packaging represent warm summer days in Maine,” says Mora.
