The pandemic prevented it last year, all the more reason for the Vivanco Foundation to announce with even greater enthusiasm a new edition, the thirteenth, of the Pedro Vivanco International Print and Wine Award. An award that has placed our territory in the national and international spotlight of art and culture.
In this competition, artists are asked to draw their inspiration from the sensorial and artistic universe of wine. Each year it brings together a greater number of national and foreign applicants, making the culture of wine in general and La Rioja in particular increase its notoriety around the world and arousing greater interest in visiting us.
In this edition, the Vivanco Foundation and the Escuela Superior de Diseño de La Rioja (ESDIR) invite artists to send -until Monday 19th April- unpublished prints that have not been presented in other editions or awards, and that focus on the suggestive world of wine. Each author may submit a maximum of two works.
The jury will meet on Friday 7 May, although it will not be an easy task, as this 2021 promises to be a very special encounter with the art of engraving. If the situation allows it, on Friday 25 June the awards ceremony and the opening of the exhibition, with a selection of the works submitted to the competition, will be held at the Vivanco Museum of Wine Culture (Briones, La Rioja).
In addition, Bodegas Vivanco will select two prints (preferably in horizontal format) to label the next vintages of its Vivanco Blanco and Vivanco Rosado.
Winner of the 2019 edition. Osiris’ by Carlos Ramírez de la Concepción (Zorromono).
What is Vivanco?
In 2004, the Vivanco Family decided to make the dream of a lifetime of enthusiasm and dedication come true in Briones, La Rioja: to share their passion for Wine Culture with the world. Today Vivanco understands wine as a way of life from an innovative and energetic perspective, offering a unique and exclusive experience around Wine Culture.
Winery, Foundation and Experiences are a true reflection of the Vivanco Family’s commitment to “give back to wine what wine has given them”.
