Taft's Brewing Co. is hosting a can label design contest for its Paint the Town Hoppy double IPA. 

They are currently accepting artwork submissions for the beer, which has "mandarin orange and grapefruit aromas that are followed by notes of ripe papaya and golden pineapple." Can labels need to be 8.25 inches x 3.875 inches and six-pack box labels need to be 17.4065 inches × 20.271 inches.

According to the contest rules, you can enter up to five times with five different label designs. A panel of three judges will review each submission and rate them based on overall creativity, visual appearance and relevance to the product/community in Cincinnati or Columbus. 

The submission deadline is midnight Oct. 16 and one winner from each "region" — aka Columbus and Greater Cincinnati — will get $250 cash, a friends and family release party at a Taft's location, promo on and Taft's social media, whatever local media interviews Taft's can secure and other features.
