Every year the Portland Rose Festival Foundation and Oak Knoll Winery partner together for the Official Festival Wine. Each year we call upon the artistic student community of Portland to submit artwork based on that years specific theme! The Rose Festival and Oak Knoll staff evaluate all submissions and choose the artwork that they think is most fitting of that years theme. There is not limit to what medium of artwork that students can submit… We have had oil paint, water color, digital, collage and many more.
The student who’s artwork is chosen will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Oak Knoll as well as a broad public exposure through the Rose Festivals VIP events, a public unveiling and a variety of public appearances at Made in Oregon bottle signing events. In addition, the student will also be a part of the process of making and producing the wine labels through Rose City Label Company’s printing and set up process – a great behind the scenes experience.
We are still awaiting the final announcement of the 2019 Rose Festival Theme, as for right now, please contact Maleah Cooper at the Rose Festival and provide your name, email and year in university, once the theme has been announced she will contact you with the documentation and final deadlines. Thank you!
