Creators Selected On
March 20, 2023
How does Brazilian tropicality awaken your senses? Bombay Sapphire wants to celebrate Brazilian summers and is asking artists to create artwork that brings to life the energy, culture, and colors of Brazil.

We would like to see work from our Brazilian creative community or global creatives who have experienced the pleasures of Brazilian summers.

Create a piece of art for Bombay Sapphire inspired by the Brazilian Summer and take into account the colors, elements, and sensations that only the warmest seasons of the year can provide.

Whether you are a resident of Brazil, a Brazilian native or have visited the country and fallen in love with the culture we want to see your work!

Up to 10x pieces of work will be chosen as Finalists. Bombay Sapphire will then choose 3x Selected Creators out of the 10x. Those creators will have the opportunity to do an online art course "The Creative Process" by Charles Watson

Things to Consider
  • Create a piece of artwork for Bombay Sapphire inspired by the Brazilian Summer
  • Most types of art can be submitted including illustration, collage, GIF or 3D. Photography or video submissions will not be considered.
  • The artwork should be stunning, bold, modern, and disruptive. It should be super creative and push boundaries, making people stop and look
  • When creating your work think about the high temperatures, food, easy-going people and the classic Brazilian way: inspire and explore the characteristics of this continental-sized country to create your art
  • The artwork will be showcased on Bombay Sapphire Brasil's digital channels and in events/exhibitions of the brand in Brazil and worldwide
  • Your submission should be digitally created as a layered PSD or AI file (needs to be fully scalable for social and digital applications), min 300dpi, in 9:16 or 4:5 ratio formats. (1080x1920px or 1080x1350px)
  • Please include the bottle - you can either recreate it in your own style (illustration, graffiti art, graphics, etc.) or use a photo of the bottle provided in the Asset Pack. Please ensure the bottle is naturally integrated into your artwork
    • The bottle is mandatory in the artwork, however, the ballon glass and botanicals are optional

  • You can also take inspiration from Bombay Sapphire's mood board - blue tones and the use of lights and refraction. The balloon glass and botanicals are examples of some elements that can accompany the composition of the art, but they are not mandatory
  • You may use any colours you wish but be inspired by Bombay Sapphire's colour palette. See the Brand Guide for details
  • Avoid heavy use of green and red in your designs
  • Consider the brand's values - exquisite, avant-garde and worldly - when developing your work. Read more about this in the Brand Guide
  • Bombay Sapphire will apply the legal text 'Drink alcohol only in moderation. Do not share with people under the age of 18.’ in the artwork. So please consider that when creating your art. You do not need to include the legal text yourself
  • You should not show or imply drunkenness, that the brand has curative or therapeutic properties, irresponsible drinking, dangerous situations, or anything offensive
  • Do not include people under 25 or any other brands in your artwork
  • Do not include national symbols such as flags or coats of arms
  • Bombay Sapphire Brazil would love you to share your work across social media! Please tag @bombaysapphirebr and use #bombaysapphire #stircreativity #criecombombay so they can see and potentially share your work

Bombay Sapphire is the world's number one premium gin by value.

The BOMBAY distillery at Laverstoke Mill has won a BREEAM award for sustainability and is the home of the unique Vapour Infusion process, where the natural flavours of the botanicals are skillfully captured, resulting in the fresh and vibrant taste with which Bombay Sapphire is synonymous. 

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE has recently been awarded the prestigious Double Gold and Gold medal at the 17th San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). The BOMBAY SAPPHIRE brand is part of the portfolio of Bacardi Limited, headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda.
