Winner Announced On
April 24, 2012
THE BRIEF
Long renowned for their strong ecological stance and decoratively designed recyclable bottles, SIGG is continuously making a global statement for quality, design and eco-friendliness. Every year, SIGG launches a new collection of SIGG bottles, featuring a selection of elaborate and distinguished designs ranging from a heart or a butterfly to a pirate or a dinosaur.

Now, SIGG is inviting artists around the world to submit their most creative and imaginative design for the chance to have it produced on a limited edition SIGG bottle. Artists have complete creative control when creating their design - use the brightest array of colors, give it a Safari or a snow theme, make it shine or even make it glow in the dark - there are no boundaries.
ABOUT SIGG
SIGG bottles are designed and manufactured from a single piece of pure aluminum, giving them a uniform, seamless construction. A solvent-free, eco-friendly powder-based coating is baked onto the exterior of the bottle, creating the brilliant exterior. SIGG bottles are a perfect fit for every member of the family, with over 100 unique designs. They are designed to be reusable and are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their very long lives.
