2017 Winner and 2018 Finalists

Meet the 2017 Winner:
Ari Azzopardi

The winner of the inaugural Nouveau Label Contest was an artist named Ari Azzopardi, 24, of St. Petersberg, FL. Ari’s design, Candy Coated, was selected by a vote on social media and she received a $3,499 grant to continue her pursuit of fine art. Ari’s label captured the celebratory spirit of Nouveau with its bright colors and vibrant energy.

Entering the 2017 Georges Dubeouf Beaujolais Nouveau contest was one of the best decisions I have made in my art career. The whole experience was so exciting. [and] having my work on the Beaujolais Nouveau bottle for all of my friends and family to experience and enjoy made it that much better! This truly helped give my artwork the kind of wide exposure that I would not have otherwise had at this stage in my career.
