The is divided into competition divided into two age categories – 18-25 and 26 and over – with a cash prize of $500.
Winners will also get a private rum tasting for up to ten friends at the Bermuda National Gallery, BNG membership, and ten sheets of the wrapping paper.
Winners of the 18-25 category also get a BNG mentorship, including meeting artists and a chance to take part in gallery exhibition designs, and a Gosling’s rum mentorship in brand development.
The two winning designs will feature in the windows of the Gosling’s Front Street store, and on the BNG and Gosling’s Rum social media platforms.
Gosling’s has already launched a limited release special “Flora Gold” rum.
Each of the 15 bottles were signed by Ms Duffy and will be auctioned, with proceeds going to the Flora Fund, set up to support budding athletic stars.
