Calling all artists: Surly Brewing is looking for you

They're looking for unique art that incorporates the Surly brand.

Attention drawers, painters, and creatives: your work could be featured by one of Minnesota's biggest beer brands.

Surly Brewing announced they're looking for a new artist to create designs for SurlyFest 2017, Darkness 2017 and their 12th anniversary beer in 2018. The art will be featured on everything from beer labels to T-shirts.

It's something the brewery does every year, and you'd be in the company of some pretty awesome artists like Brandon HoltErica Williams, and Adam Turman, who have been featured in previous years.

Surly says they're looking for something really unique that incorporates the artist's own style with the Surly brand. The art can be in any format.

And they made sure to note that this isn't a one-and-done kind of contest for free beer – it's a "full-fledged paid gig" that requires a time commitment. They didn't mention how much it pays, or whether the free beer is actually included.

If you're interested, you must submit your application by Wednesday, March 10 at midnight – more details about that here.

The Surly crew and previous featured artists will judge the submissions, Surly says, and either "let you know you're a finalist, or crush your hopes with rejection."

If it's the latter, at least you can cry into one of Surly's beers.
