Win prizes with arty beer

Beck’s recently launched a series of limited edition art labels on all its beer bottles. And to celebrate, Beck's are giving away a swish prize pack, which you could win by sharing your artistic bent. 

Local artists joined with local musicians to design the labels which will only be available for purchase until the end of April. The artists Rainbowmonkey, Andrew McLeod and Gavin Hurley were inspired by musicians Cut Off Your Hands, Ghost Wave and Parallel Dance Ensemble to each design a series of labels inspired by a song from each band.

Beck’s also ran a competition to find a talented, up-and-coming artist whose work would also feature on the new Beck’s labels. Elam student Sarah Findlay was the winner of this comp, and her designs are also featured on the Beck’s labels.

The labels are not only on Beck's bottles though. They have been printed and are hanging in selected bars around New Zealand and when you purchase Beck's at one of the bars listed, you could go into the draw to win that limited edition print. Who doesn’t want a drink out of a work of art?

We have a prize pack worth $116 that contains a Beck’s t-shirt, a print of the artists’ work and a Beck’s six-pack to give away. To be in to win tell us your "Beck's Arty Collaboration Name" by taking your favourite musician/band, followed by your favourite artist's surname. For example, Madonna Munch, U2 Hotere, Beatles Banksy or Lady Gaga Van Gogh.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
