Pabst Blue Ribbon Art Can Contest. The slogan It's Always Been Your Beer. Now Make It Your Can, is the inspiration for these artists.

25 different artists have created some incredibly cool can designs, in the hope of winning the contest and having their design featured on cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon. There is so much diversity in these designs, making it very hard to pick a favorite. All of the twenty-five artists you'll soon see, will have work commissioned by PBR over the next year. But, this is still a contest with some prizes to be won.

There are cash prizes for 3rd and 2nd place, and the 1st place winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize and see their art featured on millions of cans nationwide this Fall.

Pabst Blue Ribbon wants us to vote for our five favorite themed can designs. I can make it a little easier for you to make your choices. One of the designs is from Rockford artist, Joe Tallman with a futuristic theme, so now you only need to pick four more.

Theme: "PBR 2099"
Thank you so much to everyone who has shared and voted for my PBR art can! I am overwhelmed...
