The tradition of ABSOLUT VODKA city-themed limited edition bottles continues; This time with a collaboration with Threadless, the well known Chicago-based community-centered online apparel store. In a new creative challenge (started February 7th) anyone of the age of 25 and over can participate and make a Chicago-themed limited edition ABSOLUT bottle of their own:

Your challenge is to create a Chicago-themed design for the ABSOLUT CHICAGO limited edition vodka bottle. Distill what you love most about the City of Big Shoulders into a fresh, inventive design that will give Chicagoans a reason to raise their glasses.” – Writes Threadless on their website.

The idea is simple – you make a design and submit it to Threadless, where the sites community scores your design and leaves comments, to help pick which design gets to be printed. The winner gets 10,000 cash, next to the design being printed on the legendary bottle. You can check all the prizes, here.

Jake Nickell, Threadless founder and Chief Community Officer commented that the partnership provides artists on Threadless with the opportunity to design on a brand new canvas; he adds:

Also, since Threadless was founded and is still located here in Chicago, we feel a very strong connection and a lot of pride participating in this series,” 

All the creatives that want to participate have three weeks to make the winning design, while voting has already started and will be open until March 7th. The competition is open for U.S. citizens only.

While thinking of your winning design, or hating the fact that you’re not a U.S. citizen at the moment, check out other ABSOLUT city-themed bottles – such as ABSOLUT London or Miami.
