PORTLAND, Maine — A Maine College of Art student will soon have her artwork plastered on nearly 1 million bottles of beer.

Annie Mora is this year’s winner of the D.L. Geary Brewing Co.’s annual contest giving students a chance to design a label and packaging for the Portland brewery’s line of summer ale.

Mora, a junior from South Londonderry, Vt., says her design tries to capture the energy of the ocean and the warm summer days in Maine.

For her work, Mora receives $5,000 and has her artwork displayed on nearly a million bottles of beer.
