Remember back in February when we told you about the SIGG design contest? Well, now it’s time to hone your inner art critic and choose who you think is the best.

To  bring you up to speed, SIGG delivered a call out for creative,  imaginative designs (using the provided template) for the chance to have it produced on a limited edition SIGG bottle. Everyone who submitted design now has their design displayed online, and now the public gets to vote. SIGG and guest judge Sarah Backhouse will choose a winning design in each bottle category and announce them three days before Earth Day 2012 (April 18th).

These winning designs will each be featured on one of three sizes (.4 liter; .6 liter; 1 liter) of a limited edition bottle of SIGG which will be distributed and sold in U.S. retail stores and on SIGG’s official website. These three winners will also receive:

  • 5% licensing fee of all bottles sold (wholesale value)
  • A feature on SIGG’s official website and social media channels
  • A collection of 100 bottles of the winning SIGG design
  • $1000 each

Three runner-ups will each receive a feature on SIGG’s social media channels and $500, and the highest voted artist will be delivered the People’s Choice award, featured on SIGG’s social media and $500.

And you should just see what has been submitted! With nearly 2,000 designs, it is hard to decide who should get the votes–especially with the influx of eco-driven talent.

Here are some of our favourites with their descriptions:

“Water infinity” By Antonia Feigl

The artist says:

Water Infinity
Water seems endless, but is it?
I translated water into geometric forms. The waves loop around and around and around the bottle.
Waer may seems to be a never-ending ressource, but is it really? Look closer. Think about it.

The colours of the blue water and the silver background are shiny and sparkling (like the bottles, which are already available). 

We love it because:

It’s fresh and clean and delivers one of our favourite natural resources.

“Integração entre produto, meio ambiente e reciclagem” By Bruno Fontes

The artist says:

Baseado no princípio da empresa, em que após o período de vida útil de cada garrafa, a mesma ainda pode ser reciclada, elaborei esse layout mostrando que os produtos em geral da empresa em nada interferem no equilíbrio e meio ambiente, podendo estar sempre em perfeita harmonia e num equilíbrio contínuo, além de que SUSTENTABILIDADE seria a linguagem geral de todos.

Um detalhe que porventura poderia chamar atenção na embalagem é o neon fosforescente verde aplicada somente no logo da reciclagem. Com as luzes apagadas chamaria atenção.

(Translated: Based on the principle of the company, in which after the useful life of each bottle, it can still be recycled, I prepared this layout showing that the products of the company in any way interfere with the balance and the environment, and may always be in perfect harmony and balance in a continuous SUSTAINABILITY beyond that would be the general language of all.

One detail that might happen to call attention to the packaging is the neon green phosphor applied only in the recycling logo. With the lights out call attention.)

We love it because:

It is the essence of what we believe in, all wrapped into a detailed but simple design.

“Nature vs City” By Danielle Kasony

The artist says:

In this artwork I wanted to do something that showed the world and how it is today. We are over run by cities and destroying nature more and more. This is to appreciate what we have and save the Earth.

We love it because:

We understood what it meant before having read the description, and love how clear it depicted her goal for the bottle.
