First "Francisco Mantecón" Advertising Poster Design Competition


Bodegas Terras Gauda S.A., by a unanimous decision of the Board of Directors, has decided to set up an annual international advertising poster design competition, to be known as the "Francisco Mantecón" Awards, in honour of the artist who was the exclusive designer of our corporate image, a friend, an efficient collaborator and partner since the very beginnings of the winery. The winning design will be used as the cornerstone for the company's advertising image during the following year.
