Post by Nofret » Fri Oct 21, 2005 6:34 am

Got this link from Drawn.ca (credit where credit is due), and spreading the word.
Read on for details, and best of success for those participating. I guess it's open to everyone.

The only info available is there, though quite possibly, if you sent an email to the adress [email protected] , they may have more details
(quote from the article below):


<Entrants must submit a single illustration before Dec. 10. A shortlist of finalists is to be announced in January, and those artists will produce a wider array of images. The winner will be named in May 2006.

Entries are to be submitted to Life of Pi Competition, Books, The Times, 1 Pennington Street, London E98 1TT or e-mailed as a JPG file to [email protected].


So Dec.10 chooses the finalists, and after that, more illustrations are made to determine the winner.

Yeah, I just saw this on the CBC website. I almost immediately thought of Israel's illustration, and I would LOVE to see a version of Life of Pi illustrated by him.

There's going to be some really stiff competition, and I really do hope they display all the entries somewhere.

Oh yes, I also thought of IO's illustration. I PM'd him about the contest, just in case he may be interested.
