Life of Pi contest

As per my previous e-mail, Yann Martel is having a contest to find an illustrator for the new edition of Life of Pi. You only have to submit one drawing by December 10th, and the prize is 5000 pounds. Not that I want the competition, but check out the details: LINK

I thought about submitting to this competition, but it's a bit tricky. They do only require one drawing at first, which the artists are shortlisted from. Then the shortlisted artists have to create six fully rendered illustrations for possible selection for the book. Only one artist is selected. Seems like an awful lot of time and work for just a possibility. I'd rather put that energy into something a bit more guaranteed.

Actually, Dave, the contest requires one completed illustration to get on the short list. Then there are 5 sketches to be reviewed, not fully rendered illo's.

Even still, 6 drawings for a possible 10 grand seems pretty reasonable. :)

Don't encourage him, Keating, that's one less competitor to worry about =)

Hmmmm... Strange. I thought for sure I read that right. That's a different link than what I read before. Maybe they had the information a bit different? Who knows?!?
