Judging a book by its cover

May 23, 2012

As part of my 1984 Looks Like This exhibition, we ran a competition for illustration students at Salford University to design a new cover for the book. We had 30 entries, which are all on display at the gallery.  Yesterday me and Amy Goodwin, the Exhibitions Officer at Salford, picked a winner and two runners up – it wasn’t easy or nice to have to decide, but in the end we agreed there was one clear winner.
You’ll have to wait until Saturday 2 June to see who won – when I give a talk at the gallery, but in the meantime here’s a slideshow of the entries here on the exhibition blog.
