The Bridgeman Art Library, in association with the Man Booker Prize, today announces a competition to create new artwork inspired by one of five Man Booker Prize winning titles from the last 40 years.
In celebration of the Bridgeman Art Library’s 40th birthday they are offering entrants the opportunity to use images from the Library’s extensive archive of art, history and cultural images in order to create the artwork, which can be chosen from G by John Berger, Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally, The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje, Sacred Hunger by Barry Unsworth and The Life of Pi by Yann Martel. The competition is open to any individual over 18 years of age.
The winner will be selected by Victoria Bridgeman, CEO of the Bridgeman Art Library, alongside David Caines, Design Director for the Man Booker Prizes. The judging panel will be on the lookout for the most original and interesting use of images from the Library, and will award the overall winner with the entire set of long-listed titles from this year’s Man Booker Prize, and a printed canvas featuring their winning entry.
