Crash by J.G. Ballard design competition
This Competition has little to do with Puerto Vallarta but I love the author and this book and this story caught my eye…..
Win the chance to design the book cover for a limited edition version of Crash by J.G. Ballard
Cover of the first edition (hardcover) of Crash by J.G. Ballard
Are you a budding designer who would love to see your work on the cover of a book? Or are you a fan of the author J.G. Ballard and would relish the chance to add your mark to one of his novels? Well now is your chance.
To celebrate the release of Ballard’s new autobiography, Miracles of Life: From Shanghai to Shepperton, published on February 4, 2008, Times Online has teamed up with publishers Harper Collins to give you the chance to redesign the cover of his 1973 novel Crash.
The competition will be judged by Ballard, who will chose the winning design from a shortlist of six selected by the Harper Collins design team. The winner will see their design used on a limited edition of Crash, due to be published in September 2008. The five runners-up will each receive a copy of the autobiography.
All designs must be 197mm x 129mm in size, and include the book title, the author’s name and the Harper Perennial logo. The rest is up to you.
There are three ways to enter.
