Design Contest 10: A Humument


It will not have gone unnoticed by those of you who have visited in the past week that the Humument site has undergone a major overhaul and now occupies a dedicated section of this, the artist’s main site. So when we were approached, by Venus Febriculosa - a website concerned with contemporary literature and the art and design of books - about their DESIGN CONTEST 10: A Humument, it seemed like the perfect moment to announce our new Humument content and encourage all our readers to take part in the contest.

The brief is simple. You are invited to create an original visual and/or poetic work using any media or methods using Page 4 of A Human Document as the prima materia for this work.
To read about the contest in full visit Venus Febriculosa and to download the brief click here. The closing date for entries is 26 April 2015 11:00PM GMT.
The winning entry, chosen by Tom Phillips, will receive a limited edition Humument print. Anyone can gloat on the prizes by visiting the Humument Shop.
