The results of the competition will be announced on Friday 25th March, when all entries will be exhibited to the public at the University of Sussex in the Creativity Zone, from 11-5.30. (For how to get here, please see below.)
The postcard competition and exhibition is one of the highlights of our three-day conference. The varied postcard entries feature poems, short stories, original artwork, photos and humorous collages. The entries were judged, in correspondence, by the novelist Nicola Barker, whose latest book Burley Cross Postbox Theft is a comic novel told in letter form. As well as all the Postcards, the exhibition will showcase works by visual artists who are interested in postcard and letters. Artists whose work will be on display include Helen Allsebrook, Des Barry and Diego Vidart, Carson and Miller, Anwyl Cooper-Willis, Richard Cox, Paula Do Prado, Julia Gillen, Chris Glynn and Fran O'Hara, Lea Redmond, Lino Mannocci, Nicola Ashmore and Chudasama and Wood. Our Conference Programme has further details.
