The Night Music Art Competition
Thanks and congratulations to the four dozen artists who submitted entries for the NIGHT MUSIC: Nocturnes 2 art contest, which asked entrants to design a book jacket for a traditionally published work of horror or suspense. We were delighted by the quality of the entries, and the range of works chosen, and we convened a suitably august panel of judges to determine the winning designs: Neil Shawcross, one of the greatest artists currently working in these islands, and my particular favorite; Hodder & Stoughton art director Alasdair Oliver; my co-author Jennifer Ridyard; and Atria Books Art Director Albert Tang. The judges ranked at least half the entries among their individual favorites, but a consensus emerged around seven top choices shown beside.
You can see these and all the designs submitted for the contest clicking below. The winning designs are being printed as part of a limited edition of postcards, signed by me
