Each entrant will be given an A5 Derivan Seawhite Sketchbook Eco (150gsm, 32pp). This sketchbook must be used in some way (don’t send us a different book!) and must remain within its dimensions. This does not mean you cannot pull the book apart and re-sew it, sew in different pages or a different cover, so long as it remains within its dimensions and does not exceed 5cm thick.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
To participate, simply purchase your entry (with or without postage required) by Friday 1st June 2018 and ensure all details are completed accurately. Your sketchbook will be posted (or available for collection) within the following 2 weeks. (You will be subscribed to a mailing list to keep you up to date).
