But Wait! There's More!
Our Design a Uniform competition is to design a uniform and communicate it to us (whether using art, writing, audio file, Cosplay, interpretive dance, mime etc;) for a resistance movement by 31/07/2013
· This isn’t an art competition it’s more about how the uniform communicates something about the world and the resisters.
· It could be a dress uniform, field dress, an armband or badge, sports/PT kit even a salute or handshake.
· It can be for an established universe, a ‘what if’ variant of a published/broadcast background be it TV, movie, game etc; your own works you have a totally free choice.
The prizes are a copy of David Brin’s the Postman and a copy of either the Bernard Cornwall Arthurian trilogy (the Winter King etc;) or Robert Anton Wilson’s Schrodinger Cats and Illuminatus trilogies .
Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Title RESISTANCE! by 31/07/2013 and specify if you want the Bernard Cornwall or the Robert Anton Wilson books.
