The And/or Book Awards are inviting students currently enrolled at a college or university to enter a competition to animate their new logo, originally hand drawn by David Hockney. The winning animator will be invited to spend a day with Hockney at his studio in Bridlington.
The animated logo will be screened at the BFI South Bank on Thursday 23 April 2009 to introduce the prize ceremony for the 2009 And/Or Book Awards, the UK's leading prizes for photography and moving image books. Runners-up will also have their work shown.
The competition will be judged by David Hockney CH RA, David Sproxton CBE, (co-founder and co-owner of Aardman Films), and Amanda Nevill ( Director British Film Institute). First prize will be awarded to the student who the judges deem to have produced the best and most original animation of the David Hockney logo.
Students should submit their animation entries on a DVD of up to one minute in length by Tuesday 31 March 2009. Registration forms, guidelines and terms & conditions of entry and an illustrator file of the logo can be downloaded from www.kraszna-krausz.org.uk.
