We are looking for a visual image to match a poem. The image must be an original piece of artwork or photography. If you have an image that you think relates to one of our three selected poems, please submit your work to us! We will select the best image for each poem. The image and the poem will be combined to make cards that will go on sale as a way to promote poetry to the public.
When submitting your work, please indicate which poem it matches. You can submit one image for one poem, up to a maximum of three different images for three different poems. You cannot submit the same image for more than one poem.
The winner will be awarded HKD$500. Your artwork or photograph will be used to make a card. There will be three winners in total, one winner for each poem.
By submitting your work, the participant agrees to give Kubrick Poetry Society the permission to use the work to make cards. Your name will be printed on the cards as the artist or photographer.
