It’s the 180th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s birth, and a new world of “Alice” is taking applications!

The year 2012 is an important year for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the famous and well-known children’s book. No other novel has been translated so widely, read so often, or loved so much. This year makes the 180th anniversary since the birth of Lewis Carroll, the author who created Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

The novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has undergone visualization by many creators. From the cutesy world view offered by Disney, to grotesqueries such as Jan Svankmajer’s work, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland holds the power to widen the imagination of creators all over the world. If given over as a challenge to the creators of loftwork, we think a variety of original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderlands will be born.

With this hope, we are proud to announce the ”Alice New Visual Project”.

Bring to life one page of the novel on your blog

The “Alice New Visual Project” is not simply a search for illustrators. We’re looking for illustrations which match the text of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Please note that the text can be accessed from awrd.com, and thus there is no need to purchase the book.

The submission process utilizes the blog function on awrd.com. When posting your contribution, please insert both text and illustration.
