Last month The Literary Platform announced an international animation competition. We are inviting creatives to produce an animation that illustrates an audio recording of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy author Douglas Adams talking about the Evolution of the Book.
The entries will be judged by Stephen Fry, Bob Stein (SocialBook, Inc), Ranjit Dhaliwal (The Guardian) and Merlin Nation and Chris Angelkov (Atyp).
The competition is open for entries until 15 April 2012. The winner will receive an iPad2 loaded with Douglas Adams books and apps and a Don't Panic towel to carry on Towel Day – the annual celebration of Douglas Adams on 25 May. Selected entrants will also see their work hosted on The Literary Platform and exhibited at an event to tie in with Towel Day celebrations. The competition is international and open to all. However, we are especially encouraging students to enter and will be announcing details of special prizes for students soon.

You can listen to and download the audio recording here. Please don't hesitate to reply to this email should you, or your students, have any questions or if would like to be emailed a copy of the recording.
