This competition has now closed. For further information, please contact Madeline Slaven (

A workshop and competition for book artists at the Bodleian Library, Oxford.

We are looking forward to seeing your work and learning how a book artist today interprets the medieval book. All entries will be judged anonymously and a short list of 15-20 works will be selected.

The closing date for this competition is 31 August 2017. We will notify you by 15 September if you have been selected for the final judging and exhibition. You will then have three weeks to post or deliver your book to the Bodleian for judging. All entries must be received no later than Friday 6 October.

Please check the conditions of entry.
