Contest Details

Don’t Panic has teamed up with Penguin books for the chance to design artwork for their biggest fiction launch of the decade, The Left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman.

Listen. The Sanctuary of the redeemers on Shotover Scarp is named after a damned lie, for there is no redemption that goes on there and less sanctuary.

Already receiving rave reviews, the book centres around a mysterious, secretive, charming and violent young boy, Thomas Cale, an occupant of the desolate Sanctuary under the brutal regime of the Lord Redeemers.

So used to the cruelty bestowed upon him that he seems immune to it all, soon he will open the wrong door at the wrong time and witness an act so terrible that he will have to leave the place, or die …

To celebrate the hardback publication of this must-read book, we have launched a visual design competition, for which the winner will have their artwork printed on the infamous Don’t Panic poster and also the chance to have artwork featured in association with Penguins promotion of the LHOG paperback.

What we are looking for is artistic representation of the lead character Thomas Cale. There are three excerpts to choose from, all giving a sneak peak of the character and his surroundings. We want you to use your artistic knowhow and design skills to create your interpretation of Thomas Cale using the text provided.
