Redesign your favourite book cover

As part of our Big Read initiative, Edge Hill University partnered with West Lancashire Borough Council’s Arts Development Service to run a ‘Design a Book Cover’ competition. Having received over 100 entries from around the region, the designs are being exhibited at the Chapel Gallery Café, St Helens Road, Ormskirk.

Congratulations to members of our Edge Hill community. Helen Hughes in Academic Registry was awarded First Runner Up in the competition with an amazing interpretation of Arthur Golden’s book Memoirs of a Geisha. Naomi Horne, a 2nd year English Language student placed as Second Runner Up with her artwork of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Jennie Owen from Careers was commended for her entry of Watership Down.

The winning piece was a fantastic entry of the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Sophie Eastham, aged 13.

A further winner is to be decided, as a Visitors Vote is open to anyone visiting the Gallery. The visitors’ winner will receive a signed copy of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, the Big Read’s current book, and will be awarded a £50 prize. The exhibition will be running until the 29th June 2019.
