And the winners of the Nick Bantock Tribute are…

These must have been the most difficult choices I’ve ever had to make!

Seriously, there were so many fantastic entries, it was a hard task.

So… finally, the winners are:


First prize, $300 and a copy of the book, plus the image on the cover of the book:

Entry 88, S. Busch, Bremen, Germany

88. S. Busch 

Second prize, $150, second full page in the book and a copy of the book:

Entry 24, N. Masse-Bonnaventure, Limoux, France , “Revelation”

24 N. Bonnaventure

Third prize, $50, third full page in the book and a copy of the book:

Entry 102, D. Dube, “The chocolate parrot talking telegram”


102 D. Dube

I can thank enough all the artists who submitted their fabulous work. It was so difficult to choose the winners. You should all be incredibly proud of your talent. You will soon be able to see your work in print.

I am now compiling all the entries that qualified into the book. The final book should be ready by the end of January. It will be available for purchase directly from the publisher, online, and you can purchase as many copies as you want. I will announce the details here on this blog as soon as I know them.


Thank you, thank you for your amazing talents, and for helping celebrate Nick Bantock, to remind him of how many lives he’s truly influenced and changed.

    Congratulations to S. Busch of Germany! It was one of two entries from this artist that caught my eye when I first found this contest, and I commented on the entries at that time. Great art!

  2. Congratulations to the winners! Their postcards are wonderfully inspiring!
