Steampunk Window Blind Design Contest

Do you love the genre of steampunk? Your steampunk design could be featured in a  roller window blind in the UK. Direct Blinds seeks design submissions from readers around the world for an image to be printed on a window blind.

Follow this link to submit, entries must be received by December 3rd.  Science fiction authors Ian Macleod and James P. Blaylock will judge the contest. The winner will get a £250 cash prize and their design will be featured in a window blind.

Here’s more about the contest: “Do you dream of the days when airships ruled the skies, gentlemen duelled with steam-assisted rayguns, and a waxed moustache was considered the very apex of fashion? Then Direct Blinds wants to hear from you. Steampunk is the theme – so whether it’s a smoggy cityscape, a clockwork contraption, a dirigible battle or something altogether more fanciful, we want to see what you can do … Entries will be judged by acclaimed science fiction authors , who will select 20 of the best to be displayed in an online gallery. It’s then opened up to a public vote to decide the overall winner.”
