The iconic New Yorker dandy ‘Eustace Tilley’ is turning 86 this year, and boy oh boy is he looking sharp!
In celebration of the occasion, the New Yorker is inviting readers to create book-bag versions of our dear friend. Twelve winners will be featured in a slide show curated by art director Francoise Mouly, and one grand prize winner will see their design printed on a Strand Bookstore tote bag – yet another iconic New York fixture – and a $1000 shopping spree. If you are familiar with the Strand’s prices, that’s a lot of books.
Creative Quarterly, the sister publication to 3×3, is gearing up for its next competition, Creative Quarterly 16. Known for publishing the best graphic work 4 times a year, it’s a great way to get exposure without waiting an eternity for results and publication.

Eligibility: all art directors, graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and fine artists in the US, Canada, and UK. Work must have been completed in the last six months.
