Ross-at-candlelightsmallHere’s a chance to get published...

Ross Mars is looking for a colour cover for his forthcoming book tentatively titled The Permaculture Resource Book - Strategies, techniques and skills for the transition to a sustainable world.

Book size

Book size is 200 mm wide and 250 mm long/deep (8” x 10”), so finished artwork or photo/s should fit around this size. Artwork or design should reflect what permaculture means to you (and to others).


Prize $200 plus 6 copies of published work, which will be launched at the next Permaculture Conference (APC12) in March 2015 in Tasmania.

About being a winner

While I do want a cover, submitted artwork may not be suitable and there may not be a ‘winner’. However some pieces may get used in the book itself (with artist’s permission of course) and I will pay $50 for drawings in this category.

Interested in lodging your interest in submitting artwork?

Ross on email if you want more info or to lodge your interest in submitting work.

Deadline for submissions is 16 January 2015 with the winner being announced soon after.
