The SCQ is pleased to present a contest that seeks “creative” entries inspired by the photographic images found in David Bookbinder’s Flower Mandalas Project. These creative pieces can be composed to the whim of the author, in any form including (but not limited to) poetry, fiction, and/or personal essay; and should preferably refer to a specific flower image found either here or at the main website.
Two book prizes will be made available to the favourite two submissions, being “The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century” by Andrew Roth, and “One Hundred Flowers” by Harold Feinstein. All entries should be submitted by way of the Science Creative Quarterly via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, subject heading: “mandala”, by February 28th, 2006.
Note that David is also keen to collect thoughtful quotations from poetry, philosophy, religion, and psychology that the images call forth. These quotes can be sent directly to David email address (email@example.com)
For especially interesting submissions, David will likely seek permission to use them for a book project currently in the works.
For now, please enjoy the images presented below: a year of flora…
