Illustration Contest Winner Announced

Posted by Chrissey - 10th June 2012

After a number of extended deadlines, we have finally drawn a close to our Illustration Contest and we’re excited to present Sad Umbrella by Kat (kat-in-the-attic.com) as our winner. We loved the umbrella’s cute sad face and the way just looking at it made us feel soggy.

A weeping, discarded umbrella in the rain

Kat’s illustration, plus lots of new art pieces, many of the stories featured on the site and new fiction will be featuring in The Great Escape’s first print anthology: Great Escape’s Vol 1, which will be officially announced soon.


  • What a winner! I feel cold and damp just looking at this, it evokes that blustery scene so well… and that feeling we all know (and hate) – losing our umbrellas in the rain!
