Contest: Design a poster for Stephen King's new book "Duma Key"

DUMA KEY is the story of Freemantle, a man who loses an arm in a freak accident and relocates to Duma Key, off the West Coast of Florida, to start a new life. In this wild, barren place, inspired by the sunsets he watches from his new home, Freemantle discovers a unique talent for painting. But his art becomes predictive, even dangerous, and his only option is to unlock the secrets that haunt Duma Key...

Every entry will be judged by a panel containing Stephen King's editor and members of Hodder & Stoughton's Stephen King team. The ten best entries will be forwarded to the author, who will pick the overall winner.

The winning design will be the poster we use to advertise DUMA KEY in January 2008, and will be seen on the London Underground and at outdoor sites throughout the UK. The designers of the top ten entries will each receive an exclusive bound proof of DUMA KEY with their name printed on the front cover, and the winner will also receive a copy of the finished poster based on their design.
