“And the Glass Handed Kites” Vinyl Competition


In celebration of the first ever vinyl pressing of Mew’s masterpiece album And the Glass Handed Kites, we will be giving away 3 copies of the album! We will be running separate competitions in the categories of Writing, Art, and Photography, so everyone will have a chance for their talent to be recognized. In addition to winning a copy of the limited edition vinyl, the top entries will be combined into one final epic design after voting has concluded.

All entries shall be based on the themes present in Kites. It can be a literal interpretation or simply reminiscent of the way the music makes you feel. The only true requirement is that it represents your own feelings towards the album.

Contest 1: Writing

Poetry or prose, anything is good here. Keep the text to under 500 words, or roughly one page.

Contest 2: Art & Graphic Design

Painting, drawing, illustration, and graphic design (including photo manipulation). Traditional or digital mediums accepted.

Contest 3: Photography

Digital or film, as long as it is an original photograph of your own. Small retouches are fine, but heavy manipulation would be considered in the “Art” category instead.


  1. Only one entry per person, per category. You may enter all three if you wish, but you may only win once.
  2. Art and Photography submissions must be in a digital format. If a traditional (non-digital) medium is used, a high-quality scan or photograph of the work is required. Acceptable file types include: JPG, PNG, PSD, or PDF. Dimensions must be of print-quality, a minimum of 2000px in smallest dimension (width or height).
  3. Submitters agree that their work will be used in a final project and give permission for their work to be used in promotional material for MewX.info. Entries that do not win the top prize in each category may still be used in other website materials.
  4. Deadline to submit entries will be Sunday, May 15, 2016.
  5. Winners will be selected during the following week and contacted as soon as the decision has been made. Entrants agree to provide their physical mailing address upon request so the vinyl albums may be sent out.
