During the exhibition, students at Nottingham Trent University and visitors of the exhibition were invited to design their very own personalised monogram to be in with a chance of winning a limited edition print from the Alan Kitching Collection. The rules were simple; the monogram had to:

1) include your own initials
2) use one letter from the typefaces used in the Alan Kitching Collection. The subsequent letters could come from anywhere: another typeface, hand-drawn, a found letter…
3) be rendered in a way that it tells us something about the designer.

Entries were then uploaded with the hashtag #NTUmonogram to Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

The competition ended on Sunday 18 October 2015, and the winner (selected by Alan Kitching himself) was announced on Thursday 22 October.

Read all about the winning entry and the runners-up in this story on our blog.

Along with various video and photo works, Dick Jewell’s solo exhibition Now & Then also includes a chance to get involved with one of the art works.

Take a selfie in front of Dick’s large-scale photo collage War & Peace and upload it to instagram using the hashtag #djwarandpeace for the chance to win a signed copy of Four Thousand Threads

The winning entry will be selected by Dick Jewell.

The competition will run for the duration of the exhibition – so you have until Saturday 23 February to visit the exhibition and get your selfies uploaded!

UPDATE: The winning entry came from Photography Student, Alice Rodgers — Dick particularly liked the angle of this selfie, which you’d expect from a BA (Hons) Photography student at NTU’s School of Art & Design…

Thanks again to everyone who entered! Check out all of the #DJWarandPeace selfies here.
