BWR invites you to explore our enigmatic, one-word prompt of “creature(s)” for our first ever online themed contest, open until March 31st, 2024. Creature(s) can represent anything, from mythical beasts straight out of a medieval bestiary to microscopic organisms on distant planets to cryptids lurking in the woods, just out of sight. Whether you draw inspiration from folklore, sci-fi, the natural world, lived experiences, or the abstract, we’re desperate to know: what do(es) creatures conjure up for you?
