Saw this on the Classicists list and thought someone might be interested:

In conjunction with the international conference 'Ruins and Reconstructions: Pompeii in the Popular Imagination', to be held in Bristol in July 2007, the organisers are running a competition entitled 'The Casts Project'. This invites creative responses, in any media, to the body casts of Pompeii. Winning entries will receive a cash prize, and will be displayed at the conference. We would be very grateful if list members could help us in publicising The Casts Project to likely participants. We are primarily targeting schools, but the competition is open to all ages. Full details of the competition brief and rules of entry can be found on our website, but please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Many thanks Joanna Paul ( and Shelley Hales (
