The USC Libraries are now accepting submissions for the Tenth-Annual USC Libraries Wonderland Award.

The Wonderland Award is an annual multidisciplinary competition showcasing the creative and interpretive skills of students from USC and other participating institutions as they draw inspiration for new creative works from the G. Edward Cassady, M.D., and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N., Lewis Carroll Collection. The contest is made possible through a generous gift by Linda Cassady, who created the award in 2005 to promote the collection of books, recordings, academic papers, and other items related to the 19th-Century author and polymath Lewis Carroll.

Submissions are due Tuesday, April 1, and the winners will be announced at an award reception at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 17. All undergraduate and graduate students from USC and participating institutions are eligible to submit entries. The first place prize is $2,500 and second place $1,500. For competition guidelines and more information on the award, please visit the Wonderland Award page.

Following the award recepetion, the world of Lewis Carroll comes alive on the facade of Doheny Memorial Library in Wonderland Unbound, a special event that combines digital animation, projection mapping, and library collections. Sponsored by USC Visions & Voices, Wonderland Unbound commemorates the tenth anniversary of the Wonderland Award. RSVP online here (for USC students, faculty, and staff) or here (for members of the general public).
