Ahead of the Red Square Book Festival (June 3-6), the organizers have announced a painting competition “#пишиписателя” – literally meaning "paint a writer."

The rules are easy – draw your favorite Russian author – classic portrait, caricature, cartoon, or anything else. Then upload the image to any social media site with hashtags #пишиписателя, #конкурс, #конкурсрисунков, #RedFest, #арт, #конкурсартов.

There will be two nominations for classic and contemporary Russian writers.The artists of the best portraits will get souvenirs from the festival.

Time to get creative!
