Oh what a lovely pair.....of tickets to the Rude Britannia show - 13.07.10

To coincide with The Rude Britannia:British Comic Art Show at Tate Britain, Tate would like an array of humorous fanzines, comics and home made publications to furnish the Reading Room with.

The best fanzines will be selected by curator Cedar Lewisohn and placed in the exhibition space for a period of time. Please only send publications that you think are funny.

Find out more at The Rude Britannia site. Terms and conditions apply.

Fancy winning a pair of tickets to see the exhibition yourself? We have two pairs of tickets to be won in our caption competition. To enter just come up with a bawdy “english seaside postcard-esque” caption for the image to the right. The competition will run until the end of Friday 16th July. After that we will decide on the best two and announce the winners on Monday 19th July.

Rude Britannia: British Comic Art celebrates all that is comical, satirical, political, absurd and bawdy in British art from 1600s to today and we would like you to respond to these themes.

To enter either email us at info@artisproof.com with your caption or tweet us at @artisproof.
