Theme : 'The ideal h2g2 home'
Where do you hitchhikers want to live when you're not out roaming the galaxy ?
The World wants to know.

Send a picture of your ideal home to [email protected] before Saturday 5th November.
It can be :
- a photograph, a drawing, a picture of a model or sculpture or anything that takes your fancy,
- serious or tongue-in-cheek,
- a picture of the whole home or a little part of it.
Include a short(ish) statement explaining your artwork : what it shows, why you chose it, any explanation that you feel helps understand your masterpiece.

The author of the best picture (as picked by a jury made up of a professional architect and assorted humans [footnote : panel headed by Tavaron, others to be announced]) will receive 2 tickets for the ideal home exhibition.
The tickets are donated by Aly Larholm, and the exhibition takes place in London (Olympia) from 23rd to 27th November 2016.
(for more information on the exhibition, see http://www.idealhomeshowchristmas.co.uk/london ).
The winner will be announced on 11th November.

If you know you won't be able to attend, you can still take part in the contest, but please let us know so the prize goes to someone who can enjoy it.
There will be Badges !


By sending in a picture, you give h2g2 the right to publish it.

In all seriousness, I love big old trees. If they could support the weight of floors and walls, I'd love to live in them.

Not quite what I had in mind, but the best I could do under the circumstances, given that my ideal home is somewhat emptier than it used to be smiley - cry
