There are all kinds of ways of looking at me and my story… I will leave interpretation and, generally speaking, motivation, to you

Stephen Fry, More Fool Me

Challenge

**Yourfry is now closed for entries. Check out all the fantastic creations on our interactive Interpretations map**

Imagine gathering up the thoughts of Stephen Fry, giving them a good shake, and rebuilding the resulting disorder in a totally original fashion. Sacrilege, you might think. What good could possibly come from this?

That’s what YourFry is all about.

We want you, the planet of creative and tech minds, to deconstruct and repurpose the words and themes from Stephen’s last two books. Just think of all the new and vibrant media that you could create for a fresh audience to read, view and enjoy.

But what to create? Perhaps an infographic which celebrates literature and language, or an audio piece which contends with mental health. Text, data visualization, interactive web format, app, film, photographic, animation, 3D-models or live and experiential creations… the canvas, as they say, really is blank.

The culmination of this project will see our elite panel of Stephen Fry and friends critique and award notable creations to be broadcasted on the screens of 10s of millions around the globe via our partner, WeTransfer. These entries will also receive a Penguin Fry Innovation stamp of recognition for their portfolios and networks.

We hope this content will provide plenty of inspiration for you to create something new. Stephen’s passions lie in technology, literature and language, gay rights, mental health, sport, love, friendship and heroes. Any of these themes could act as focus points for your own ideas.

So, dive in and see where Fry’s words take you…
