The 3rd Annual It Came From a Book Teen Art Contest (#ICFAB)
The Library as Incubator Project and Teen Librarian Toolbox is proud to announce the 3rd Annual “It Came From a Book” Teen Art Contest!!!
This awesome art contest for teens is in its 3rd year, and we are so excited! Our amazing partners this year are: The Library as Incubator Project, EgmontUSA, and Zest Books – this project would not be possible without them!
The basics: read any book and create a piece of art inspired by the story. Your artwork can be any type – photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, manga – we want to see it all! Submit a JPG image file of your artwork (a scan or digital photo) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm CST on November 1, 2014. Be sure to include the following information with your entry to be sure that it is eligible:
- Subject line: ICFAB Art Contest
- Your full name
- Your library (school or public)
- The title and author of the book that inspired your art
- Include the statement “I affirm that this is an original piece of artwork.”
All teens are encouraged to enter! Every entry will receive a confirmation e-mail, so look for that by the end of October.
There will be TWO rounds of judging. Artwork that makes it on to the second round will be posted in a gallery here on our website and open for public voting. Entrants will receive an e-mail regarding the results of the first round of judging.
Tell your family & friends – voting will be open from Monday, November 10th until Sunday, November 16th at midnight. One winner, announced on November 24th, will receive FREE books from EgmontUSA, Zest Books, and Teen Librarian Toolbox, as well as some great swag from the Library as Incubator Project.
For Librarians: Be sure to download this year’s poster to promote the contest with your teens! And let us know if you run your own art contest in conjunction with ours. We’d love to hear from you!
