Bookmark Contest!

2021 Bookmark Contest Header Image

Calling all young Austin artists: the 2021 Bookmark Contest is underway!

Use the below form to draw a colorful bookmark inspired by your favorite book. We'll choose a winner from each of the four grade groups (Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th) plus the Modern First Library category (learn more about the MFL initiative here) and display the winners as well as ALL the entries on our cafe wall in April. Plus, the winners from each group will have their bookmarks professionally printed and distributed throughout the store.  

Show off your amazing talent and love for books! Submit by March 31st, 2021. Digital entries are preferred, but we are accepting physical submissions at our bookstore. The best methods to submit your bookmark design online with highest quality: a SCAN of the artwork, or a photo taken of the bookmark laid flat on a white background in good lighting with no shadows obscuring the artwork or perspective distortion.
