Teen Library Card Art Contest

Teen Library Card Art Contest It’s time to update our teen library card. But we want you to design it! The winning design could be featured on our next teen library card! Win some PPLD swag, have a reception this fall, and gain notoriety for your work! Deadline: Friday, August 23, 11:59 pm Submissions must be by PPLD residents aged 12-18. Your submission must include your full name, age, and current grade (if applicable), as well as contact details for both yourself and your legal guardian (if under 18). Bear in mind that some of the library’s information will have to go on the front of the card, such as our logo, so less “busy” designs will have a better chance. We will add these things, however, so please do not add logos or writing to your design. Make your design as large as you want while creating it, but remember that library cards are tiny! Please submit landscape (horizontal) designs. Artwork must be original (and not submitted anywhere else). It can’t include copyrighted material. Both traditional and digital art are welcome. No AI (artificial intelligence) may be used. PPLD reserves the right to make the final decision. All contests or drawings must [...]
