Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) is hosting its first library card design contest, and library lovers age 18 and older are encouraged to submit an original design for a future limited edition library card. A library committee will select the finalists, and the public will have a chance to vote online for the winning card design to be printed and made available to CCPL patrons in the spring of 2019.
No art awards on your mantle? No worries! Submissions may be in any art medium (illustration, pen, photography, etc.) regardless of whether an artist’s skills range from doodle to divine. Need design inspiration? Browse CCPL’s collection of artist biographies, documentaries, comic books, magazines, and more print and digital resources for free motivation.
The winner of CCPL’s Library Card Design Contest will receive a CCPL prize package, public recognition, and plenty of exposure across the county – CCPL currently serves residents with 16 locations and a bookmobile, and five new branches are in various stages of the design/construction process.
Participants may submit multiple entries, and all artwork must be original and free of copyright restrictions. Submissions will only be accepted online and must be uploaded to the contest webpage by midnight on Monday, Dec. 31.
