Huntsville Madison County Public Library Teen Library Design Contest 2010

CONTEST RULES:

  • All participants must be between the ages of 12-18.
  • All entries must be 100% original art with no copyright or trademark symbols.
  • Participants have the option of submitting artwork to be used as a background on the logo or designing the logo to include the words: “Huntsville Madison County Public Library” and the year “2011”.
  • Art may be signed by the artist.
  • Entries may be print or digital.  Maximum acceptable print size is 8.5” x 11”.  Designs may be submitted up to 8.5 x 11, but keep in mind the logo will also be used for the teen library card which will have a finished size of 2 x 3 ¼ inches so it needs to look good at that size.
  • For digital artwork, we can accept vector artwork (.eps, .ps, .ai, etc.) or we can accept raster images (.jpg, .psd, etc.).  However, the finished artwork must be printable at 300dpi (dots per inch) at 2 x 3 ¼ inches.
  • No slides, video, or websites will be accepted.
  • Deadline for entries is Friday, November 19, 2010 at 5:00 PM.  Art may be submitted to any library location.
  • Artwork may be picked up after judging is final and participants are notified. 
  • The only limits to your creative expression are no excessive violence, nudity, profanity, or racist overtones.
  • Winning artwork will be displayed on the Teen Library Card for a period of one year and will be used as the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library Teen Logo for the same period.
  • For more contest information, contact Katie Kalil, Young Adult Librarian, at (256) 723-2995 or e-mail at kkalil [at] hmcpl [dot] org.
