Enter the “It Came from a Book!” contest (and the Last 3 Teen Films for the Summer)

 From now through September 30th, you can enter a contest over at The Library as Incubator website. They’re planning to collect a huge online gallery of the entries and announce the winners on their website during Teen Read Week, October 14th-20th, 2012. Read on for more info on submitting your library-incubated artwork and the prizes the winner could take home!

Here are 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– they want to see it all! Submit a digital photograph of your work to trwartcontest2012@gmail.com by 11:59 PM CST September 30th, 2012. Be sure to include the following information with your entry to ensure that it is eligible:
• Make sure your entry has the subject heading TRW Art Contest
• Include your full name, your library (school or public), and the title and author of the book that inspired your art.
• Include the statement “I affirm that this is an original piece of artwork.”
During Teen Read Week, the Library as Incubator Project will host a digital art gallery of all entries to the It Came From a Book! TRW Art Contest, and we will also collect votes on the best library-incubated artwork. The winner will be announced on their site the following week!

• $50 Amazon giftcard
