To celebrate Book Week 2020, the Blue Mountains Library is running a bookmark design competition: Make Your Mark. This competition is open to primary and high school students, with three age categories: Kindergarten - Year 2, Year 3 - 6, & High School Students (12 - 17 years). Participants are asked to base their bookmark design around the theme: Curious Creatures, Wild Minds - but with a library or literary twist. Please use the template provided to design your bookmark, or use the following dimensions: 70mm x 255mm. Your artwork will be edited to fit a standard bookmark (48mm x 210mm) and additional library and council logos will be added to the finished design.

Professional Artist and Art Teacher, Naomi Oliver, will judge the competition. If you need a little design inspiration, check out Naomi’s video on Bookmark Design via our website and Facebook page. Bookmarks will be produced of the winning designs and be freely available at library branches during Book Week (17 - 23rd October).

Winners will receive a prize pack in the post. Entries are due close of business Friday 2nd October. We encourage participants to submit their artwork and signed guardian consent form digitally. Entries can be emailed to: bmlibrary@bmcc.nsw.gov.au , with ‘Make Your Mark’ as the subject of your email.
