The 2011 Chicago Public Library Design Contest returns for its third year, this time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of One Book, One Chicago. You can find more information and past One Book, One Chicago titles here: http://bit.ly/r06Sso.
TODAY, we begin accepting design submissions from local artists who we’re challenging to create a special anniversary poster that embodies One Book, One Chicago program. The deadline for submission is Sunday, September 11. Artists’ submissions will be hosted on the Chicago Public Library’s Flickr page and Chicagoans will be invited to vote for their favorites between Monday, September 19 and Sunday, September 25.
Thirty finalists will move on to a special event held in the Winter Garden of the Harold Washington Library Center on Tuesday, October 11 where their work will be showcased and the Grand Prize and People’s Choice Award Winners will be revealed. The winning design will be featured on outdoor billboards as a part of the Chicago Public Library’s forthcoming ad campaign throughout Chicago.
