'It came from a book' contest encourages teens to create art from literature | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
What do you get when you cross a publisher, a photographer, a young adult services librarian and a creative advocacy project? The first-ever "It Came from a Book" art contest! A group of dedicated individuals and a children’s/YA publisher are hosting the contest in anticipation of Teen Read Week on October 14-20. In short, teens must create a piece of artwork inspired by a book they’ve read and submit a digital photograph of their work by September 30. All photos of the submissions will be on display on “The Library as Incubator” website during Teen Read Week. People can vote for their favorites throughout the week, and the site will announce the winner the week after.
