It’s on at the Campbell County Public Library (CCPL) with the deadline set for submissions for the 2022 Graphic Novel Character Contest.
Graphic novel artists have until 4:30 p.m. Feb. 25 to submit their original, library-themed graphic novel character pieces in their appropriate division, per CCPL.
Submissions are allowed in any medium of the artist’s choice from grades 1-3, grades 4-6, grades 7-12, and 18 and older, or an all-ages computer-generated division.
All entries may not be traced or copied from another artist’s work and bonus points will be awarded for incorporating the CCPL System logo into the character. Submissions may be submitted on the back of the entry form or on a separate sheet no larger than 8.5” X 14”, per CCPL.
Winners will be announced on March 8 with the overall winner receiving a $30 gift card and the opportunity for their art to be used in various library advertising. Additionally, first, second, and third place winners will be awarded prizes from the CCPL Foundation.
Library patrons will have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice prize winner either on Facebook or at the CCPL with the winner receiving $25 worth of art supplies.
