Bookmark Design Contest 2018

We love our iconic Island Books bookmark, but every now and again it’s fun to change it up. Which is why we've invited all artists aged 13 and under to submit their designs.

There is no theme, there are no limits…except it must be 2” x 5” and somehow include the following very pertinent information:

  • Island Books
  • Open Every Day

All entries must be received by the end of our business day on June 29th.  We’ll be posting the finalists in the bookstore and online for a community vote.  As befits most democracies, the one with the most votes wins. We’ll print 500 bookmarks and distribute them while they last. The winner will be announced July 11th.

You can sign the front of your bookmark if you want with your name and age, it’s up to you. Just be sure we know how to contact you in case you’re the winner.

Be creative, have fun, and we look forward to seeing your entries!


You can see the final designs below. You have until the close of our business day on July 8th to vote for your favorite in person at Island Books or via our online poll:
