Create a Bookmark for ImagineIF Libraries!

The teens of ImagineIF voted for “Cat Villains” for the Teen Summer Experience 2024 theme. Now we need you, teen artists, to submit your Cat Villains themed bookmark design, then get everyone you know to vote for it! Not a cat person? Use the theme “Mystery” instead! Have fun and be creative!

Upload your bookmark using the form below. Two bookmark designs will be crowned winners, one from each age category: ages 11-14, and ages 15-18. The winning art will become the official 2024 Teen Summer Experience Bookmarks, and the artists will take home a full-sized poster of their work!

Click on “ENTER ARTWORK” to enter the contest. You will need to create a profile using your email address. This is how we tally votes and will only be used for this purpose. Bookmark size must be 1.95”w x 8.25”h. Minimum width must be 350px.

Click on a photo to vote. You get one vote per bookmark, and you can vote on as many bookmarks as you like.
