Most of us have old paperbacks, printouts, magazines, textbooks, or notebooks lying around that are falling apart or have generally seen better days. Instead of recycling, how about a little creative repurposing that could net you (modest) fame and (a small amount of) fortune?
In honor of National Library Week April 14-20, the Claremont Colleges Library is inviting entries for RE:BOOK 2013, our second annual repurposed paper art contest. You can be as innovative as you like with your submission, but *please note that you absolutely should not repurpose extant Library or otherwise viable books!* The idea of this contest is to give worn or cast-off pages new life.
This year will feature three Amazon gift card prizes for the best re:books: 1st - $250 | 2nd - $100 | 3rd - $50
Throw your hat in the ring at libguides.libraries.claremont.edu/rebook - RE:BOOKs must be submitted to the Library's Services Desk by 5 pm on Friday April 12. We'll have a RE:BOOK celebration, display, and prize giveaway on Tuesday April 16th at 3:30 in the Honnold/Mudd Founders Room.
To give you an idea of how all-around awesome this contest is, check out photos from RE:BOOK 2012, including our 1st prize winner 'Faire Day' by Scripps' Alexandra Pineus.
