UNT Special Collections is happy to announce the 11th Biennial Artists' Book Competition. The purposes of the competition are: to encourage the development of students’ work in the medium of Artists’ Books, to foster the creation of Artists’ Books, to reward excellence and creativity in the Artists’ Books, and to build the collection of Artists’ Books in the UNT Libraries’ Special Collections.
For the first time ever the competition is themed, with entries needing to be miniature books. Miniature books are those that measure no more than three inches on all sides. All entries must fit this size requirement in order to be accepted into the biennial competition.
Entries will be accepted in two categories: a Student Purchase Prize category and a Non-Student category. One winner will be selected from each category, but the $400 purchase award will only be given to the winner of the student category. Honorable mention awards will be given in each category at the discretion of the jurors. Additional entries from both categories may be selected for purchase dependent upon availability and budget restrictions of UNT Special Collections.
Entries will be accepted from December 2 - 13, 2019.
