Submissions are now closed for this contest. Winners will be announced in early November. Thank you to all our wonderful community members who participated!

This is your chance to create a library card for the Farmington Community Library! Anyone with a current FCL card is eligible to submit an original design following the theme of "Books & Beyond". Your design may be selected as a limited edition FCL Library Card.

Contest Guidelines

Create a drawing or design following the theme “Books & Beyond” using the provided Contest Design Template. Designs should take inspiration from our theme of “Books & Beyond”. We don’t limit ourselves to just books, so you shouldn’t either! Your design should celebrate an aspect of the Library community, services, or an experience you have had at FCL.

A winner will be selected in each of the following age groups:

  • Ages 5-12
  • Ages 13-17
  • Ages 18+

Submissions may be in any art medium (illustration, pen, photography, etc.). Designs submitted online must be high resolution, at least 300dpi, and the following design formats will be accepted: .jpeg, .png, .ai, .eps, .psd, and .pdf. Please print the template one sided on letter size paper (8.5 x 11).

Entry Requirements

  • The artist (or artist's parent/guardian) must have a current FCL card (see eligibility and application details here)
  • Multiple entries per person are allowed; you must submit a separate Entry Form for each entry
  • Submissions must follow the dimensions included in the Contest Design Template
  • Design content must be appropriate for all ages

Entry Instructions

Download the Contest Design Template below or pick up a copy at either FCL location. Review the template and dimension requirements. All designs must adhere to the dimensions of the Library card and keychain. The actual card dimensions are 3.375” x 2.125”; and the keychain measures 2.5“ x 0.875“.

You may recreate the template on your home computer, but you must keep the dimensions the same.
