Bookmark Design Competition is back!


Bookmark Design Competition 2020


Yes, itt’s back - bigger and bubblier than ever - and a little earlier!

We usually run our bookmark design competition over the July school holidays but we thought that with everyone hunkering down at home now, designing a bookmark would be a great way to fill some of that time. This year the theme is Books in the Bubble. There will be prizes for the best and runner up design in 3 age groups -children in school years 1-3, 4-6 and 7-8. The 3 best bookmarks get printed by us and become the official Bookshop Bookmark of the Year. The other prizes are books from Gecko Press and book vouchers. This year, thanks to Gecko Press, all entries will also go in the draw to win a pile of books. Download and print off the competition entry form and get designing. (If the download doesn't work, send an email and we'll email it back to you). When you've finished, keep your design safely at home until the shop opens again. We'll let you know how to get your entries to us once lockdown is over.


Meanwhile if you'd like to share your design with us you are welcome to scan it and send us a pic. Send to with Bookmark Design in the subject line.
