Bookface Contest Begins Today!
Bookface is when you incorporate the cover image from a book into the real world through photography. You can use your face, hands or other body parts to line up with the image on a book and take a "bookface" photo - no photoshop allowed! Check out #bookface on Facebook or Twitter to see some examples and inspire your entry. We'll also have lists of books and books on display to bookface with at the Library. Submissions for the contest can be uploaded to hplibrary.org/kids starting today. The contest will conclude with your votes to determine the winners at our Family Reading Night on November 17th. Contest submissions may be posted both in the Library and via our social media platforms. Your personal information will not be publicly associated with any images you submit.
