The Provincial Public Library in Olsztyn invites you to take part in the international competition for a bookplate. “Moved the Earth” on the occasion of the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus.
2023 is the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus, a well-known astronomer, revolutionist, genius, outstanding scientist and Renaissance man.
By promoting the character of Copernicus, his ideas, works and life, we also aim to popularize the traditional bookplate as a form of artistic expression created with various graphic techniques. It is also important for us to create a forum to present the achievements of graphic art by artists from Poland and abroad. We want this prestigious event of international importance and reach to bring together artists from different parts of the world, renowned graphic designers and beginner graphic arts adepts.
Bearing in mind your experience and knowledge as well as knowledge of the artistic environment, we would like to ask you to disseminate information about the competition among other creators by using all information channels available to you. Your authority will certainly have a positive impact on the reception of our competition and will encourage potential participants to participate in it even more. We count on your support!
The appendix contains the competition regulations and the application form.
The materials are also available for download on our website: https://www.wbp.olsztyn.pl/ekslibris-kopernik. The deadline for submitting works is September 30, 2022.
