2011-2012 National Book Collecting Contest for Young Canadians Under 30


Attention Canada’s young book collectors – there is still time left to enter the 2011-2012 National Book Collecting Contest for Young Canadians Under 30.

We are one of the contest’s sponsors and this is a great opportunity for young bibliophiles to show their passion for rare books.

The winner takes home $1,000 (CAD) with the second and third place collectors receiving $500 and $250 respectively. Entrants are required to write a 1,500 to 2,000-word essay about their collection describing important features such as binding, decoration, illustrations and key bibliographical aspects such as format, printing and publication data.

More details.
