Who May Enter:

No purchase is necessary to enter the contest, but entries will need a valid email address. This contest is open to U.S. residents age 12 & under (as of the date of entry) with the approval and oversight of a parent/guardian.

How to Enter:

To enter this contest, first download the Contest Template (also available at the bottom of the page).  This can be printed, or your young artist can create digital artwork.  Any artistic medium is acceptable, but all designs must adhere to the following rules:

  1. The design must use the provided template and not obscure the elements present in it (including the Brilliant Books Logo).
  2. The design must relate to reading or books in some way.
  3. The design must be exclusively the work of the young artist entering the contest.  This includes all graphics, photos, fonts, textures, etc.  The use of any copyrighted material is reason for disqualification.

Once the design is complete, scan it, snap a photo, or upload the image file and submit it, along with all required information, using our Contest Entry Form.  Entries may be submitted from September 1, 2021, until December 31, 2021 at 11:59 pm EST.

How to Win:

The winner will be selected by our staff in a blind vote in January, 2022. They will not know who created each piece and will be asked to select their favorite. Whichever piece gets the most votes will be our winner! We'll then contact the parent/guardian of the winning artist via email to collect a shipping address and determine which Brilliant Books Monthly subscription is best for your young artist. The winner will then recieve a complementary welcome box for their new subscription featuring their new design!
