LitCon Mascot Contest


$100, t-shirt with your design, and credit as the artist of the 2017 mascot!


The contest is open to those living in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area. We will be using the design on our poster, promotional materials, website, Facebook, limited edition t-shirt, coloring page for our coloring contest, and elsewhere.

The design must be unique and created solely by the artist. Please keep in mind that the design will be used in the following ways: full color, one- or two-color tone for a t-shirt, and outline for a coloring page. The design should reflect the spirit of LitCon, which we will leave open to your interpretation. (Hint: think literature, fantasy, geek/nerd/pop culture, and what the library means to you.) Since we’re looking for a “mascot”, the design must be humanoid or an animal/object anthropomorphized in some way. Please direct questions to

How To Submit
