Submit Your Original Artwork for a Chance to Be Featured on Our 2023 Festival Cover!

Calling all artists! The Nantucket Book Foundation wants to feature an original and unique piece of literary art for our 2023 Nantucket Book Festival program and marketing materials.

The winning artist will receive $750!

  • The art should be inspired by books and Nantucket. We are accepting all types of art, but the original concept was for a hand-painted piece.
  • The art would need to be versatile enough to use for a vertical program and ads.
  • We are looking for art that follows our mission statement: "The NBF celebrates the transformative power of words to inspire, illuminate, educate, and to connect us to each other through our shared humanity. We are building a community of readers and writers on and beyond Nantucket."
  • Feel free to creatively look back at Nantucket's storied history with books, as well as our modern day literary landscape.
  • All submissions will be viewed by a select committee and the winning submission will be used on all NBF 2023 materials. The winning artist will receive $750. If the committee decides no submission is suitable, we reserve the right not to select a winner.
