Young at Art Caldecott Photo Contest

Bringing people together through books.

Submission Deadline: March 6
Public Voting: March 7 – 13


The Chandler Public Library is calling on local readers to recreate one of the Caldecott Winner’s book covers for a chance to win great prizes. Raid your bookshelves, channel your creativity, and submit your most inspired cover now through March 6. If you don’t have the book with the cover you would like to recreate at home, browse and borrow from CPL’s extensive collection.

Lit Lover Tip: It’s best if the photo you upload is side-by-side with the real cover so people can tell which book you are recreating. If not, be sure to include the name of the book cover on your submission form.

Here’s the official Book List for this year’s contest.

Need more inspiration? Visit the Chandler Museum’s Young At Art Caldecott Exhibit now through March 10.
