Mohawk Fine Papers is the paper company behind our gorgeous ProLine Pearl and ProLine Uncoated papers. We’ve already seen some amazing books made with these papers. And now there’s a chance for bookmakers to show off the design of their ProLine books for a chance to win $2,500 in Mohawk Show 2012.
The Mohawk Show is an annual competition that honors the best in graphic design. And now Mohawk has opened up the contest to print-on-demand books, including those you’ve made with Blurb. According to Mohawk:
As with the other categories in this design competition, these book entries will be judged on the basis of higher thinking in graphic design, excellence in print production, and appropriate paper choice.
There’s no entry fee, you just need to provide Mohawk a single copy of your book for judging along with your entry form. If you’ve designed a book with Blurb using any of our other papers, you can easily upgrade your book to ProLine in the Blurb bookstore. Not sure which paper might be best for you? Order the Blurb Swatch Kit.
The winner not only receives a $2,500 cash award, but also exposure through a printed catalog and a touring exhibition. The deadline for entries is May 31, 2012.
