Today we launched the Steinbeck Book Cover Competition. Local primary school pupils have created an amazing array of book cover designs as part of this year’s Steinbeck Festival Limavady.
The competition run by The Steinbeck Festival in partnership with Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre and The CCGBC Town Centre Management team, asked pupils to design a cover for one Steinbeck’s works.
Aimed at inspiring children to get creative, the incredible entries saw the pupils use their imagination to capture their chosen book’s titles through the medium of art.
The competition attracted over 300 entries from St Finlough’s Primary School, St Mary's Gortnaghey Primary School, Ballykelly Primary School, St Aidan’s Primary School, Drumachose Primary School, Faughanvale Primary School, St John’s Primary School, Limavady Central Primary School, Drumrane Primary School and Roe Valley Integrated Primary School.
The 42 winning book cover designs will now be presented in Light Boxes and displayed in Drumceatt Square in Limavady until March 25th as part of the Steinbeck Festival.
As well as this, all 300 pieces will feature in a public exhibition hosted at the Arts and Cultural Centre Community Gallery until 25th March 2023.
