First International BookCrossing Day Contest: The winner!

January 7, 2014
Great ideas deserve to be made into reality. And this is an idea from the membership, in the person of the wonderful MissTree, that we love: this year, let's celebrate the first International BookCrossing Day! As the day, Heather chose April 21st, because that was the day when she felt that BookCrossing was not only launched, but started to 'come alive'.

It's really simple: release one or more books on this day, and you're in. If you want to make your releases more festive, you can use the special labels and stickers we'll put in the Supply Store.
But here's the rub: those labels need to be designed. Since we BookCrossers are a creative bunch, surely we can come up with some great labels? So grab your art supplies of choice, and start doodling!

We need your design to be in our mailbox before January 20, and after that we'll put it online so people can pick their favourite. It needs to be square, and the size needs to be 800 x 800 pixels or larger for good printing results.
Please make sure that any image you submit is either rights-free, or is something you have created yourself or otherwise own the rights for. And please don't refer to a specific year, because we'd like for this to become a tradition and so we may be using your labels more than once.
If your label is chosen, we'll send you a pack, on the house! And BookCrossing members all over the world will be able to buy your label in the Store.
May the best design win!

Update: the winner has been revealed! Read more here.
