Design our 2024 bookmark

Annually during the month of March, the work of internationally renowned poet and Ukrainian national bard Taras Shevchenko takes centre stage.

It has been a long-standing tradition of the Shevchenko Foundation to celebrate the work of Taras Shevchenko by producing a bookmark featuring a unique artwork based on a pre-selected poem.

Thousands of copies of the annual bookmark are distributed at no cost as educational tools to children across Canada who are enrolled in Ukrainian language classes in public, private, and Saturday schools. The bookmark is also distributed to all Ukrainian dance schools, children and youth ensembles, and youth organizations.

The one-of-a-kind art piece miniatures have also become souvenirs for sharing with friends around the world, while for others they have become collector’s items.

The selected artwork will be integral to the 2024 Shevchenko Foundation March fundraising campaign.

Take advantage of this great opportunity to broaden your exposure! Submission requirements are outlined below.

The successful artist will receive $1,000 for the original artwork.
