THERE IS NO LIMIT TO HOW MANY CONTESTS YOU CAN APPLY FOR

 

1. COVER DESIGN CONTEST

Prize: Publication Credit for the first full year of our editorial calendar.

 

Entry Fee: None.

 

Eligibility Requirements: Open to all US residents 18 years or older.

What you need to know:

 

This contest is to determine who’s design template will be used for the MOST iNFLUENTIAL ART Magazine cover for the first year of our editorial calendar. The design and layout for a magazine cover are one of the most crucial aspects of the design process and is the first thing viewers will see when they interact with the product. 1000WORDS has already created a mockup for you to use as a reference. Our goal is to create a bold, minimalist, yet elegant design that will capture our audience’s attention. Though that is the direction we are moving in it does not limit you in your creative process. 

 

We are artists as well and want you to bring your A-game. You are free to create whatever you believe will best personify our brand and in doing so (if you win) you’ll have the rare opportunity to leave your unique thumbprint on the face of our magazine. 

 

Simply use the above image as inspiration for your design. Once you’ve submitted your entry form you’ll receive an email with a link to more reference images of other magazines that we’ve drawn inspiration from. These reference images will give you more context and aid you in the conceptualization of MiA’s overall feel and style.

 

You will also receive images of art made by our resident artists/judges Dean Karol, Tatiana Prutzman, and Mr. J. You will use these to construct the cover and act as a stand-in for the “featured” artist who would normally be on the cover (winner of MiA Magazine Color Contest).
