Deadline: 1 July
The British Journal of Aesthetics (BJA) has opened the 2016 edition of its annual cover design competition, this year themed ‘Art and War’.
The competition is open to students on full-time undergraduate or graduate courses at art and design schools or in fine art/design departments in any country, to design a cover for the journal, which is published by Oxford University Press (OUP), both in print and online.
The winning design will be used on the cover of the British Journal of Aesthetics (BJA) and this issue will carry a half-page about the winner and his or her work. The winner will receive five (5) printed copies of the issue featuring their design, and will also be invited to choose £150-worth of books published by OUP, free of charge. Runners-up will also be considered for future issue covers of BJA and will be notified in due course.
The overall cover design includes an image, generally a black and white photograph of a sculpture or a detail from a print. It is normally but not necessarily a monochrome image, even though winning entries in the competition have varied considerably from this norm.
To be eligible to enter the competition, you must be enrolled on a full-time undergraduate or graduate course at an art school on 30 January 2016.
No Entry Fee for applications. Entries to the competition must be submitted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Entrants should submit a .jpeg or .tiff file containing their image, as well as a .jpeg or .pdf file of the cover design incorporating their image. All entries must be accompanied by a .pdf containing a scanned letter, signed by the entrant, stating details of the course on which he or she was enrolled on 30 January 2016, together with the entrant’s contact details.
