Designn Magazine Cover Art Contest

Tue Aug 19, 2014, 8:55 PM



Details


The DesignnHQ challenges you to create the cover art for the next edition of Designn Magazine! The winning artwork would be used as the cover of the 6th edition with an inside cover feature.

Your entry can originate in any medium. Keep in mind that that this is a magazine cover which would go to print; hence keep the highlights of the artwork focused towards the center and right side of the cover, and avoid details towards the edges (1cm from each edge).

(Note that you only need to create the background image of the cover according to the size provided below.)



How to Enter



1. Create


Create your entry in any medium - anything from digital paintings to traditional drawing.

Make sure the final work is at least A4 size (2480px x 3508px) and 300dpi. Save it as a JPG or PNG file, and you're ready to submit.

Example:

Once you finish your piece, upload your cover image as a PNG or JPG file to DeviantART.

Remember to mention it's for the Designnn Magazine Cover Art Contest on the description.

Then submit it to the contest folder at our offical group DesignnHQ . (You must be a member to submit.)

It differs with the cover art - but usually it is a bit large :)

Hi. I might decide to participate in the contest.
I have just a question:
I work on Linux and I use The Gimp for my creations, so the format of the original file of my work would not be .psd, but .xcf.
Is it OK?

I believe you can save Gimp files as .PSD's... I might be wrong though. Are you able to check? :)

I have checked and updated the plug-in. Yes, now I can export the files in .psd.
Many thanks :)
