    Be Our Cover Star Competition...

    Calling all IFX artists!

    Following a string of awesome IFX covers from the likes of Android Jones, Bao Pham and Stanley Lau, we're opening up the front cover spot to the public.

    The competition – be our cover artist
    This is your chance to kick-start your professional career or simply impress your peers by getting your artwork displayed alongside the best digital artists around today.

    • As our cover star, you'll also be featured  inside the magazine.

    Sending in your artwork is easy - you can send your art as jpg, jpeg or png via our dedicated server (where you can also get the details on the cover size) or just pop it on a CD/DVD in whatever format you wish and send it by post to this here address. For all WIPs go to this thread

    Edit: Can I just make sure that everyone is uploading either jpg, jpeg or pngs? Although it may have mentioned other files on the DVD, it's best to keep to these.

    If, the server is causing problems, please send your final cover file via YouSendIt to compo@imaginefx.com. (Note, DO NOT send the full cover entry as an attachement, as you'll kill our email!) Please include your full name, address, email and shoe size.

    All the best,

    Good luck!

    Glad you agree jonnymarvel. We had a lot of discussion in the office about whether we should give it a theme... but decided that if we kept an open brief, we'll get more entries from a wider range of artists. And we'll get to see what you want on the cover, too. We can't wait to see what we get!

    6. Unless otherwise stated, each Competition is open to all residents of Great Britain and the United States (excluding residents of Rhode Island and Puerto Rico) who are 18 years and over, except employees of: (a) the Company and its associated companies and any members of their households; and (b) any third party appointed by the Company to organise and/or manage the Competition; and (c) the Competition sponsor(s). Each Competition is void where prohibited by law

     Does that means folks outside of said countries are not eligible to join this contest? :P

    Re: Be Our Cover Star Competition...

    Am I being really dim, but where is the part which tells us what the brief is? I know its not got a theme, but is it just 'show us what you've got' - and is all the info i need here on these links!?

    Wow you read the small print quick!

    I'm glad you mentioned this, as I am in the process of putting the certain rules and terms specific to this comp up at the beginning of this thread, and it includes the point that this is open to the whole wide wonderful world - excluding no one. 

    As for Manon's query - all you need to know should be in the links, i.e., the cover size and where to upload your artwork... otherwise it's up to you. 

    All the best, 

    Bernflo

    Re: Be Our Cover Star Competition...

    Thanks for the info BerenN!

    Is my habit to read every details in the terms and conditions. Stick out tongue

    Aww looks like one entry per contestant. Well since the deadline is months away there is plenty of time to create a masterpiece for IFX cover.

    Re: Be Our Cover Star Competition...

    If one was feeling especially prolific, would we be allowed to submit more than one entry? Or is it one per person.

    Thank you!

    Re: Be Our Cover Star Competition...

    Is the cover image file with the print markings and the title and such just a sample that will be changed?  I can't help noticing it says it's for the January issue and the closing date is January?
