The British Journal of Aesthetics (BJA) holds a competition each year 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 overall cover design includes an image, generally a black & white photograph of a sculpture or a detail from a print. It is normally but not necessarily a monochrome image. But 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 2014. The BJA reserves the right to verify eligibility.
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 2014, together with the entrant’s contact details. The closing date is 15 June 2014. Entries which do not meet the entry requirements and entries which are received after the closing date will not be considered.
