British Journal of Aesthetics 2013 Cover Design Competition

The British Journal of Aesthetics is currently holding its 2013 cover design competition. This global competition offers all full-time, university-level art students the opportunity to design a journal cover for the October 2013 issue. This year’s theme is “form and function.”

The winning design will be used on the cover of the October 2013 issue of the BJA and the issue will carry a half-page about the winner and his or her work. The winner will receive 5 printed copies of the issue featuring their design, and will also be invited to choose £150-worth of books published by Oxford University Press (OUP), free of charge.

The 2013 British Journal of Aesthetics Cover Competition is Now Underway

To be eligible to enter the British Journal of Aesthetics 2013 cover design competition, you must be enrolled on a full-time undergraduate or graduate course at an art school on 30 January 2013.

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. Entries to the competition will consist in a .jpeg or .tiff containing an image, and a cover design incorporating the image, which can be assembled using a template that can be downloaded from the official website (available in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop).

The issue will carry a half-page about the winner and his or her work. The winner will also receive 5 printed copies of the issue featuring their design, and will be invited to choose £150-worth of books published by Oxford University Press (OUP), free of charge. The winner and runners-up will be notified by email in June 2013. Runners-up will be displayed on the official website with the winning design.
