The British Journal of Aesthetics has recently launched its 2015 Cover Design Competition inviting students on full-time undergraduate or graduate courses at art and design schools to participate.
Every year the British Journal of Aesthetics asks students to design a cover for the journal, which is published by Oxford University Press, both in print and online. This year’s theme is “Art in the digital age“.
The winning design will be used on the cover of the journal 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, free of charge.
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.
The British Journal of Aesthetics is highly regarded as an international forum for debate in philosophical aesthetics and the philosophy of art.
