Calling all artists, painters, sketchers, and doodlers!
The Oxcart is holding a contest to see whose artwork will be featured on the cover of their annual magazine. The rules of the contest are simple. First, create an original piece of artwork using any medium; this can be anything from brush painting, colored pencils, tapestry, doodles, even finger painting. Although photography is allowed, other artistic mediums are preferred. Next, scan or photograph your completed masterpiece, and make the image into a 300 DPI JPEG that is no larger than 5 mb (if you’re having trouble with this remember: Google has all of the answers). Finally, give your artwork a title and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The last day for submissions is January 13th.
For those who don’t know, the Oxcart is a literary magazine published once a year by the student editing team and their advisor, Dr. Learman of the English Department. This academic magazine features prose, poetry, and artwork, all of which are created by students of Adrian College. Submissions for the magazine are accepted in the fall semester and the earliest weeks of the spring semester. The magazine itself is published in late spring, just in time for Ribbons of Excellence Day. This year for the cover, the staff decided to try something different.
“The cover art is usually something that we pick from our art submissions, but this year we’ve decided to have a specific contest for it” says Natalie Dunn of the editing staff, “Any submissions that we get for the cover contest may still be considered for the magazine, even if they don’t get selected for the cover”
So what are you waiting for? Grab your brushes and pencils and get to work!
