Euphony Spring 2011 Cover Contest

Euphony’s Spring issue is currently in production, and we need cover art! Anybody who does photography and other art media is welcome to send us submissions for our cover contest. The requirements are simple: 1) We’re looking for artwork somehow related to the theme of “Spring” (no black and white submissions, please); 2) Submissions should be able to crop to 414 X 630 pixels. You may send a low-resolution sample for now, and if we’re interested we’ll contact you about a high-resolution image. Photography/art of different dimensions is also fine, but will be cropped to our discretion.

The selected work will grace the cover of our upcoming issue, and the artist will receive a publication credit with Euphony. Take a look at our past issues (links in the above menu) for an idea of what we’ve chosen in the past.

Interested in participating? Submissions accepted until May 11th to euphony@uchicago.edu.

Good luck!
