COVERS:

We do not make promises, or guarantees for cover selection. We do not and will not accept payment to be on the cover. The cover image is collectively decided upon after reviewing ALL submissions for the month after the closing date. 

How can I increase my chances of being selected for a cover?

  1. We look for covers that are in the above mentioned formatting and that best match the theme.

  2. We only accept portrait images for the cover, so be sure to provide a variety upon submission.

  3. We prefer images with a decent amount of negative space to allow for text. It's our rule of thumb to avoid covering the artwork in the image and like to keep it simple.

  4. We like receiving 5 different images of the same set. But you may submit more if you can provide us with a Google Drive or Dropbox link.

  5. Think outside of the box!

  6. You can review past covers by clicking the 'issues' link in our menu bar. 

  7. Yes, we accept group images for covers.
