Art Contest

April 25, 2011

We are looking for art for a number of applications here at Flying Island Press.

Banner/Badge Art – While our current banner is pretty, we don’t feel that it screams Flying Island Press. We also don’t have a badge suitable for trading with other sites. We aim to rectify that.

Specifications – Send us art appropriate for both a banner (1024px by 100px) and a badge (200px by 200px) in either .jpg or .png format. It should include the Phrase “Flying Island Press” and may also incorporate the tagline “Taking Fiction Where You Want To Go”, though the latter isn’t necessary. It should also capture the spirit of our magazine. To get to know us, you may want to buy a back issue or two and get a good feel.

Send that as an attachment to editor at flyingislandpress.com with the subject line “Banner Art Contest”. Deadline is May 31st, with a winner to be announced June 15th.

Steampunk Cover – We’re putting out a very special steampunk themed issue later this summer. We feel that a special issue deserves a very special cover. The art should be appropriate for all ages as far as content is concerned.

Specifications – The cover should be 600px by 800px. Please leave a space approximately 200px high at the top for our masthead and 125px wide down the left hand side for us to list story titles. Please see this cover for visual cues.

Send us the .jpg to editor at flyingislandpress.com with the subject “Steampunk Cover Contest” Deadline is May 31st with a winner to be announced June 15th.

General Cover Contest – We’d also love to give you the opportunity to create a cover for a future issue. Science fiction and fantasy themes or a blend are welcome. The art should be appropriate for all ages as far as content is concerned.

Specifications – The cover should be 600px by 800px. Please leave a space approximately 200px high at the top for our masthead and 125px wide down the left hand side for us to list story titles. Please see this cover for visual cues.

Send us the .jpg to editor at flyingislandpress.com with the subject “Flagship Cover Contest” Deadline is June 30th, with a winner to be announced by July 16th.

Prize – If we select your art, we will credit you and provide you with one year’s subscription to our magazine and assorted swag of our choosing.
