For our Fall 2012 issue on The Female Conscience, we had long discussions (and some arguments) about what exactly should appear on the cover. We eventually arrived at The Halo Project as our final choice.
But with a theme this multi-faceted, we would never describe it as the absolute perfect choice. It’s just one version or perspective of The Female Conscience. With that in mind, we’d like to open up our cover to your experience or idea of The Female Conscience. We do have a few ground rules.
- The VQR logo must remain at the top of the cover, at its usual size. (Color may be modified.) The white border must also be retained. (Download an image template here.)
- Cover lines (text) do not have to be added to the cover, but if you choose to do so, you must use only the text that currently appears on the Fall 2012 cover. The font does not have to exactly match, but if you’re curious, the two fonts used are Ziggurat and Whitney.
- Your cover must be appropriate for all ages and not break any laws.
- Humor is OK; unkindness is not.
- The cover should be accompanied by a brief artist’s statement of no more than 200 words.
- All covers and statements should be posted to the VQR Facebook Wall to be eligible for the contest.
- Any covers submitted outside these guidelines will be removed from our Facebook Wall and not considered.
- Deadline to post your cover to our Facebook Wall: Oct. 28, 2012.
The VQR staff will review all entries and make an announcement of the winner no later than Nov. 2, on Facebook and at this blog. The winner receives a 1-year subscription to VQR for themselves plus a friend.
We look forward to seeing your covers!
