So I'm going to be put up a couple of cover art challenges in the posts that follow/precede this one.
Here's what you need to know.
The deadline is September 22.
It's more challenging this time because in most cases you're being asked to match the style and feel of existing covers.
The technical stuff. The covers must be vertical (rectangle-shaped) and must be a minimum width of 1,400 pixels. Recommended size is approximately 1,600 pixels wide by 2,400 pixels tall. JPEG (JPEG / JPG) or TIFF (TIF / TIFF) ONLY.
I will pay $75.00 a piece for the winning cover (not including the price of any photos that must be purchased) and the artist of course gets a cover credit inside the book.
The photos can be submitted to the contest with the watermark.
****Because I have an existing account at Shutterstock, I would prefer that you choose from their library, but I'm not going to make that a hard and fast rule if someone comes up with a really amazing image for a winning cover. ***
You submit your cover art to the email address on my contact page. Make sure you let me know what name you want your work posted under. http://www.joshlanyon.com/contact.html
Your work will be posted on this blog site and then readers and other interested parties will vote for their choice for the final cover over the next week (I need this all finished up by the end of September) HOWEVER THE FINAL VOTE IS MINE. And I can be picky and eccentric as regular viewers know.
If you have any other questions, go ahead and in the comment section below.
