is holding a contest to design the cover for his Italian SciFi literature magazine 2000AnniDuri
It combines comics and written stories created by himself and others in an anthology format.
You can submit an unlimited number of entries, but the deadline is February 14th
He's looking for retro/pulp-style artwork, preferably related in some fashion to one or more of the stories featured in the issue. Covers have featured only black-and-white art in the past, but he is opening the contest to color entries as well, though he mentions that he would like artists to consider limited poster-style palettes and retro color schemes, in fitting with the tone of the magazine.
Examples of past covers are shown in the full information.
(This is his first contest for the cover, though!)
The first prize is the cover, but he plans to feature standouts among the non-winning entries in the magazine as well, or possibly even use them as covers for future issues!
If you're interested, check out the full info at:komixefantasy.deviantart.com/a…
It includes descriptions of the stories included in the issue as well as more info on the rules of the contest itself.
(remember that this is for an Italian magazine, so be prepared for a bit of strange wording ala google translate)
Also, If you're interested in helping to promote this group or dieslepunk art in general,
feel free to send the group a note about becoming a contributor!
I'd personally love to see this group become more active in the future,
but for that we need active admins with the spare time to dedicate to maintaining the group!
