Call for budding artists to design covers of Coquetdale magazine

A parish magazine is looking for local artists to design the covers of its editions to be published in 2015.

Over the Bridges, produced by the local churches and community for free distribution throughout Rothbury and Upper Coquetdale, has announced its 2015 Cover Competition which is open to all of its readers who live, work or visit in Coquetdale.

They are looking for 10 wonderful cover designs to enhance the 10 2015 editions of Over the Bridges – five to be created by young people aged 17 and under, and five by adults over 18.

The entries will be judged by a panel of local experts and the 10 winners will be announced in the February edition and will each receive a WHSmith’s £10 gift token.

An exhibition of all the competition entries will be held in Rothbury later in the spring.

Entries must be the original work (not photocopies or sent by email) of the artists submitting them, in any creative medium, but no larger than A4 size.

Covers for Over the Bridges are printed in black on coloured background and artists should bear in mind that the publishers need to be able to scan prior to printing multiple copies and their designs must reflect this requirement.

Only one entry per artist is permitted and you must include your name, age, address and contact details, if possible on the reverse side.

Entries should be submitted to The Rectory, Rothbury, Morpeth, NE65 7TL.

The closing date for all entries is Monday, January 5.

Anyone wanting more information should email or telephone 01669 621954.
