The overall cover design includes an image, generally a black & white photograph of a sculpture or a detail from a print. It is normally but not necessarily a monochrome image. Entries to the competition will consist in a .jpeg or .tiff containing an image, and a cover design incorporating the image, which can be assembled using a template that can be downloaded from the BJA website (available in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop).
The resolution of the image must be at least 300dpi. There is no restriction on the use of colour. The winning entry will showcase the distinctive style of the artist, while remaining consistent with the series of covers as a whole.
Each entrant will retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in the image submitted (including moral rights)
