Cover Photography

EVENT 48/2. Photo by Patrick Conaty.

We Want Your Photos

We’re looking for photos that are striking, inviting, compelling, photos that make the viewer look twice. Please look at our previous covers, and read this blog post for details on what kind of images we look for. We are currently only accepting photography from BC-based artists, but we welcome submissions from both established and emerging photographers.

Photo Specifications:

  • Landscape format, 9″H x 12.375″W (the larger the better, so we have some options for where to crop and place the spine)
  • PDF, TIFF or PSD file (for a PC)
  • CMYK colour
  • 300 dpi
  • Please note that we use photos as wrap-around covers, so half the photo appears on the front cover and half on the back cover. There should be sufficient negative space for placing title and text.
