We are now accepting submissions for our 2017 Cover Art Contest

CONTEST OPEN: January 1, 2017

DEADLINE: February 20, 2017

$10 Entry Fee

The contest winner will have their work published on the front cover of JuxtaProse volume 11, our second anniversary issue, to be released digitally and in print. The expected release date is March 6th. The winner will receive a personal interview with the JuxtaProse Staff to be published on the website and blog, as well as three print copies of the issue. Up to three additional entries, each by a different artist, may be awarded “Honorable Mention” status, for which they will receive web space to have their artist statements, bios, and the honored artwork featured on the JuxtaProse website and blog. All finalists will be considered for publication, regardless of honorable mention status. Artwork which has peen previously published is eligible, so long as it has not appeared in another literary journal (a publication which primarily exists to publish fiction, poetry, or essays).

Entries should consist of 1-3 TIFF files and may be in any medium (2D or 3D). There is a $10 entry entry fee. Authors may enter multiple times but will be charged a separate entry fee each time. Applicants are encouraged, but not required, to include a cover letter and an artistic statement of no more than 50 words. The deadline for submissions is February 20th, 2017 at 11:59 pm MST.

JuxtaProse is an Idaho-based literary magazine that publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art from around the world. Previous contributors include National Book Award finalist and Pulitzer Prize nominees, over 20 contributors to the Best American Poetry series, Nationally Exhibiting Artists, and award winning writers from locales as varied as Scotland and Israel. Alongside these established voices, we make a concentrated effort to publish the work of emerging talents — including previously unpublished writers, artists, and students. Each of our quarterly issues reaches a readership of over 5,000 and continues to grow. Literary editor John Fox’ blog recently ranked JuxtaProse number 14 in a list of the best online literary magazines. Although JuxtaProse is primarily an online publication, we publish a print edition of our anniversary issue each spring.

Entries which do not abide by these submission guidelines may be subject to disqualification. All entry fees are non-refundable.
