Cover Art Ideas for Start
We are excited to feature the work of Oregon writers and artists in the pages of Oregon Humanities. The cover of our spring issue is a photograph by Portlander Delaney Allen, “Self Portrait No. 9,” from his series Painting a Portrait. You can see more of his work at delaneyallen.com.
If you’re an Oregon artist and have work that we might consider for the Summer 2014 issue, on the theme “Start,” we’d love to know about it. Please familiarize yourself with our publication, then send us the following by June 13, 2014:
- a high-resolution digital image (300 dpi at 8˝ x 10˝; scans or photographs, JPEG or TIFF)
- your name, the title of the work, the type of media, as well as contact information (email and phone number)
Please consider the constraints of a magazine cover (e.g., vertical orientation, nameplate, and cover lines). We are most interested in works by Oregon-based artists.
Call for Posts: Start
For the summer 2014 issue of Oregon Humanities magazine, we want Posts submissions on the theme “Start.” Tell us your stories about good starts, bad starts, false starts, late starts, head starts, flying starts, running starts, jump starts; about starting over, starting from scratch, and starting on the wrong foot.
