Cover Art Ideas for Harm

The cover of our Summer 2017 issue, Claim, is a photograph by David Falconer, which accompanies the article "A City's Lifeblood." If you're an artist and have work that we might consider for the Fall/Winter 2017 issue, on the theme "Harm," we'd love to know about it. Please familiarize yourself with our publication, then send us the following by October 16, 2017:

  • 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)
  • Description of the relationship of the image to the theme

Please consider the constraints of a magazine cover, such as vertical orientation, nameplate, and cover lines. We are most interested in works by Oregon-based artists.

Submissions can be sent to or by post to Oregon Humanities magazine, 921 SW Washington St., Suite 150, Portland, OR 97205.
