COMPETITION – Panel Magazine – Cover Design

Calling all artists, writers, poets, and photographers: Do you want to see your artwork on the cover of the next issue of Panel Magazine. If so, check below...

Hopefully, we’ve had the pleasure to meet you at the Painters Palace on Saturday (or rather you’re here right now with us celebrating the moment and reading this when you get home). In collaboration with my friends and literary conspirators, we’ve put together the second issue of Panel Magazine (now live on our website, go check it out!). We’re very proud of this issue, and we hope you enjoy it too.

If you missed out on the party, a little bit about us. We publish contemporary literature, poetry, art, photography, and creative non-fiction from the Central and Eastern European region. We are now open to submissions for all written work, so don’t be shy and submit.

For the artists among you want to make an exciting announcement. In collaboration with the Painters Palace, we’re running an art contest to get your work featured on our next cover; runners-up will get featured in the magazine.

We open the special call for artists from Central and Eastern Europe to submit their art works for the next issue of Panel magazine. The best works will make the cover of issue # 3 and get to illustrate the prose features of the magazine.

Read the guidelines and participate.
