2019 Capital City Cover Art Contest



2019 Capital City Cover Art Contest
Sponsored by Christy! Studios

We are looking for a tasteful, full-color, artistic rendition of our beloved 16th president,
Abraham Lincoln, for the cover of our upcoming 2019 edition of Capital City Visitor.

Who can enter: Any artist

Subject matter: Abraham Lincoln

Entry deadline: All entries must be received by Friday, Feb. 1, 2019, at 5 pm.

Rules: Entries must be submitted as high resolution digital .jpg image at 300 dpi (Please, no camera phone photos, as the dpi is typically not high enough). Files should be saved as artist name and image title (i.e., “Doe, Jane - Artwork Title”). If your work is selected as a finalist you may be contacted by Illinois Times to provide us with the original work of art for a display event, but the artwork would be returned to you at the conclusion of the event.

Publication/show rights: It is assumed that the entrant is the owner of the copyright of each artwork submitted. Permission to show winning art in the gallery and publication in Illinois Times is assumed.

Showcasing winners:  The top 20-30 entries will be showcased in a gallery event at the Springfield Art Association and featured in a regular issue of the Illinois Times. The gallery event will coincide with the release of the 2019 Capital City Visitor.
