Would you like to see your artwork on the cover of the magazine? Read on to find out how you can…

Create the cover of Advanced Photoshop

We’d like to see what you can do with our cover. That’s why we’re challenging you to produce a piece of cover artwork for Advanced Photoshop. We’ll feature the best in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and our favourite will win a paid commission to create a tutorial explaining how their artwork was created.

To enter, all you have to do is produce a piece of fantastic Photoshop artwork. But before you get started, you’ll need to bear in mind the following:


  • Your artwork can be in any style you choose – photomanipulation, graphic design, digital painting or illustration.
  • Your artwork should be 240mm wide by 300mm high at 300 dpi. But please send us a low-res JPEG first – if you make it into the final selection, we’ll drop you a line to ask for the high-res artwork.
  • Your artwork must be an original piece that you haven’t submitted to any other magazine.
  • Your artwork cannot include nudity or fan art of copyrighted characters.
  • You’ll need to leave room for us to include the title of the magazine, its barcode, and some text to explain what’s in the issue.
  • Make it attention-grabbing and with a strong focal point!

To enter, simply send your artwork to with the subject line ‘Cover competition’. Please include your name, full address and contact details with your entry. The deadline for competition entries is 27 November 2014.
