Australian Creative. The cover. How would you like to create it?
Here's what to do. It's a competition. So make it the best work you've done. This is Australian Creative. So make it the best work you can do. It's the annual (stays around for a whole year) so make it the best work you'll ever do.
What are the rules? There's only one really. Our masthead has to be clearly visible across the top. Keep that area uncluttered and remember that there will be titles on the page. Otherwise, the more creative the better. It's your chance to do work for a client who genuinely wants you to run wild and free.
We hope to run wild and free also. We'll be looking at the year's best in a new way. We'll be talking about what's next in a new way. And we'll be getting creative with how we present these two halves to you.
Promote what the annual is about – the year's best work and the best of what's ahead – on your cover if you want to.
Get your entries in by September 25th by email (maximum file size 2MB). Include a description of how the work was created and a bit of a blurb about you (and anyone else who needs a credit). Don't forget to add a contact person and contact details. We'll get in touch with the finalists for high res files suitable for publishing. Send to email@example.com. Write cover competition in the subject line.

Close your eyes and say, "Just do it." What do you see? Yes, me too...the Nike tick logo. But hammering brand image statements into people's heads is considered so yesterday now. Is it? Let's find out...
