The culmination of the County Arts Office Writers Mentoring Programme carried out in the Spring of this year under the stewardship of Noel Monahan and Alan McMonagle, will be the launch of a collection of poetry and prose work by the programme participants.
Alan McMonagle & Noel Monahan
In a slight departure from normal procedure we ask the programme participants to decide the title of the collection, the winning title was ‘Ring around the Moon, and in order to maximise the creative input of as many Longford talents as possible we would now like to ask our visual artists to produce a design concept and image for the cover for the collection.
We will offer €250.00 prize and a design credit for the winning submission.
It will not be necessary to design the cover of the book, this will be the responsibility of the graphic designer who is engaged to manage the overall design and layout of the book.
The collection will be launched in The Canal Studio, Backstage Theatre, Longford at 7.30pm on National Poetry Day, October 2nd.
Rules of Entry:
1. All submissions must be by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be marked; Anthology Cover Design Proposal
2. Each proposed design should be the original work of the artist.
3. Proposals should be emailed as a jpg. 4. Proposals will be accepted in any visual style or medium as long as it is suitable as a book cover design. Remember it is not necessary to design the actual cover just submit a concept and a design or art work based on the concept which, in turn, should be informed by the title.
5. The design submission should be accompanied by a written description no longer than 200 words.
6. The design should be informed by the collection title Ring around the Moon.
7. All submissions should be received by the Arts Office by e-mail no later that 5.00pm on Friday 29th August.
We look forward to your proposals.
