Four days and counting for those seeking cover design fame

The chance to bathe in the Maggies limelight of award-wining cover design is quickly passing with entries closing this Friday 5 August. And, as long as you are in possession of a snazzy cover and can operate a mouse, entering is easy, “just choose a cover, tell us why, and press go”.

The awards, an initiative of iSubscribe and supported by the Magazine Publishers Association, are open to any magazine cover dated from 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011. Categories include Business & Trade; Fashion, Health & Beauty; Food & Wine; House & Garden; Lifestyle; Science, Technology & Nature; Specialist; Sports; Travel; and Youth & Pop Culture.

All entries will be judged by industry heavyweights with judges particularly on the hunt for covers that resonate most strongly with the general public, encapsulate the passion of the subject matter, capture the spirit of the previous year and provoke the most debate.

While the judges might be there to whittle down the entries into a shortlist, it’s the discerning public that will make the final decision on who the supreme winner will be.
