Hello again everyone! Well here's another part of our chapbook contest I am pleased to announce. We are holding a contest for the artwork for the cover of the Amateur Writing Contest Chapbook, titled "Bad Dreams & New Screams". This chapbook will be a double sided chapbook similar to how "Riding the Bullet" was laid out. Thus we will need two pieces of artwork, themed around the titles. One for Bad Dreams and the other for New Screams. The winners will receive a free copy of the chapbook and either $200 cash or $400 of store credit. Below are the rules and the procedure for submitting your entries.


Only 1 entry per title, per person.
Artwork should ideally be in full color but B&W can be considered
Artwork must be sized 5.5" x 8.5" (add 1/4 inch to all sides if your image "bleeds")
Artwork should be appropriate to the title ("side") it is submitted for
Please label artwork with the title side it goes with AND your name (example: Bad Dreams - Dan Hocker.jpg)
Submit all entries to my email address danhocker@cemeterydance.com
Contestants will have until June 24th to send in their submissions. All submissions recieved after that date will not be accepted.
Absolutely no copyright infringement

At the end of the submission window, the Cemetery Dance staff will pick the top 5 pieces of artwork for each side. Then a vote for each side's artwork will be posted to these forums for the forum community to pick choose the cover artwork.

Good Luck everyone!

Made an update to the rules, as I forgot to mention that the artwork should be full color.

Just and update here. I'm going to extend the entry time through July 4th in hope for some more entries. We've gotten some good ones so far, but a few more wouldn't hurt. Plus I'll be off next week and won't be able to make the necessary arrangements to move onto the next phase of the artwork contest.
