Art Week Cover Competition

Art Week Cover Competition

Art Week is approaching and to celebrate, Critic wants artists to send us your artwork. We will choose a piece to go on the cover of Critic for the week, plus you get prizes!

The magazine prints at 300ppi so please send high-resolution images. If your work is digital you need to send it at 300ppi, not a small standard screen resolution. If your work is physical, send us a photo of it and we can take a high-quality scan of the winning artwork.

The dimensions for the cover are: 200mm x 265mm (with an extra padding space that is about 3mm wide and gets chopped off at the printers)

If you have any questions/difficulties with the sizing or print resolution part we’re happy to help, write to

The finalists will be printed in Critic as part of 2017’s Arty issue.

Send your work to by Monday August 7.
