Nobody ever became a famous artist hiding their art away. If you (or people around you) think you have some artistic talent, give it a shot! With 100 pages, you have a good shot at being published.




This book contest project is open to artists living in Cambridge and Guelph or the small towns surrounding it. If I get enough responses I will make a book for both Cambridge AND Guelph (KW has been covered already, other cities may follow)

You must be over 18 to submit artwork, or I will have to get permission from your guardian.

You must be the creator and copyright holder of all artwork submitted (fan art not permitted). You give me permission to use your work for the project and generate publicity for the project. You will otherwise retain your copyright.You must also be a reasonable person who doesn't make my life more difficult than it has to be or get me into legal trouble.This project is for fun, let's keep it a fun project.

All artwork should be as clear and nice as possible. I can fix some things in photoshop but CLEAR, LARGE, photos make my life easier. I can fix squareness if it is close.

THE BIGGER THE BETTER. PRINT NEEDS LARGE IMAGES. Anything under 1200 pixels across or 400kb will be automatically rejected. Print will be 300dpi, format for that if you can.
