Winner takes home a Sony DSLR with start-up lenses, a Sony NEX-7 Compact Camera and a brand new PS Vita with start-up games! (wow!)
It’s hard work coming up with covers for Access, so we’re going to take a break and let you design next issue’s cover instead.
The theme for the issue will be ‘Gaming takes over the World’. You can enter a photograph, illustration, digital graphics, block of text or pretty much anything else that reflects the theme and makes a great cover.
In addition to the amazing prizes mentioned above, the winner will also have their design featured on the internationally collected Don't Panic Poster distributed inside the iconic Don’t Panic Pack.
On April 5th 2012: the competition closing date, the entries with the highest number of votes will be presented to Access Magazine’s expert panel. If they deem the entries to be of a high enough standard, the winning cover design will be chosen alongside a selection of the 'best of the rest' who will feature inside the magazine.
Below are the two previous Access Magazine covers, although your design need not look anything like these. Before submitting an entry, please familiarize yourself with the guidelines below.
Please take the Access masthead into consideration but do not attempt to include or incorporate it into your entry. The title of the magazine and the PlayStation shapes stay in the same place for every issue, so they'll need to fit over your image in a way that doesn't obscure important details.
- Entries accepted from UK and Ireland residents only
