Call for Cover Art:

On Pol is looking for a new cover! Your work could be the next cover for UVic's one and only political science journal, we have been using the same cover art since 2003 so we are looking to revamp. Your work could stick around for another 10 years: political science majors aren't particularly artsy.


Requirements below:

  • 6 by 9 inch, with journal name (On Politics), journal logo, in colour. If you want to extend the design to the back cover, this is possible, but please consult with the EiC.
  • Retain key components of current On Pol cover format so that people can find the journal
  • This is a publication that goes to print, so make sure that your submission is good for digital and physical.

What we want: something eye-popping, non-partisan, anti-oppressive (see our solidarity statement for details), but still academic.

Accepting proposals by email until Feb 28th, 2021. 20% of pay is sent on acceptance, 80% on completion (March 20th, 2021). Please include portfolio/relevant work in your submission.

Requirements: some design consistency with current cover. Follow-up questions, email us!
