This popular contest will return for our Spring Edition 2023. The winner is featured on the cover of the Winter Edition 2022. Will your image be the next cover of Clean Fiction Magazine?

What Are The Requirements?

1) The artwork must include bold color blocking. This makes the cover easier to enjoy when it is displayed in a tiny format, such as on a person’s phone. View past Clean Fiction covers for the preferred style, but feel free to use this style loosely. 

2) The artwork must include a figure in modest attire. This could be a man, woman, or creature. 

Obviously, if the figure is a creature, only humanoid creatures must wear modest attire.


3) The theme of the Spring Edition cover is “New Life”. This topic is as broad as you would like to make it. Feel free to be as creative with it as you’d like. The border will be a medium purple.

And, that’s it! We wanted to leave the requirements as broad as possible in order to give artists the opportunity to flex their creative muscles. Depending on the number of entries, all entrants or staff-chosen finalists will be displayed for the Clean Fiction Community to vote on a winner.



How Do I Enter?

The submission period is January 30th-February 11th. Email your submission to along with the following information: Your Name, The Name of the Artwork, Social Media Handle/Art Website, and an Email Address (for contact purposes only). Voting will be February 13th-25th and the Grand Prize Winner will be announced along with the Cover Reveal on March 1st.


What is the Grand Prize? $50*
