The cover is for front and back. Each page will be a standard 8 1/2″ by 11″ however it is unknown at this time what effect the binding will impose on this space. The cover can be two parts like separate panels of a continuing image. Alternatively, the images can be separate but strongly related by style and content. Otherwise, there are no restrictions on style, content or theme.
Another consideration is the nameplate or logo which will appear on every edition. The logo is a standard proprietary image which will be superimposed on your image. Its dimensions are 4 1/2″ by 2 1/2″. Its placement, in the upper right corner of the page, will give it a margin of 1/4″ from the edge. Check the Publisher’s Prototype for an example of the effect of the logo on the cover image.
Please submit high resolution digital copies of the cover images. Provide biographical information and any caption that you want to appear on the masthead page. If the images are not exactly proportional to the 8 1/2 x 11 format, they will be cropped at the discretion of Event Horizon. You retain most rights to the images. Event Horizon has the right to show the cover exactly as it appears on the issue, including the nameplate, in future publications e.g. annuals or anthologies. Submissions that are not used for the inaugural issue can be kept for consideration for future issues or withdrawn at the discretion of the artist.
