Submit your illustrations for the cover of the Technical Communication journal

Beginning with the February 2016 issue of Technical Communication, the cover of the journal will be a juried space for graphic artists. Each issue will offer the opportunity for a theme-related submission of diagrams, drawings, collages, infographics, cartoons, comic strips, or brief graphic narratives. The theme for the cover of the February 2016 issue is “The Future of Technical Communication.”

For this inaugural effort, please submit your work as a high-resolution (300 dpi) jpg file by 1 October 2015, to tceditor@stc.org with a brief explanation (100-200 words) of how your work addresses the theme. Submissions will be anonymously reviewed, and a jury of peers will select each issue’s cover. Honorable mentions will be published inside the journal.
