Competition: Design Campaign a 50th birthday cover

Campaign turns 50 this year. To celebrate, we'll be unveiling a special Asia-themed 50th birthday magazine issue at Spikes Asia, and we want YOU to design the cover.

Competition: Design Campaign a 50th birthday cover

We’re delighted to be celebrating Campaign’s 50th birthday in 2018. In commemoration, our team at Campaign Asia-Pacific is compiling a special print issue that we’ll unveil at Spikes Asia in September.

We can promise it’ll be an issue worth reading, rounding up 50 amazing stories from the Asia Pacific region including brilliant people, brands, work and moments that have shaped and continue to influence the industry.

Because we want it to look as good as possible, we are inviting agencies to enter a competition to design us a front cover. The winners will grace the front page and feature on every newsstand at Spikes. They'll also receive two free delegate passes to Spikes Asia 2018 for two team members. The runners-up will feature in a spread inside the magazine, and all will be displayed in an online gallery.

Entry criteria

Would your creatives like to take on the challenge? The brief is as simple as designing a cover image around the headline: ‘Campaign at 50: 50 Asian stories to celebrate’. Beyond that, it can be as imaginative as you like!

The deadline for entry is Friday, 24 August.

The cover design must fit a blank cover template with the Campaign logo across the top, as pictured above. To be sent an example of a cover template, email me at olivia.parker@haymarket.asia

The dimensions for the cover design we'd need are as follows:

  • Print trim size: 230mm x 280mm
  • Bleed size: 236mm (w) x 286mm (h)
  • Format: press quality pdf

We’d also need a horizontal version for our website:

  • Size: 1280px x 320px, 72 dpi
  • Format: Photoshop or png

Any questions? Email them along with any finished designs to olivia.parker@haymarket.asia

Good luck!
