The Great Cumbrian Cthulhu Cover Art Competition


The Great Cumbrian Cthulhu Cover Art Competition!
Win the chance to have YOUR art on the cover of Cumbrian Cthulhu!

Cumbrian Cthulhu is a fully illustrated collection of short horror stories set in the English Lake District county of Cumbria  and based on H.P. Lovecraft’s legendary Cthulhu Mythos. We are publishing a series of paperback anthologies, followed by a deluxe hardback edition containing all stories together, entitled ‘Complete Short Stories Vols 1-4’

Alongside this we will be publishing ‘Cumbrian Cthulhu Art & History,’ a full colour coffee table style book containing all our CC art in large detail, with a full history of the project and those involved. Our contributors very kindly give their work and time for free, so that all profits from the CC books can be donated to Lake District Search And Mountain Rescue (LDSAMRA.)
One of the CC project’s other main aims is to encourage and publish new writers and artists. With this in mind we would like to announce a new competition open to all fantasy and horror artists!  


 We are looking for the best full colour artwork inspired both by the Cumbrian region and by the Cthulhu mythos weird fiction.
Any medium is acceptable, from scanned in drawings and paintings to digitally altered photographs.
Don't worry about titles and text as this will be added later by the Cumbrian Cthulhu editorship.
As long as it fits a Lakeland Lovecraft theme, the scope for entries is completely open ended.
You may enter as many times as you wish and all entries will be proudly displayed in our website Gallery. 


*Selected finalists will have their submissions and a brief biography published in the ‘Cumbrian Cthulhu Art & History’ book. *One winner will have their submission featured as the cover art for ‘Complete Short Stories Vols 1-4’ and will have their own (non CC) artwork and full biography featured in the ‘Cumbrian Cthulhu Art & History’ book. The winner will also receive a FREE hardback edition of 'Cumbrian Cthulhu - Complete Short Stories Vols 1-4' 


*All submission artwork should be sent as attachments to the email address below, also any further queries to the same email please.
*The final deadline for competition submissions will be 1st June 2014.

*Members of the existing Cumbrian Cthulhu team will serve as competition Judges.

By entering the competition you are allowing Cumbrian Cthulhu to display the art on our website, and if you a finalist: in our forthcoming ‘Art & History’ book and if first place winner,to be featured on the cover of 'Cumbrian Cthulhu. Complete Stories Volume 1-4'. Cumbrian Cthulhu prides itself on being a relaxed and friendly project.
