There's nothing more satisfying than identifying fresh talent.

ArbeitenZeit Media, in preparation for the launch of a Young Adult book series by new author Pen Fairchild, is holding a college-level student art contest to find the most-effective cover for Royal Progress, first title in the series.

Publisher Robert Hewitt received a fine-arts education, which he used as a stepping stone to successful careers in graphic design and public relations before starting ArbeitenZeit. He’s mentored various young artists in their transition from school courses to a professional career, and with this contest it’s his aim to meet two goals: find a great cover for a promising new book; and encourage young artists to focus on career directions in which they can profitably use their skills.

The contest opens September 1, 2015, and closes October 15, 2015. Semi-finalists will be announced on October 30, and the winner on November 15. Top prize is $1,000.00. There is no entry fee. Eligibility is limited to students eighteen years of age and older enrolled in and actively attending art classes in a U.S. college or university or in an accredited art school. Full details may be found at

“There’s nothing more satisfying than identifying fresh talent,” says Robert Hewitt. “I hope this contest will start a lot of students thinking about cover design as a viable part of a professional career and that we’ll have entries from all the leading art programs.”

ArbeitenZeit Media is a young publishing company that focuses on releasing useful and/or entertaining titles in the formats in which readers are most likely to access them.
