Help Design The December Edition Of The Kugali Magazine

To celebrate the Christmas edition of the Kugali Magazine, Kugali is running a competition inviting artists to design the front cover for the next edition of the Kugali Magazine.

Winner gets $125 in cash, $100 for 2nd place and $75 for 3rd place. Here are the front covers from the two previous editions as well as the characters that are set to feature in this 3rd edition.

Finally, here’s a picture of our Kugali Masks (including them in your art is optional). Plenty of inspiration for you to come up with your design.

Now just a few rules:

  1. Post your entry on Facebook or Instagram and tag Kugali in the post.
  2. Use the hashtag #KugaliMagazine
  3. Winner will be decided by popular vote. To make things easy, we’ll equate this to likes.
  4. The deadline is the 3oth of November.

For more design inspiration, check out the slideshow below with artwork by Juni Ba.

That’s all folks. Happy drawing!
