Be on the Cover of Hey Pēpi
PHOTOGRAPHY Kirsty Stone @thesearethegoldendays
Thousands of māmā and whānau could see you or your work on the cover of our book!
Ahead of the publication of our second edition of Hey Pēpi, our free magazine all about growing, raising, and nurturing your tamariki from birth to two years old, we’re looking for the perfect cover image to represent what it means to welcome your pēpi in Aotearoa.
Perhaps you have a photo of your pēpi that you would like to submit or you may be a photographer/artist/illustrator and would like to enter your beautiful work to be showcased to mothers New Zealand-wide. Not only will the winning submission be on the cover and seen by thousands but the entrant will be featured in a one-page interview in the publication and on our Soteria social media as well.
Cover design brief:
- The cover image may be a photo of a baby or it could be an abstract photo or illustration that communicates the message of ‘Welcoming a Pēpi’.
- The photo/design will need to be aligned with the Soteria brand which is: minimalist, authentic, real, relatable, uses natural/neutral tones, organic, earth, fresh, light and inviting.
- The size to be filled is 132mmx152mm (portrait) and the image will need to allow space for the overlay of cover text ’sells’. The final photo or design will need to be supplied 300DPI high resolution at full size.
How to submit your entry:
Email your design or image to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Cover Competition’ in the subject line. If your image is selected, we will email you for the full size, high res version.
In the email, tell us who you are, where you live and a little bit about yourself – what you do and if you’re a māmā yourself. Please briefly explain in one or two sentences the context of the submission i.e. a photo of your baby taken by a photographer when they were a newborn.
Note: If you are submitting a photo of yourself and/or your child, please let us know the credit for the photographer or creator in your submission.
