Cover Art Contest

Want your photo or artwork to appear on the cover of a national magazine? Submit your images now!


Every month one image is selected to appear on the cover of Teen Ink magazine. Winners receive a copy of the magazine featuring their image. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to choose from an exciting selection of Teen Ink merchandise - apparel and other items - available exclusively from Teen Ink.


Teen Ink will only consider photos and artwork by teens. Photos subjects should primarily be other teens. The best images for the cover are clear, in color, close up, high resolution, and vertically oriented.

Submit entries through our website. All photographs and artwork submitted to Teen Ink are automatically considered for the cover art contest. See our submission guidelines for more information.


There are no deadlines; images are accepted and published throughout the year. Keep in mind if your submission has a seasonal or holiday theme, it's best to send it in early.
