To be considered for a cover, images are to be UNSEEN, UNPUBLISHED images to keep our viewers excited for the cover. We are looking for specific things in order for an image to make our cover. The quality of the photo, the lighting, matching the theme of the month, along with there being a right amount of space at the top for our logo, the sides for any text needed for the issue. Please do not get discouraged if you send in something wanting the cover and we ask for it for inside the issue. Our cover images are usually picked at least one to two issues ahead of the one we are working on so even if you are selected for a cover, you may still have to wait a few weeks before it is filled and released.
