Calling All High School Artists: Our Cover Contest Is Underway


The Severna Park Voice launched its inaugural Community Resource and Business Directory cover contest for student artists last year, and Severna Park Middle School’s Landon Oliver earned the opportunity to have his work on the cover of the publication.

This year, we are holding a contest exclusively for high school students.

The Community Resource and Business Directory includes information about greater Severna Park and directory listings for local businesses. Inside the magazine, readers will also find stories about the history of our community and all the resources that make Severna Park special. When considering a concept for the cover, we ask that all high school artists keep in mind what this area means to them.

The Rules

  • Submit art on an 8.5-by-11-inch sheet
  • The main composition must fit in 8.25-inch-wide by 6.25-inch-tall frame to accommodate the magazine’s title
  • The composition should be vertical
  • Artwork cannot make use of any copyrighted material
  • Art must be submitted in original format
  • The cover art will become property of the Severna Park Voice

All submissions must be received by the Voice before January 15, 2024. Submissions must be the artist’s original artwork. Do not fold the artwork. Include your name, grade and phone number. Send mail to this address: Severna Park Voice P.O. Box 608, Severna Park, MD 21146. Or drop off your work at Benfield Gallery (485 Jumpers Hole Road in Severna Park) or at the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce (1 Holly Avenue in Severna Park).
