Photo Challenge

Magazine cover

This is a Challenge that we covered a few years ago under Stu’s watchful eye, but I thought we’d try it again. Your Challenge is to take a photograph and make it into a magazine cover. Don’t worry if that sounds hard – there are plenty of online magazine generators where you simply upload your picture and choose which magazine you want to make.

I recommend because it has the widest choice of templates, but you can use any site you like (there are loads on Google), or if you’re feeling brave, you can create your own magazine from scratch!

Your picture can be of anything at all, so long as it suits the theme of the magazine you choose. Why not pop down to your local newsagent and have a look at the various styles of photography that appear on the covers of magazines?

Please send your completed magazine covers in by noon on Tuesday 24th April. Good luck!

Challenge Admin, I enjoy taking photos mostly of landscapes and architecture - but I will try anything! I mostly shoot film and I spend a lot of time in my darkroom trying to get the perfect print. I'm a sysadmin for a living and I also enjoy cycling and music technology.


  1. I’ve started having a few ideas and I’ve taken a few test shots. The strangest thing for me is thinking in the portrait orientation – I almost always shoot landscape, and the rules of composition for magazines are very different from other types of photography!

  2. I’m seriously getting my geek on with this challenge. I’ve decided to make mine from scratch. Nothing spectacular mind, just easier! Now I just have to get a photo to go with it!

  3. sent an email, here it is incase :3
