Competition: calling all photographers, painters, embroiderers and illustrators…

We thought we'd celebrate the launch of the new website with a creative competition for magnet readers!

We have chosen some words on the theme of “new” – and we'd like you to create an image to complement the words, in the style of a magnet meditation page.

The winning entry will be featured on the website and in a future issue of magnet magazine. You'll also win a £50 book token to spend at Church House Bookshop.


1. Reflect on the words

magnet meditation pages are designed so that the words and image work in harmony.

Think about the words we have chosen for this page - how could your artwork reflect these, or draw out new understanding?

Remember ye not the former things,
      neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing;
      now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?

I will even make a way in the wilderness,
      and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:18-19 King James Version (KJV)


2. Create your artwork

Your image can be a photograph, a watercolour, a sketch, a quilt… the only requirement is that the artwork is original and belongs to you.

To feature your artwork in the magazine we will need a digital image (a JPEG or TIFF file) which is at least 2480 pixels x 3508 pixels. A good quality digital photograph or a scan of your original artwork should meet these requirements.


3. Send us your entry by email

Send your image (or a scan/photograph of the original artwork) to For large files it may be easier to use a file transfer service such as WeTransfer - simply upload your image and send us the download link.

Please DO NOT send us original artwork by post.

The deadline for competition entries is 30 April 2019. 


Competition terms and conditions

The magnet editorial team will choose a winner from all entries received by 30 April 2019. The editors' decision is final. The winner will be announced in the summer 2019 issue of magnet. By submitting your artwork you acknowledge that you own the rights to the image and that you are happy for it to be published in a future issue of magnet. The £50 book token is valid at Church House Bookshop in London and online at No cash alternative. E&OE.
