make your own Dazed cover using images shot by Hedi Slimane.
"For the January issue of Dazed, we asked everyone under 18 and living in the UK to get in touch with an idea for an article about what it means to be young and British today. With the idea landing on homepages from Myspace to Channel 4, our inboxes soon started to buckle under the strain... so, we thought we’d make even more work for ourselves by asking you to do the cover as well.
So, how will it work? All of the fashion for this issue was shot over three days by designer Hedi Slimane, on a portfolio of British youth street-cast from various locations around London. We’re now giving you a downloadable Dazed cover template and three of Hedi’s images. If you want to use one (or all) of them, go for it – they’re yours to do with as you like. And if you want to use a completely different image of your own, that’s fine, too – it’s up to you. We just want you to make an exciting, attractive and revealing Dazed cover that says something about what it’s like to be young and British today.
You should be under 18, If you’re actually a 37-year-old graphic designer and live with your mum, well, we can’t stop you entering but it would be a bit weird, wouldn’t it? We’ll print our favourites in the January issue and show some of the best here on Dazed Digital as they come in, and we’ll also be blagging some nice prizes to give out randomly over the coming weeks as well. Please send all entries (JPEG format, ideally) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday November 17 and be sure to include your name, age and where you live. Happy designing."
