Announcing The Destiny: Rise of Iron Magazine Cover Art Contest

by Matt Miller on Aug 02, 2016 at 06:01 AM

We’ve been blown away in recent years by the support and enthusiasm of the Destiny community as we continue our ongoing coverage of the Destiny franchise. As we roll out our look at Bungie’s next installment, we wanted to find ways to involve the community in exciting ways.

Our new art contest is a small way to thank you for following along with our coverage.

We’re giving artists a chance to see their creations featured as a Game Informer magazine cover.  Three winning entries, selected by Bungie developers, will be featured exclusively in an online feature here on Winning cover art will be prepared with the Game Informer logo treatment, just like we do for each of our magazine covers. 

In addition to acclaim from your fellow guardians, the three winners will receive a framed, poster-sized version of their Game Informer cover, complete with signatures from the Bungie development team behind Rise of Iron. In cooperation with Activision and Bungie, winners also receive a collection of awesome Bungie merchandise, along with a digital copy of Destiny: Rise of Iron on your preferred system. 

While we will feature contest winners on upon the contest’s completion, we encourage you to share your entries with the Destiny community throughout the month, in whatever way you desire. And while only one prize package will go out to each winning entry, there’s no rule that your art project needs to be the work of a single individual; feel free to to work together. Have fun, and send us the best Rise of Iron-themed art you can dream up.

Winning cover artists will be revealed on September 2nd.
