Bit & Paard Verzameld Cover Competition 2021 

'Winter Wonderland'
CALLING ALL EQUINE ARTISTS!

Last summer, the Bit x Paard Verzameld Gallery cover competition was a resounding success! So many beautiful entries from all over the world, so much outstanding artwork. We therefore decided on a new collaboration for the cover competition, just in time for Christmas and this time with a wintry theme.

The cold season, short days, Christmas lights and snowflakes, so different from happy foals hopping merrily through a grassy meadow, the theme of the last cover competition. We are very curious if the theme 'Winter Wonderland' appeals to horse-loving creatives and artists!

Dutch equestrian magazine Bit is looking for a beautiful art cover, no photo. So, are you an illustrator, painter, watercolorist or is sketching your forte, let yourself be inspired by the theme and participate in the Bit Cover competition in collaboration with Paard Verzameld Gallery. The winner will be featured on the cover of the winter issue. The magazine will also pay attention to the winner in the form of a feature. The original work remains the property of the creator at all time.
