Magazine Cover for Print Pub distributed in 50 countries

Contest Brief

MacTech Magazine is the oldest publication in the Apple market. We have a special issue in production now, and need a special cover. The main concept is a "shootout" article between two pieces of software. Attached are examples of previous ones we've done.

We're thinking cars -- something like the one shown, but it should be slightly different. Neither can be shown in the lead. One car should not look "faster" than the other (i.e., it should be the same model, different color). Photorealism is a plus.

Other ideas are welcome -- but if not, cars are the default.

We're positioning this gig as more of a "experiment". If the project goes well, the person will likely get used for other projects.

This is a gig to build your resume. After all, how often do people get to say that they built an anniversary issue of a print magazine distributed to 50 countries?

-----

Added: While we appreciate the mockup having the logo on it, we only need the image (the text, masthead, etc...) will be handled by us.

    Good evening all,

    While we're not yet declaring a winner, please hold off on submitting more.

    We know which cover we like the best -- but the submission made relies on artwork that we need permission to use. If we get that permission, and can finalize, we have the winner.

    If not, however, we'll reconsider the other designs.

    Hi!
    Kindly tell me what would you like specifically as you did not like both my designs.
    Do you want to keep 'cars' in the coverpage?
