Challenge has finished
A mid-market consumer magazine, specializing in cigars, is looking for a compelling cover. The client requires a very pleasing image in a vertical format (portrait orientation) and must prominently depict a cigar. The image may be of a lone cigar, multiple cigars or someone enjoying a cigar, so long as the reader can see the cigar quite clearly.
