Rachel Cartwright, second year illustration student at Edinburgh College of Art, has won the Fledgling Press Book Cover competition. In its third year now, the competition brief was to illustrate the cover for Dickson Telfer’s upcoming collection of short stories, The Red Man Turns to Green, due to be published at the end of May 2013. We had an extremely difficult time choosing the winner this year, with such a high standard and professional response to the brief. Several of the entries would easily have made great covers for publication but Rachel’s cover won over the judges. The author is also delighted with the choice, and was grateful the decision didn’t rest on his shoulders. After the Easter break, Fledgling Press will work with Rachel to produce the finished cover ready for the publication of The Red Man Turns to Green in May. Many thanks to all students who submitted a cover, and we’ll be giving feedback on them all in due course.
