The cover of this issue will be the winning entry from this contest.

Nigeria Imaginary explores the many Nigerians that live in their minds, the nostalgias and dreams of what has been, what is, and what is yet to be. They are calling on artists to use their drawing, painting and/or illustration skills to produce a cover of a significant moment in Nigerian art history that represents the themes of Nigeria Imaginary.
