We have a winner! Thank you to all the fantastic artwork that we’ve seen over the last month, so many people have caught the spirit of Big Finish and all the stories produced. But there can only be one cover artist for September’s issue of Vortex…
Sophie told us all about her reaction when she heard, "I am so incredibly delighted to have my artwork chosen for the Vortex competition! I'm constantly amazed at the level of quality from Big Finish - the stories are completely immersive and so enjoyable. Thrilled to have this opportunity to contribute art to the wider universe of my favourite show. Thank you!!! 😊"
Vortex magazine is free to download via the site from the beginning of each month and (while stocks last) a free physical copy will be sent out with every purchase.
Editor of Vortex, Kenny Smith, told us all about picking the winning entries, “I was genuinely taken aback by the quality of entries we received for the competition. Looking through them was a pleasurable way to spend a Saturday morning, and coming up with my shortlist of three was incredibly tough. I changed my mind three times! Well done to all who entered - you're a very talented bunch.”
Executive Producer Nicholas Briggs told us about viewing all the fantastic entrants, ‘It's really lovely to see all the enthusiasm bursting out of so many brilliant pieces of artwork. It’s long been said that Doctor Who inspires creativity in the people who love it, and I think that’s doubly true for followers of Big Finish. We’re privileged to have these people enjoying our work, and it’s been such fun enjoying theirs in return.’
A hearty congratulations to all the entrants in the competition. We hope to showcase all the entries on social media soon - there were so many fantastic artworks we want everyone to see!
For those writers eagerly awaiting the results of the Paul Spragg opportunity, a winner has been selected and is now busy at work! Story details will be announced in the autumn.
