Earlier this year, OWL Magazine had an idea. We knew we wanted to do something special for Canada's 150th birthday. What would be a cool way to involve our readers in the celebration?
Then it hit us: we'd hold the Canada Cover Contest, and print the winner's artwork right smack on the very front of the June issue. Canadian artwork from a Canadian reader on the front of a Canadian magazine, in an issue all about Canada? Doesn't get more Canadian than that.
And the winner is...
We received a ton of amazing entries (more than 400!), but we knew we had to choose only one for the cover. Check out the video below for an interview with the super-talented Abigail, the reader whose artwork is now sitting proudly on newsstands across the country.
