This was not an easy decision for the judges—we had the blessing of studying a large selection of wonderful photographs, each one celebrating the glory of God in a different way.  With so many stunning pictures to choose from and only one winner, we wanted to be sure to share some of our other submissions with you, so you could join in our appreciation of the beautiful art we were privileged to review.  And so, for our “honorable mentions”:

Many thanks to everyone who participated in this competition!  It was a great pleasure to interact with all of your work, and your contributions made this brand-new contest a success.  We admire your talent, and applaud your use of it to glorify God!

End of 2014 Spring Submission Period

With the end of April comes the end of submissions for this spring.  But if you had hoped to enter some of your work for the Fall 2014 issue of Doxa and didn’t get the opportunity, or didn’t have the time you needed to finish up your project—don’t lose heart!  A second submission period will be opening later this summer.  The dates for this entry slot are yet to be determined, so stay tuned!

Please note that this summer submission period only applies to journal entries—the Cover Art Competition is closed for the year.  Many thanks to all those who participated!

Cover Art Competition 2014

Announcing, for the first time in Doxa’s history, an open photography competition to determine the cover of the Fall 2014 issue of Doxa.  This competition is not just for undergraduate students, but for any photographer, professional or amateur, Doxa contributor or not, who desires to glorify God through his or her work.

While the artwork within the pages of Doxa can only be published in black and white, we request that color photos be submitted for the cover competition.  Photographs must be at least 300 dpi resolution to be usable.  The winning picture will be selected by the editors of the journal.

To enter a photo for consideration, please e-mail it as a .jpeg to lgraves.doxa@gmail.com, along with your name and mailing address, so that the winner of the competition may receive a free copy of the journal he or she is published in.  The deadline for submissions to this competition will be April 30th.

First Submission In!

We are excited to have received our first submission of 2014 this past weekend!  As you prepare your writing and art projects, please keep in mind that the earlier you send them in, the more time the Doxa staff will have to work on editing and formatting before publication.  Every extra day helps to make Doxa the best journal it can be!
