Call to artists: Idaho Ho Ho CD cover art contest extends its deadline

If you’ve ever wanted to design a CD cover, here’s your chance.

The team from Moxie Java that produces the annual “Idaho Ho Ho Christmas” music compilation is looking for a new cover design. And this year, they’re running a contest.

For the past five years, Idaho musicians and songwriters, such as Curtis Stigers, Steve Fulton and Carole King, donate their time and talent to create the holiday CD that helps raise funds for the Idaho Foodbank.

If you have a great holiday-themed idea that reflects the Idaho lifestyle and spirit, submit it by Sept. 1 to

The winning artwork will be used on the cover and all promotional materials from posters to Facebook posts. It must be free of any copyright restrictions. The artist also will be required to donate the original artwork to the Foodbank to be auctioned off at the annual Chefs’ Affaire in November.

Moxie will accept only electronic submissions. Click here to learn about the specs for entries. Download an entry form here.
