Contest Brief

I am starting a new free monthly newspaper, and I am looking for a newspaper design. The name of the newspaper is "Modern Education", and I would like the design to look sharp and modern. I have attached the logo that will be at the top of the main page. This contest is for a 4 page template. The future version of this newspaper will be between 15 - 40 pages (the winner of this contest will have the option of a new project to expand the template). The size of the newspaper template will be 11 x 14 inches.

This 4 page template will consist of:

1) Front page
(a) Logo at the top and the following information at the top next to the logo:

2) Image underneath logo
3) Article title
4) Front page article
5) Front page Ad at the bottom (2 inches)

2) Second page
Top half of the page will have the company/newspaper information:

      Thanks to you too ... i know NOT Only design is enough to WIN a contest in which the result just initiates the project actually and not ends with contest completion, and the missing part is under construction, in my case. Lot many days to come, it is only around 50 days in freelancer. I will construct the missing PART soon, i hope the every day winning contests can solve the missing part as the profile reviews and experience grows. See u on your next contest; i am following you. :)

      Thanks for your last contest's feedback !

    Newspaper Design via Candace Hensarling: I like how the side boxes are shaded with an orange color. I also like how the top is organized.
    18. The Universe Letterbox via Marjory Kho: I like the clean front page design of this paper.
    29. My Heritage Paper via Elena Lujan: I like the inside organization of this newspaper.
    5 Boros via Kate Allaire: I like the colors and the clean design with space around everything. Traditional newspapers are very crowded.
