Is stock art okay?

That depends. You may use stock art, but the format, color, addition of other elements, and other techniques make cover art your own work. The finished product should not look enough like another cover that the use of the stock art is obvious.

For purposes of the Ariana eBook Cover Art Competition, "original" means that you used your creative talents to craft cover art that reflects the content of an individual book.
