Magnetic Eden clusters (Ausloos et al., Europhys. Lett. 24, 629 (1993)) with ferromagnetic interaction between nearest-neighbor spins are grown in a confined 2d-geometry with short range magnetic fields acting on the surfaces. The change of the growing interface curvature driven by the field and the temperature is identified as a non-equilibrium wetting transition and the corresponding phase diagram is evaluated.
