THE RETURN OF THE CURSE OF THE COVER ART CONTEST'S GHOST!


OFFICIAL RULES:

(Note: These are the rules from previous contests (http://www.fanedit.org/forums/showthread.php?739-The-All-New-Cover-Art-Contest-Rules), modified.)



Contest is open from first of the month until 8pm GMT on the 15th. If you don't know your local time, visit this webpage WORLD CLOCK (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/).
All entries must remain PRIVATE until the 15th. NO posting of covers anywhere.
E-mail all covers to: neglify [at] gmail [dot] com
Include "(month) cover art contest entry" in the subject title.
Multiple entries are allowed (and encouraged :)).
There will be 2 to 3 fanedits chosen each month for use in the cover contest. The edits to be used will be announced on the first of the month.
Contestants may choose either cover or create covers for both (or all three).
All covers, regardless of fanedit, will be pooled together for voting. The voting will be done using a public poll. And only one vote per user (no duplicate accounts to pad the votes please).
Each cover is considered one entry.
Cover art and disc art are required for entry submission.
You must create your own cover. You can't take the existing cover (or an alternate cover online) and just tweak it. (Example of alternate cover online: http://tinyurl.com/7ejmbyw)
You may use whatever images or fonts or symbols you like (except as stated above). You may also create images yourself (will receive bonus points from voters methinks :D). No porn or vulgar language/images.
You may create previews using imandix or similar software, but all previews will be remade to create consistency across entries for voting ease.
Public voting (via poll) on entries will last from the 15th of the month through the last day of the month.
Promotion of entries (via posters, banners, etc) is highly encouraged during the time of open voting. NOT before.
Breaking this rule may prompt tarring and feathering. :smile:
The entry with the most votes at the end of the month wins the "Faneditors Cover-of-the-Month" award.
There will also be a booby prize for most ridiculous cover. See http://tinyurl.com/7a634hr for an example. Booby covers must specifically be labeled as such when you e-mail them to me.



Here are the edits that will be used for the contest:


Dr. Jones and the Skull Kingdom Mystery (http://fanedit.org/13190/) (by Wraith)
Northwest Passage: A Twin Peaks Fanedit (http://fanedit.org/13619/) (by Q2)
Watchmen: Midnight (http://fanedit.org/14241/) (by flixcapacitor)



I chose these three edits because they all have 2 things in common. They all won FEOTM in 2011 and they all only have 1 cover.

I highly suggest all you participating cover artists watch those edits (or at the very least, read the description, intention and cutlist for the edits) to get familiar with the style, tone and content. For example, you don't want to create a Northwest Passage cover devoted to the Log Lady.

And to re-iterate the rule... Do not post your covers in the forum. (Or post on social media sites and link to them...) E-mail all covers to neglify [at] gmail [dot] com. Include "(month) cover art contest entry" in the subject title (or "(month) Booby cover contest entry").

Now go make me some sick covers!

So far I have received three covers from QuickCut. I'm hoping some of you guys have some covers you're working on.

waiting on a render, so I might take a stab at some this morning. Question though. I see that Q2's edit is AVCHD as well as DVD. Are you looking for just the DVD cover here, or is it possible to make a blu-ray sized cover for the AVCHD set?

kthx

Either one would be fine. And yeah, as far as AVCHD, I would accept a blu-ray cover. The choice is yours but...

At the moment, I have 5 covers. 3 from QuickCut, 1 from Throwgncapr and 1 from myself. I also have 3 booby covers. 1 from QuickCut and 2 from myself. I had originally said I would pick the winner of the booby covers but since I went ahead and made 2 of them that wouldn't be fair. I'll pass that task off to another mod or admin...

Send me your covers before April 15th, 8 PM GMT.

Oh, that's how it was done before? Cool. Will do that.

I know that Rogue may or may not make the deadline, I spoke with him about it. AvP is probably too busy with his spiders. (Plus I forgot to PM him directly before the contest started to let him know...)

They were PM'd. Before the contest started. Look through your PMs and you'll find it.
