The new album cover challenge starts today!

Thank you for checking out this challenge. This challenge seems complicated but really isn't. Feel free to post any questions in this thread.

Many thanks to Mel @m2016 for hosting Album Cover Challenge 80. Thank you also to everybody who participated in the past and voted (or didn't vote) for my cover. I just loved seeing everybody's entries!

So here’s how the album cover challenge works:

1) Go to and click on Random Article which can be found near the top of the sidebar menu to the left of the page. The first random article you get is the name of your musician/band.

2) Next go to and choose Random Quotes which can again be found on the left sidebar menu near the top of the page. Scroll right down to the bottom of the page - the last 4 - 6 words of the very last quote you see is your album title.

3) Next, find a suitable image for your album cover, based on your artist & title.

- Edit your image in any way you like and as much as you like, using any processing program or software you like.

- The image doesn’t have to be taken within the time frame of the challenge, but the image that you use must be one of your own.

- Remember, album covers are square, so use a square crop.

4) You can enter as many times as you like, with the same quote, or different quotes.

5) Tag your entries with: albumcoverchallenge81

See entries with this tag here:

6) Feel free to share your album covers on this thread, to keep the discussion visible.

7) The challenge starts today, Sunday, June 18 and will run until midnight (GMT) on Sunday, July 2. I will pick the finalists and open a new thread for voting shortly thereafter.

Best of luck and enjoy!
