It's Music to My Ears- A New Album Cover Challenge Has Started!

October 10th, 2021
How fun was Album Cover 129?! Too fun you say? Well, the fun hasn't stopped. Album Cover Challenge 130 is now up and running. Many thanks to Liz Milne @spanishliz for hosting #129. It's now up to you to make #130 a success. Here's how to play:

1. Go to the Wikipedia website. The title of the “Article of the Day” is the name of your artist.

2. For your album title, go to and choose "random quotes" from the left menu. Scroll down to the end of the page. The last 4 to 6 words of any of the three last quotes on the page is the title of your album, whichever you think would go with your band or artist.

3. Next, find or take a photo (photos) of yours that fits the album name and artist(s). You can use one single shot or edit with layers, and so on. The processing options are limitless. Don’t forget to crop your album cover in a square format!

4. Use your favorite editing program to create your cover. You can use any image of yours for the album, old or new, but you must use your own images and do all your processing for the cover during the time frame of the challenge.

5. You can enter multiple times but only one album will be chosen per photographer.

6. Tag your entries: albumcoverchallenge130

In addition to tagging your image, you can post your album to this thread, too. It’s always fun to see what others are coming up with!

To post a photo on this thread:
1) Go to your page that has the photo you would like to post.
2) Click on the arrow below your picture.
3) Find the 'Embed Code' box and right click on it to copy it, then paste it to this thread.

Challenge 130 begins October 9, 2021 and ends at midnight (any time zone) November 9, 2021. Finalists will be closely thereafter and voting will be posted then with the winner being announced after the vote is completed.

To view submissions from previous challenges, search for album cover challenge, or click on this link to see entries to the last challenge -

Who will your artist be? What kind of music will they play? It's all in the realm of your imagination- so warm up your photographic vocal chords and sing!

Sheesh its a monster quote!

I can’t talk about our love story, so I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this: There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get. But, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.

Hello Ann! Congratulations on winning this!
Will you please correct the tag link for this challenge? Thank you so much!

I chose Random Article for my band because I couldn't figure out Article of the Day

@monikozi The tag link is to see entries from the last challenge- I just copied and pasted that from the previous post. Sometimes folks like to see what has been done before. The tag for this round is albumcoverchallenge130. I'm pretty sure I have that in there correctly. But if it's not, type out what I should change and I'll be glad to do that.

@spanishliz @salza @kali66 @grammyn Looking forward to seeing your albums!

My bad! I did not pay attention to the text before the link. In other challenges, the link to tag is for the current challenge. It's the power of habit and not paying attention to the details. Thank you for pointing it out.
You don't need to change anything.
