Design your own Album Cover (#135)

April 27th, 2022
What a wonderful surprise to have been voted the winner of the album cover challenge. Thanks to everyone who continues to support and participate in this fun challenge that combines a bit of luck with the creative talent of the person who draws the random quote and article. It is so great to see these challenges flourish.

Now let's get Album Cover Challenge 135 started.

The rules for how to do the challenge are as follows:

1. Go to the Wikipedia website’s main page. The title of the “Featured Article” for the day is the name of your artist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

2. For your album title, go to http://www.quotationspage.com/ 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. Please enter your artist and title in a comment box below so we all know what you are up against!

4. Next, find or take a photo (photos) of yours that fits the album name and artist(s). The cover can be made up of one single shot or an edit with multiple layers, and so on. The processing options are limitless, but don’t forget to crop your album cover into a square format though!

5. You can use your favourite editing programme 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 timeframe of the challenge.

6. If editing with software isn’t your thing you could create something manually – e.g. a collage or montage including text cut from a newspaper or magazine – and take a photo of that. Just remember the square crop.

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

8. Tag your entries albumcoverchallenge135
Entries can be seen here: https://365project.org/tags/albumcoverchallenge135

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 and just may inspire others to enter.

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, and then paste it to this thread.


Album Cover Challenge 135 begins April 27th and ends at midnight (in your time zone) on Tuesday, May 31st. Finalists will then be chosen and the list for voting will be posted, the winner being announced after the vote is completed.

As in the last round, it’s been suggested that, if the first selection of artist title and album title are too out there for you to work with, try one more time for another combination.

This challenge is fun but really “challenging“with combination of given square format, unpredictable name and topic and of course processing/editing requirements. I hope you will find it as fun and attractive as I do, and we'll get some interesting and original participation. I look forward to see as many results of your creativity as possible
