New Album Cover Challenge 136 Starting Now

June 9th, 2022
Who knew NOT doing the laundry could result in an album cover challenge win?! Certainly not me but thanks so much to all who voted for it Also 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. Finally a great big thanks to Sally @salza who provided the in depth instructions that I have shamelessly copied here.

**Regrettably I have not been able to get the links to work as links so you will have to copy and paste.**

Now let's get Album Cover Challenge 136 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:

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. 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 THE SQUARE FORMAT

5. You can 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 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 albumcoverchallenge136
Entries can be seen here:

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 136 begins June 6th and ends at midnight (in your time zone) on July 5th. Finalists will then be chosen and the list for voting will be posted, 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 for the last challenge -

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

If you need some inspiration you can check out this link, just to get you started.

Good luck to everyone and enjoy this challenge!

My apologies Kali and Laura for losing your comments when I tried to edit the post

artist = Western Pennsylvania
album= From won't power to will power

Stubbornness is also determination. It's simply a matter of shifting from "won't power" to "will power."
Peter McWilliams, Life 101

Artist:- White swamphen.

Title:- "There are human beings."

Quote:- "Painting is an attempt to come to terms with life. There are as many solutions as there are human beings." George Tooker
