Let's get Album Cover Challenge 141 started

December 5th, 2022
Many thanks to Chris @cdcook48 for hosting the previous round of the Album Cover Challenge. I now have the honour of hosting the next Album Cover Challenge.

This is a fun challenge that combines a bit of luck with the creative talent of the person who draws the random quote and article.

The rules for 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 albumcoverchallenge141
Entries can be seen here: https://365project.org/tags/albumcoverchallenge141

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 141 begins on 6th November and ends at midnight (in your time zone) on Saturday, 31st December. 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 look forward to seeing the results of your creativity.

Good luck to everyone and enjoy the challenge.

Artist: Bill Denny

(Dumb) quote: When a man takes one step toward God, God takes more steps toward that man than there are sands in the worlds of time (The Work of the Chariot).

Let's safe Bill by tearing apart the quote and limiting it to the most meaningful, last, six words: 'Sands in the worlds of time'.

Hey, I thought that page was unique! Bill seems popular @cdcook48 I cannot work out his genre yet...

Never done this before but will have a go. Artist Nadezhda (wife of Lenin) Quote: There are people whom one loves immediately and forever. Even to know they are alive in the world with one is quite enough.(Nancy Spain) I have taken the last four words, and not really used them in the context they were intended.
