We are having a one off competition, especially for our designers. All of our Cover and Advanced designers are invited to take part, and the prize is a promotion to the Master Designer group. A theme will be selected for the participants, who will then have 4 weeks to create their master-piece. The entries will then be anonymously sent to Kernie, who will have one week to carefully judge and select the winner and our new Master Designer!

Here are the rules

Kernies Master Designer Invitational

• The competition is open to all Cover and Advanced Designers

• A theme will be chosen by the site staff and sent to the entrants on July 10th

• Competitors will have 4 weeks to create a single DVD or Bluray cover, and email it to competition@hirescovers.net. Entries must have been received by 23.59 GMT August 7th

• Entries will then be anonymously sent to Kernie, who will have one week to judge the entries based on four categories (Originality/Quality/Skill/Effort). Previews of the entries will be posted to the forums

• The highest score on Kernies scorecard will be promoted to Master Designer.

Standard HiResCovers competition rules apply. Covers must be the sole work of the designer and not shared with any other person or website until after the competition. If you have any questions, then please send me a PM.

The Advanced Designer & Cover Designer groups are full of talented individuals, an exciting lineup of rising stars and longtime favorites. I hope all of you decide to participate.

One thing is certain when looking at the names of those invited: the list of Master Designers is about to have a very worthy new addition. cheers.gif

It was actually Bunny Dojo's idea wink.gif But you are the one who ultimately decides who our new Master Designer is going to be, so it is therefore your invitational 8824.gif

And as such, you must take complete responsibility, and that includes complaints lol.gif

Thank you, Bazzah. While I jest, I am fully prepared for the responsibility and I will absolutely be taking my role as judge very seriously.

I will however offer this bit of advice to all entrants: be sure to proofread all text on your covers, because I certainly will be doing so. A magnificent cover with a typo will be ranked beneath less magnificent covers with zero errors. I am a stickler for these sort of details. So please make the judging process more difficult by making your covers flawless on a technical level.

Since Bazzah has bestowed such huge responsibility upon me, I will use said responsibility to point out to Bazzah that he needs to edit his original post for typographical and grammatical errors. There should be an apostrophe in “Kernie’s.” It’s a possessive noun. Proofread, boss! 8824.gif 8824.gif 8824.gif

With regard to the texts, if English is not your native language then please feel free to contact me and I will help you with any English spelling etc.

And if there is anyone that can help me to help you, seeing as Kernie has pointed out my huge grammatical error, it would be greatly appreciated 8824.gif

When this competition is over, perhaps a second contest to fill the Cover Designer seat that was vacated in the MD promotion? Maybe that could be open to everyone? And let another seasoned MD judge that one?

MovieMonster, an MD promotion from a non-designer rank might be a bit too much of a jump in the line. Weren’t you higher up on the ladder at one point? I’d certainly support the possibility of a contest to restore a demoted contributor to their former status, but that’s a conversation for a later time.

We do have a couple of other contests that we have been discussing. But any contest that we run with a promotion as a prize, would have to have contribution points taken into account.

The fact is MovieMonster have the talented to be part of this competition, to be honest and maybe people will not love what i'll said but i never like it the way of number of upload sometimes is more important than talented to be a master designer. I was master designer before so because im only a simple member now i cant participate but clearly i have the talented to be part of this competition cause i was master designer. (To be honest i dont care about enter to the competition it was only an example.)

This is only what i have to say good competition to everyone, have fun and good luck !

I understand what you are saying xshoty, but we cannot have a Master Designer who does not upload any covers. The same as designers and contributors. Otherwise we could have ten times of the amount of designers we have now wink.gif

I am not disputing MovieMonster's talents, nor am I questioning your talent. I am not sure what circumstances led to your current status, or MovieMonster's current status. I have no part in the decision to demote someone to a lesser rank.

I can't think of a single Designer who was ever promoted simply because of their "number of uploads." A balance between quantity, quality, and site activity must exist. We have longtime contributors here who have huge Gallery Counts, but never achieve the level of MD for one reason or another. I've also seen incredibly talented people get fast-tracked promotions to various Designer levels, and then disappear.

Some Master Designers, like yourself, have moved on to other things and have stopped uploading new covers regularly. You have made a huge name for yourself on Instagram and are generating more praise and popularity than any Master Designer at HiResCovers has ever seen, and for that I applaud you. Your talent is phenomenal and the world at large is taking notice. I completely respect the name and reputation that you have created for yourself. However, while you're focusing your attention on more fruitful ventures elsewhere, we have other talented, up-and-coming designers (likely inspired by your work) making regular contributions to our cover community.

This current competition is about giving active designers an opportunity to achieve a Master Designer spot. And like I said in the post that you quoted, I am more than willing to support future competition ideas that allow contributors to climb the ladder and for retired designers to reclaim their titles, so long as they demonstrate a renewed level of activity in our HiResCovers community.

True, that's the most important part.

If Xshoty uploads 1 new cover and says "I want Master Designer status again," it will happen instantly, and everyone will be thrilled. 8834.gif

M0vieM0nster still needs ~3 covers before March 2021, but when that happens it will be the easiest vote this site has ever seen to award him Cover Designer status (on the immediate path to Advanced Designer and Master Designer, if he wants).

The current number of ~6 covers/labels per year, with a minimum of 1 upload every 5 months, is not perfect -- Paris and M0vieM0nster come to mind as two very vital contributors who have been hurt by it -- but in general it seems like a reasonable expectation for an active designer.
