Label Of The Month

My Favorite Cover Designer:

****PLEASE NOTE**** The deadline for the entries has been extended by one week

Round 4: Must include Tom Cruise in the cast or making of the film. Only screen shots may be used (No poster art at all). Must include an image of a woman on the front.

Round 3: Must star a male actor who was born between 1960 and 1980, and is set in the future. (Future is 2008 plus)

Round 2 - You must include a vehicle as a main theme (i.e Airplane, Cars, Yellow Submarine, etc). Entries must be sent to me by 18th October.

Round 1 - You must create a cover for a movie that was released between 1960 and 1995 and is available on DVD . (Remember you may create a cover for DVD, Blu-Ray or HD DVD) All entries must be sent to admin@hirescovers.net by 12:00pm GMT BST Wednesday 19th September. Please remember to include your member name when sending in your entry.

Round one will begin on Wednesday the 12th September 2007. I will be announcing the first 'element' then. You will have until Wednesday the 19th September to send in your entries. Any entries not received by that date will not be entitled to carry on in the competition.

Please Note: This Competition Will Not Begin Until We Have A List Of Judges And Entrants. I Will Post Here Again When The Competition Is Starting. Please Inform Me If You Would Like To Take Part.


We are trying something a little different for this month’s competition. Instead of making one cover, we are going to have a knock-out tournament. But, as a twist, each round you will have to design a cover that includes a specific element and /or theme). It could be anything from a stone background, to having to feature a shoe (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) These details will be decided over the next few days. There will also be a set panel of judges, so please can I have some volunteers to help.

So, basically we will have four rounds, with one week to design a cover (for each round), and one week to judge it. The first round will include all of you. Which will hopefully be more than 10 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif) ? (If it isn’t, then we will have to rethink the amount of contestants for each round.) The panel of judges will then have one week to vote on each cover, accumulating a top 10 for each judge. I will then put these scores together, and the ten contestants with the most overall votes, will be announced, and entered into the next round.

Round two. A new element will be decided for this round. If you were selected as a top ten contestant from round one, you will need to include this element in this weeks cover. Again, you will have a week to design your cover. The judges will then have another week to decide their top ten, which will give us 5 contestants for the next round.

Next round; a new element, and just 5 contestants. This time, only two contestants will go through for a final round.

Final Round, the two contestants will battle head to head, using the element designated, and will have up to two weeks to complete their cover. Obviously if they both finish before the deadline, then we can move straight on to the judging. Again, I will collate the judges scores, to give us our winner.

Here are the rules for the competition:

1. ANY member from the site may take part
2. Covers must be up to site standard (see site rules)
3. Your chosen cover must be listed on www.imdb.com.
4. Poster art may be used, for images, but each must be no more than 20% of the total cover size.
5. You may not post your covers for help, in this forum, or any other. All work must be done by yourself, without any assistance. Anyone found doing so will be disqualified.
6. You may create a DVD, Blu-Ray or HD DVD cover.
7. Covers must be submitted by the ** (see dates below).
8. All entries should be emailed to admin@hirescovers.net, with your member name clearly stated. I will then forward the covers anonymously to the judges.
9. You may only submit one entry each.
10. Admin reserves the right to withdraw the competition at any time, and/or disqualify anyone for breaching the rules.

Good luck all! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

Hi mate & hope all is well with you.I am currently back & forth to the hospital at this time & i it is therefore difficult for me to work under time constraints.Had some cortisone injections in my shoulders/knees but still unable to spend too much time & at one sitting without it being painful mate.Therefore with regret ,i would be unable to fulfill the requirements as laid out.
However i don,t mind helping you with the judging if that is of any use to you.
All my very best .........................Ian
