    Oof. This year is gonna be a tough one; there are a lot of great entries. Good luck to all!

    A couple of years ago, the best I did in an album cover contest was have one cover (Shane Osiris’s “Stealing The Sun”) named as one of the ten finalists. Ever since then, none of my submissions even made the first cut. At this point, I’m totally stoked to have two of my designs in the Top 10. This will be some tough competition this year. Good luck to everyone!!!

    Nice selection, y’all. Would have thought “Perils of the Modern Man” to be the better of the two Pragmatica covers chosen for the contest. But, now that I look at it again, I like “The Grand Facade” way better.

    Thank you for the consideration! Good luck, everyone. And nice work!

    I think Figment should do another edition of Cover Stories featuring Moonblood Symposium. I would love to know what went into that cover.
