Cropped to 5X5 Designed to sell a band, an artist, or a web program basically anything that comes in a jewel case.

oh yeah and of course the title would be the name of the album.... (am I dating myself) the web program or what ever would be included in the jewel case. Use the name of an existing groop, album, artist, Program, Or make something up.

Fun idea, I like it. Would need to be an "editing allowed" challenge though I think.

sounds like fun to me.
I dunno about the editing though.

This is a great idea. I was asked to do a cd cover and this would really help.

Yes, i am all for this.

Editing allowed.

Lets have some fun!

I think a product box would be a better challenge. More open for interpretation rather than a CD case.

I suggested a CD Coverchallenge some time ago too and only one person respond about it.

I think it can be a very funny challenge if the editing is allowed, we have great Photoshoop artist in the site!

Lets not beat this dead horse again.

I remeber the good lod days of album covers and maybe thats what I ment. Like propaganda text might give you a more finished look but text would have done the same for book titles.

I was thinking a traditional photography challenge with the artistic bent twards imaging an artist, band or web program, and use the 5X5 dementions of a CD Jewel case

Then maybe as those challenges didn't allow editing and text, this one should do.

I think this idea has merit. I would say it had to be square instead of saying 5x5, maybe 640x640 or 600x600. Unlike other challenges, the entry, as displayed on a computer screen during voting, would approximate the size of the intended use of the image. And it would be appropriate for a "no edit rules" challenge-- text ok, multiple images ok, digital art ok, just as long as there was at least one digital photographic image used as a starting point. Might even limit the challenge to coverart for music, a concept understood around the world.

You may be dating yourself joannadiva but I hope that doesn't mean that the album cover is outdated as an artform. I remember when album covers were 12x12 and considered high art. They were displayed in exhibitions at the classiest of galleries; collected and sold in expensive coffee table books; and original copies drew really big bucks at auctions (that's Christie's & Sotheby auctions, not eBay, lol). Of course many are overly commercial but there is also a very high level of creativity present. The fact that cover artwork is intended to help sell the product gives it a unique twist. It forces the artist to lean heavily toward inspiring a specific response from the viewer, to make them want to own the music. In a very loose sense, this is parallel to the way challenge rules and topics force our entries to be a certain type of artwork.
