The Canadian hip hop group Swollen Members had a contest for their fans to recreate their album covers. They're planning on rereleasing these cds and giving the chance to give back to their fans. The deadline is Feb. 10, 2011, so there is time to work on it. The downside is they retain all the rights and you do win a pretty good package, but I'm not sure if you get credit for the album cover artwork, I would hope so. By the look of the submissions, it does not look like there's stiff competition, but at the same time I'm not sure if they have been updating the gallery. This is what the website has to say about their prize package:
"The prize packages will consist of SWOLLEN MEMBERS CDs, records, a t shirt, a poster and stickers and hats and t shirt from RED DRAGON!! (RDS)….and of course…YOUR AMAZING COVER AS A PART OF THE SWOLLEN MEMBER’S LEGACY….Your art will be a part of our history!!!"
Here is a video to give you a little bit more detail on the matter and here is the link to view. http://www.swollenmembers.com/2010/12/03/attention-all-swollen-fans-family-and-friends/
