So for the fifth installment in the test press artwork contest series, we find ourselves coming in at Sheath009, Caspian's debut 12" You Are The Conductor...

We only received one submission for this contest when we launched it last year, so we're starting it up again to see if we can get some more people to submit artwork :D

10 of these test presses were pressed. Here's how the winnings will break down:

- whoever wins the artwork contest will get a test press of the 12" featuring the cover art they created.

- we'll also hold a raffle including every single person that submitted artwork for consideration, whoever wins that raffle will also get a test press featuring the contest winning artwork.

- anyone that preordered the repress last year will be automatically entered into a raffle that one winner will be drawn from.

*Deadline for submissions will be on February 1st.

But only registered message board members can submit artwork ideas for the test press jackets. After you've created your magic, please email your submissions to info@themylenesheath.com and we'll confirm we've received it!

Any and all feedback is welcome in this thread and we'll even periodically post images of the submissions we've received. If any of you would like to post your submissions in this thread, that is fine as well, but also be certain to email it to info@themylenesheath.com so we enter it in the contest!

Any questions? Feel free to bring it up in this thread or email to the above email address :D

Specs and such:
- artwork should be included for front and back, I guess in 12" x 12" squares? One for the front and one for the back
- If possible for you, please submit files in one of these - .psd, .ai, .pdf, or .eps formats, saved down to CS3 and then also please include a .jpg for preview
- the jackets can either be plain white 12" side loading regular jackets or else colored paper/cardstock folded over
- max amount of colors used for printing should be three
- one submission per person
- deadline is September 1st

If you don't have the ability to save .pds, .ai, .pdf, or .eps, you can submit a .jpg and we'll try to make it work. Don't let that prevent you from submitting your ideas! Also, to those of you that don't consider yourself "artists", please give it a shot anyway - unlock your inner artist!!!

After the submission deadline is reached we will select a few of our personal favorite submissions and post them on the message board in a poll to be voted on. After the voting takes place, we'll take a few that received the most votes and give them to the band to choose the final winner who achieves TOTAL VICTORY!!!

Thanks guys, can't wait to see what you all come up with for this one!!
