You could win a WRAL pencil!
Posted February 26, 2009
So, the big thing on the Facebook right now is creating your own random album cover. I thought we'd have our own little contest here on WRAL.com to find the best random cover.
Here's how it works:
1. Click here to get a random Wikipedia article. That's your band name.
2. Click here to get a list of random quotations. The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your album.
3. Click here for a list of interesting Flickr pictures from the last week. The third picture will be your album cover.
4. Use Photoshop, GIMP or a similar program to put it all together.
5. E-mail the finished product to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a link to the entries we have so far. I'll add them as I receive them in e-mail.
We'll pick two winners: Funniest album cover and best-designed album cover. I'll announce the winners tomorrow morning around 7:45 and 8:45 on WRAL News on Fox 50.
Now, the big prize is... get ready... a WRAL News pencil! This is from my personal collection. I went down to the WRAL Strategic Pencil Reserve and made a withdrawal a couple of months ago. Supplies are dwindling, so the value of these fine writing instruments increases by the day.
