Rainbow Awards: Cover Contest - Round 10

Round n°10, 5 rounds to the end, 40 covers still in contest to arrive to the last week with the 10 finalists.

You can vote as many covers as you want but please don't vote more than 30 covers otherwise the selection process will not work smoothly.

From this round (for the last 5 rounds) other than the poll, there will be a special jury voting in the cover contest. It will be a jury made all by external guests (no authors, no cover artists, no publishers): they will be of course people with an interest in the art and communication field, but they will be impartial. Their vote will be added to the poll, it will have an higher weight but it will be an addition not in substitution, so the people voting in the cover contest will still have an huge influence in the final result, and in any case they determined the 40 finalists among more than 500 covers.

First to accept my invite is Dylan Rosser, one of the most famous male model photographer out there: http://www.themaleform.net/

Another judge is Jesse Archer, actor and screenwriter, whose movie "Violet Tendencies" I adopted last year: http://jesseonthebrink.blogspot.com/

Last to join the jury is Jack Mackenroth, athlete and fashion designer, former contendant in Project Runaway: http://www.jackmackenroth.com/

I saved all the covers in an external page, I suggest you to open it in another web page and tick the covers on the poll.

Moreover some publishers offered an ebook giveaway to be drawn among who will vote in the poll, so voting you will have a chance to win the ebook.

Last week winners are:

luscious_words Chosen ebook: The Pleasure Set by Lisa Girolami, Bold Strokes Books

aza313  --> Chosen ebook: Summer Song by Louise Blaydon, Dreamspinner Press

jadband  --> Chosen ebook: Home by William Neale, MLR Press
