Today the 2011 Rainbow Awards officially start and to involve you all while the judges are reading the books, you can partecipate to the Cover Contest ;-) This year the contest will be a little different:

- you will vote only 1 time for each slot of 50 covers; in round 1 there will be 16 slots for a total of 800 covers; 400 covers will pass to round 2, 200 to round 3, 100 to round 4 and 50 to the fifth and last round.
- in parallel with the poll, a special jury will vote the covers; the jury is composed by: Debra, Dylan Rosser, Jack Mackenroth, Jesse Archer, Julie, Max Rhyser, Mitzie, Tammy.
- you can vote as many covers as you want but no more than 25.



All the 50 covers are saved here:

This was difficult! I narrowed it down to four covers, and dithered a long time before making my final choice *g*

reason for vote
Is this where I'm supposed to leave a comment to make my vote valid? I chose "Affair of the Porcelain Dog" because it evoked a late Victorian time period very well and took a little more effort than just photographing half naked men, no matter how lovely they might be.

It's a pity so many books don't mention the cover artist. Some of those are beautiful.
