Rainbow Awards: Cover Contest (Round 2)

I think this is a poll many were waiting, this is the first poll of finals, all 268 covers from Round 2 are in there and we will select through them until we will reach the final 10. Each 2 weeks we will cut down 50% of the covers, it will be a harsh selection, but those are the rules.

- in round 2 there are 268 covers
- in parallel with the poll, a special jury will vote the covers; the jury is composed by: Damon Suede, Dylan Rosser, Jodie, Julie, Max Rhyser, Mitzie, Tammy.
- you can vote as many covers as you want, using the poll in this post

Most Voted Covers last round:


Conner's Courage (Reese Dante)


Duanta Beads (Anne Cain)


Fallen Sakura (Anne Cain)


Magic's Muse (Anne Cain)


Stained Glass (Anne Cain)


Bacchi (P.L. Nunn)
