    Once you've been doing this kind of thing for a while, you learn to read between the lines.
    I HOPE I'm wrong. But this is very carefully worded and has red flags all over the place.

    Yeah, I can see where it may imply that. Can't hurt to check, I guess. A good oppotunity for someone new to the field, I'd say.

    Possibly. It would at the very least be an addition to the portfolio.

    I think it's cool when bands open it up to fans...even if they dont end up really using the fans work...

    Thats all fine and dandy, but how many people will spend hours and hours working on artwork for them, and it not be used? Will those people also be given the new album once its finished as a thank you for their hard work? Is there any fine print that isn't mentioned in this blurb anywhere that all artwork submitted will have the rights relinqueshed from the artist and given to the band regardless if they use it for this album or not? Thus giving the band and label all kinds of free artwork to use anywhere they want with no proper credit given. I've seen that before and that really bugs me.

    Is this band going to give their cd away for free? And if I like it, I'll give them props by word of mouth? Not likely. Which is exactly what they are asking these fans/artists around the world to do.
