    I also noticed that he used a stock image from the Transformers promo, as Derek already pointed out. I don't wanna come off as a sore loser, but the whole thing wasn't carried out in a fair manner.

    So evidently, the link to the official rules periodically disappears. That explains the confusion.

    Doesn't explain management's decisions though.

    Lol damn! Like Keaton said, I'm curious to know what management/LP do next. Probably nothing.

    The winning cover is nice but I'm not too fond of the yellow "Iridescent" text.

    The winning cover is nice much like your current girlfriend is nice. Sure she looks good enough, but she has her flaws. And let's be completely honest: if you had to choose between her and Alison Brie, you wouldn't. She looks better, has loads of money, and let's be honest, she won't exactly be bitching about every little thing that you do wrong because she's a celebrity and just doesn't give a fuck.

    I mean, seriously. If you're that pissed off about me eating the last cookie, just go buy some more! It's not that hard. Oh, don't give me that look. There's a reason I compared you to Alison Brie, and the whole cookie situation isn't helping your case on the 'appearance' and 'bitching' front. And God knows there'd still BE a cookie if you had made my sandwich correctly in the first place. When I say turkey on swiss, I'm not in the fucking mood for bologna. And you wonder why I don't let you out of the kitchen. Jesus Christ. Now maybe you'll understand why I cheat on you. At least SHE knows what a man wants, and that's a sandwich and a good reason to explain why I pulled a back muscle last night. And no, sleeping on the couch doesn't count. Although that did contribute to the mess Alison and I made last night. Which I expect you to clean up. Here's your broom, now chop chop.

    Nothing. It's too late. The concert has already happened, the flyers etc were printed for the show and the decision was final. This kid just won the contest unfairly. It happens in contests sometimes and there's little else that can be done about it.

    I can see Linkin Park showing off the other top picks for the album cover as well though. Perhaps that will be their way to pay their respects to the other artists.

    Everytime that I glance at the title to this thread, I keep thinking Winning is in quotes, not Iridescent.

    Well thats a kick in the teeth. He blatantly broke the rules and won with an image with just a few photoshop tweeks.

    Regardless of breaking the rules or not though I don't think the cover goes well at all with Iridescent -the song. Don't get me wrong i do like the cover, but it just doesn't gel to me. Wrong front, wrong color... etc.

    Drastic measures need to be taken. I say we track this cheater down and give him a vicious Wet Willie.

    I think someone should bring this up in the next LPU chat or something. Surely their aware of the rules hes broken?

    *EDIT* brought to my attention on LPL, THIS should have won the contest hands down.

    All from people from LPL. So mods if the images are too big, I'm just wanted to show LPA more brilliant submissions.

    They shoud've picked 3 "covers" - front, back and inlay. These would be a great choice.

    WOAH, those are amazing! I agree with Tyler, #3 cover looks awesome and the art is amazing on all three of these art covers! (via 1996_LP) I know, it does suck that this guy cheated and still won. Like Derek said, there's nothing we can do about it.

    Those are some epic pieces of art... WTF happened? Any one of those would have been a better choice.

    That's not to say it isn't very good, each of those is actually.
