A chance to design the cover of our new iTunes Compilation

May 10 2012

On Febuary 23rd, we asked our facebook friends the following question: “if you could only recommend one SONG from a Metropolis release for a compilation, what song would you pick?”

After going through all the responses, ignoring anything Eric from Everything Goes Cold ever says, and then getting really busy and putting it on the back burner for a while, we would like to announce the following:

Metropolis Records will be releasing an iTunes-exclusive digital compilation entitled “Metropolis Records: Fan Selected Vol. 1”

We have whittled down the track listing, and now we need your help on for the next step. We are offering up the chance for our fans to design the cover image for the compilation.

- your image MUST be original. No taking a screen cap from Blade Runner and adding text. That’s just cheating. And a little lame.

- image MUST be a 1500x1500 jpg, RGB color

- image must include the title of the compilation: Metropolis Records: Fan Selected Vol. 1

Winner will be chosen at the sole discretion of the Metropolis Records staff.

Winner will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to Metropolis Mail Order

Legal mumbo Jumbo that you need to read:

By submitting your art for consideration, you give Metropolis Records the exclusive license to use the cover for the purpose of accompanying tracks submitted for and sold via the online retailer iTunes in perpetuity as well as publishing the image online for promotion. Metropolis Records will credit the art where appropriate and will not misrepresent or misuse the art in any way. By granting this permission, you waive the right to revoke our use of the cover and also agree that the entire work is original and does not infringe on the copyright of another. Metropolis Records does not profit directly from the use of the cover and so no royalties or payments will be issued for the artwork submitted.
