I'm honored to keep Kylumi's judging chair warm for him this year.

Those of you who don't know me may wonder, What qualifies me to judge?

Professionally, I've worked on DVD and Blu-ray cover concepts for some of the best-loved films of all-time and for some of cinema's most celebrated directors.  About 98% of those concepts were discarded, and, legally, I cannot showcase any of them here.  **Note to self: Improve this section before posting.

I also setup up four Cover Site Battle Royal events, bringing together top designers from across the custom cover community, with EFX winning twice.  I was neither a competing designer nor a judge, but... umm... I made the logo.  **Note to self: Improve this section before posting.

In conclusion:

My own lack of judging qualifications notwithstanding, everyone who enters can expect their design to receive enthusiastic respect and careful consideration.  Given the vast talent pool here and Ctaulbee's title choice of Ghost in the Shell, the ingredients are in place for a visual feast.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!

Let's put on a good show!

Same here, but the "No" served it's purpose, lol

Good luck with the task Bunny! It certainly will not be an easy one! :)
