    So now we know the official name of Linkin Park's next album "A Thousand Suns" I want to start a contest to see who can make the most creative and interesting album art. Feel free to create something from scratch, use existing Linkin Park logos and fonts or create something new entirely. It's upto you! Just make sure it's exciting and has potential to be the actual album cover art. Here are the terms:

    - Try and keep it to actual size, I think it's 12cm x 12cm for an album cover, if you can't work it out, use a template from the net.

    - Nothing offensive or stupid. Although I want this to be as fun as the Mike Photoshop Contest, I also want the entries to be credible and showcase talent and ideas!

    - I'll give this a week for people to get entries in, and will figure out a way to determine a winner by poll! I don't really have any ideas for a prize, just bragging rights at this point, but I'll see if I can think of anything over the course of the week.

    - Have fun! Can't wait to see your entries and hopefully we get some great submissions!

    You have got a great idea there. I think with more work, that can be one bad-ass album cover.

    My album cover is in the works right now. It is actually similar to yours Anthony (am I correct?).

    Yea, you are the few guys who know what A stands for.
    I think I'm pretty sure how to handle the logo, but still need time to picture the whole scene.

    I can say even now that these two are better than whatever the real cover will be. Great job guys!

    You sir, win!
    You've put up three amazing covers.

    THIS COVER IS NOT MINE, IT WAS SUBMITTED BY MELON1992 ON THE LINKIN PARK LIVE FORUMS, AND I THOUGHT I MIGHT AS WELL SHARE IT WITH YOU.

    It's basic, but it works.
