    Default CBR Cover Contest - May Day! - May 17th through May 23rd

    Yesterday, as it seemed like support for my cover was growing, I began to think about cover ideas. Last time, we had a pretty specific contest, so I wanted to pick a more open broad affair for a change of pace. Its spring time and we are in the middle of May, summer is coming but its still cold outside sometimes. May is know for May day, Mother's day, Maypoles. Flowers and druids. People dancing around throwing their hands up in the air like they just don't care. And cake. May represents the last big hurrah of spring. So lets call this week's contest -

    May Day!

    "May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on May 1. It is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival. It is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the celebrations that the day includes."

    So some potential cover topics for May Day are:

    -Whatever speaks spring to you
    -Love
    -Dancing (extra points for dancing around a Maypole, perhaps?)
    -Flowers
    -Singing
    -Cake
    -Springtime celebrations

    For those who wish to be different - I sympathize - you can use the other meaning of May Day, a distress call. The origin of that word is actually French, m'aidez, meaning help me. So if you want to post someone in distress calling for help, that will be acceptable. Bonus points for someone celebrating spring, eating cake, dancing, and calling for help all at the same time!

    Here is a cover to get this party started:



    Rules (there are a few, uh, provisos, a, a couple of quid pro quos):

    Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    Cover must be from a Published Comic Book or Collected Volume!
    Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    Voting Begins 12 AM Tuesday and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday PST (3 AM EST)!
    Vote by Posting the name in BOLD of the Poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most! A vote need not be in bold, but it does make it easier to Count-The-Votes!
    The Winner of the Contest is the Entry with the MOST Votes after the Voting-Period!
    It's Okay to Discuss the Covers but if you Think Someone's Entry Doesn't Fit the Theme or Violates the Rules, you Don't need to Argue it in the thread, Simply Don't Vote for It!

    Plus:
    Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread and Thus will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    AFTER the Tie-Breaker Vote, Voting Ends and the Winner is Declared by The One Who Started the Thread (or assigned surrogate) and Thus will do the Counting!

    Frogs are, indeed, associated with spring. Ever hear of the Spring Peeper???

    Of course, if there is doubt, a person can always provide a rationale to the group for consideration. No pedants need apply to this contest!

    I hope so, IM! Seems like feast or famine for me in these contests, so maybe it's feast time once again.

    I know it's not technically what was asked for, but May Day is also International Workers Day, which means a lot to me, so would this also qualify?!
    There are many ways to kill. One can stab a knife in your guts; take away your bread; deprive you of the cure for your illness; put you in a miserable housing; torture you to death with work; take you to war; etc.
    Only a few of these are prohibited in our country.

    I was thinking the same thing! So if it's permissible, here's a typical Earth-30 May Day poster:

    I think it would, but this has to be played with it :



    Both the holiday and song always go together in my head.
