In celebration of their newly released album “Nuages du Monde”, Delerium would like to see YOUR version of their album cover that represents their image!

All you have to do is design your own version of “Nuages du Monde” (please see contest guidelines below). The winning design will be selected by Vancouver-based duo, Delerium. The winner will receive $550 in prizes and have their design displayed on Delerium’s website!

The fifth full-length release, Nuages du Monde (Clouds of the World) continues the evolution of Delerium from creators of predominately instrumental filmic soundscapes to a fully-fledged vocal group. Featuring an array of renowned singers, Nuages, out now on Nettwerk Records, neatly combines the more overtly commercial pop of previous album Chimera (2005) with the lush sensual ambience and cloistered harmonies of Karma, a meld that bridges the gap between world music, new age electronics and modern classical.

I'm getting sick of the fact that DA keeps hosting competitions where only US and Canadin citizens can enter. I'm with the stock artists who are refusing to allow theur stock to be used for the competitions. DA, pull your bloody act together.

aequinox Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2006
I'd like to add my comment on the unfair process wich excludes whole Europe (among many others)! :( The deviation was ready when I noticed it in the terms. I'm depressed about it. :( I asked the helpdesk whether it's possible to enter, and in case of winning give an american deviant's name who receives the prize. They didn't answer yet... I don't care about the DNA pic, or the CD (although I love this music), I care about entering the contest which is everyone's right, I think.
Guitarian Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2006
So true, I for one am NOT entering anymore of these unfair contests!
I thought this site was a Community of Artists!
Shia-chan Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2006  Hobbyist
Ah, no... I thought I was going to enter this but I'm from Europe... T__T The music is awesome, though! :heart:
Hope I can at least buy the album~

A question?...
Between the DA website post here and the delerium website there appears to be two places to enter?... im seeing the information that is supposed to be entered on their site..aka name,phone, etc... but the rest of it routes back to the DA site here to submit images. Im also reading in the rules about release forms and such... I have no idea where those are even. Can anyone help with these two things. Thus far ive put my info in the delerium site and ive submitted an image on DA. Is that it, or am i missing a step or forms or whatnot?

amethyst42 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2006
The Contest is open to all individual residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) and legal residents of the United States over the age of 12

You just needed to read a little further :)

yes and legal residents of the United States over the age of 12
...but I am from Romania... That's why I wrote so. Regards,

the rules and eligibility sound fishy.
Ratafluke Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2006
I can understand about limiting the contest to US Americans and Canadias only - but boy! what a legalese! And that rule about the math contest sounds really strange. Even if I knew the band and lived in North America, I wouldn't enter this contest :hmm:
amethyst42 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2006
That's actually federal law in Canada. You have to answer a mathematical skill-testing question in order to win a contest. Don't ask me WHY, but it's a law.
Ratafluke Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2006
What? Now that seems to be coming straight from a "weirdest laws of the world" website. Did they think their students were doing too bad in the international PISA survey, and are trying to increase mathematical skills this way? :laughing:
Anyway, it was the legalese part that scared me off, not the math test.

I would love to join, but sadly I'm not in North America :(

Aside from odd regional restrictions, what is up with the 'design something for this band, but don't use their logo' bit?

That's... really odd.

I got one question if I submit my work to the contest here on DA do I also have to submit it to these guys on their website?All of this is a little confusing, help me out here.
depthskins Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2006
no, you just submit it here in the contest category.

'if a Canadian resident, must have correctly answered a mathematical skill-testing question posed during a telephone interview or in person, without mechanical or other assistance'

gosh that sounds weird. :|
am i missing a big bit of canadian general knowledge that makes that seem normal procedure?
depthskins Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2006
don't think it's general knowledge. who'd think u gotta answer a mathematical question in order to hold a contest.
lucias-tears Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2006   Photographer
all the rules are a bit off for me, its quite hard accepting that its only open to US and canadian residents nevermind all the other fine print.. ah well, still good luck to those eligible to enter!
