    FIRST COVER CONCEPT PRIORITY - If another artist submits an almost identical cover, we will give the first artist preference on the concept. This protects your new design concepts. It is good to learn from other designs, not ok to copy.

    Multiple Image Elements Please! - selecting a single stock image of people watching TV is not likely to be a winner. New TV is Interactive, has video Apps (not mobile apps), allows for direct purchase of items by TV remote, and other advanced features.
