When the Inception Comic Cover Art Contest launched, we asked you to design a cover for the comic prequel of Inception, The Big Under. And with the many, many quality entries we received, we could have covers for a whole series of comics!

The entries have been sorted and the judges have narrowed them down to 15 amazing semi-finalists. From these semi-finalists, the final three winners will be selected by the writer and director of Inception, Christopher Nolan!

We give you... the 15 semi-finalist of the Inception Comic Cover Art Contest!

Please note: If during the finalist judging any one of the semi-finalists becomes ineligible (for example, if the entrant cannot produce a file in the required resolution) the semi-finalist judges will replace the disqualified entry with a new selection to be considered by the final judges.

They should have called this contest design a promotional poster for the film. The entry that won doesn't give any idea about the story contained in the comic and I would have to say if I saw that cover at the comic book store I would have to pass.
why did this one not get chosen? [link]

i know its mine, but im wondering if i somehow broke a rule or anything.
is it because i changed the color of the text "the big under"? Because no where in the rules does it say i cant do that.
umm honestly, not much of a concept behind yours minus the pics of the actors,so it doesnt hold anything true compared to the concept of "Inception"
and a silhouette of a train does?

The silhouette of the train represents the train that is referenced within the movie. It's a reoccuring part of the story and plot:

"Mal: I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where the train will take you?
Cobb: Because you'll be together."

It's how Mal and Cobb woke up from limbo.
Have you seen the movie?

Your cover is good, it has good technical skills in it, but it lacks creativity and a relation to the movie other than the actors. The pictures that were chosen intertwine a lot of concepts from the movie in a creative fashion.
i see
good point
Lol idk about that one o.O. But personally, I liked how yours came out lol

Is there an admin that can please explain why the original #12 entry that was posted up on the 11th is no longer up and has been swapped out?

could have been a couple of things. the artist could of not provided proof of citizenship or age, or could have just not responded to the email asking for the proof.
