You have less than one month to enter the “Alex Awards,” a vinyl packaging competition named in honor of Alex Steinweiss, the creator of the first album cover for Columbia Records in 1939.

We will be honoring the best LP, 7-inch single and record covers, gatefolds, and the art on the vinyl itself in 10 different categories at a ceremony in Detroit the evening of Nov. 6 as part of “Making Vinyl,” the first B2B conference dedicated to the rebirth of the record manufacturing business. Register at http://www.makingvinyl.com

The Alex Awards were last produced annually from 2003 to 2006 as mostly a CD and DVD packaging competition, and it took vinyl’s resurgence for it return. Eligible entries require the record to be released in the past year, and maybe submitted by labels, art directors, design houses, packaging firms, brokers, artists, and pressing plants. The new edition of the Alex Awards focuses entirely on vinyl with one exception: Best Cassette Package (yeah, they’ve come back too)!

Entry fees start at $35 for a single category, compared with $125 when the competition first ran. Submissions (2 copies of record and payment) must be received by Sept. 30, 2017 to: Alex Awards, P.O. Box 271, Kings Park, NY 11754. International submissions are welcome.

Complete rules & regulations at: http://makingvinyl.com/alex-awards/

Making Vinyl and the Alex Awards are being presented by Colonial Purchasing Co-op, in association with Record Store Day and Jack White’s Third Man Pressing in Detroit.

Alex Steinweiss passed away in 2011 at 94. His son Leslie said of the return of the Alex Awards: “That sounds cool that the Alex Award rises again!”
