Meet June’s Connects Challenge winner!

Turn off the music for a sec, our aspiring album cover designers… we have something to tell you! The great Dean Pattrick of Nokia MixRadio and our panel of judges have spoken.

The coolest covers made even cooler

For those who need their memory refreshed, June’s #ConnectsChallenge (previously known as #LumiaChallenge) was to recreate the cover of your favourite music album, using any device and any materials you wanted. Lots of room for creativity there, and lots of creativity was exactly what we found in the flood of entries for this challenge. It looks like you all had fun!

Without keeping you in suspense any longer, let’s reveal the runners up as well as the one and only winner of a Nokia X! Scroll down and prepare for moments of revelation, discovery and laughter… at least that’s what we experienced when looking at these. Original album cover designers for these pop stars and rock legends, eat your heart out!
