Although submissions are now closed, you can still vote on the ideas submitted for our Coversourcing competition to design the UK jacket for Jeff Howe’s Crowdsourcing book

Howe defines Crowdsourcing as “the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a designated agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people in the form of an open call”. So that’s what Random House and Creative Review did. In our Coversourcing competition, we asked readers, to create the cover design for the UK edition of Crowdsourcing.

Visitors to the Coversourcing site can vote for their favourite designs to form a shortlist of entrants which will be taken forward to a panel vote to decide the final jacket.

The panel will consist of the following people:

Jeff Howe, author of Crowdsourcing and WIRED Editor
Richard Ogle, Random House Art Director
Patrick Burgoyne, Editor, Creative Review
Angus Hyland, Partner, Pentagram Design UK

The chosen jacket design will be printed on all UK editions of Crowdsourcing, which will be available in bookshops from August 2008.

The shortlist currenty includes entries from Vicky Simmons:

One of the few that really manages to relate the concept of Crowdsourcing to the creation of a jacket image – Vicky co-opted passers-by to create it.
