Being involved in some community votes for graphics in various projects, I agree with this: open vote is not a good idea. IMO, cheating is not the main problem, the problem is voters usually does not have the knowledge to make a good choice.

We can discuss how wide we want to open the process. We will need to have a reasonable scope to cover all interests. In addition to the Artwork team, we should at least include the Distribution team and a small selection from the Marketing team. Having the Artwork team select the nominees will make the vote a lot less painful, but closing the vote to just the Artwork team may leave us with a selection that nobody wants to use.

It is a good solution.

The opposite could be also used: the Artwork team select a few and from those public vote select one.

But I still think this can be decide just inside the Artwork team.
