    They've been talking about a complete site redesign over the past couple months... maybe they've finally gotten around to it and are working on getting it implemented?

    impawards is nice if youre not picky, but all the posters are covered in studio crap and have lots of unnecessary text.

    I used getvideo last night so I don't know what the problem is.

    I'd recommend checking out http://www.themoviedb.org/ as they have posters and wallpapers for most movies in the last few years and most of it is clean.

    A place I also use, but costs money is http://www.movieposterdb.com/
    They even have the most obscure and foreign films. Any popular movie is also going to most likely have a high resolution poster up to 5,000 pixels with no text

    That is what I am hoping as I need some artwork for films I have just encoded and half-tagged.

    @srl7741 and eschulist those are bad sites...

    I know the admin/moderators from GVAW come here every now and again, if they could tell us what is going on that would be great:)

    Or they could put a holding page up saying what is happening.

    Let's hope - quite simply the best artwork website.

    They tend to not have 'clean' artwork - not the proper dimensions, not high enough quality, from a scan instead of an original digital source, or littered with credits or movie dates on the poster.

    Fine if you're not that picky, but the getvideoartwork artwork is leaps and bounds better, as the iTunes artwork is high-resolution, clean, properly sized, normally is prepared from an original source, and looks much better and consistent across your entire iTunes library...

    Wouldn`t suprise me if Apple hasn`t had the site shut down for hosting their copyrighted artworks.

    Apple has NO copyrights to ANY of the artwork. They don't make the movies, they don't market the movies, they don't own the movies. :confused:

    It isn't Apple's artwork at all, the studios own the rights to them not Apple, if GVAW got closed down for giving decent artwork and another site like IPMAwards which has crap isn't that is crud.

    Well maybe one of the studios then, I love the site, I get all my artwork from there and don`t want it see it go. But it makes you wonder whats happened.

    My thoughts exactly. I was all ready to go through a bunch of things I've ripped and just needed to tag but then had to delay it all. Good to know its back!

    Hooray! They are as important a part of my work flow as Fairmount, Handbrake, and MetaX.

    The site went down about three days ago and the message would suggest it was taken down by the hosting service without the site owner's permission. It was/is a brilliant site with the best artwork online so I really hope it comes back. I know Apple don't "own" the artwork but the fact that this site was also hosting the "iTunes version" of many covers was probably going to draw unwanted attention sooner or later. If it doesn't return I hope the owner can upload the vast database to another service and perhaps give details here. Anyone got any further info?
