Book Cover Design Award Contest!

It is our great honor and pleasure to inform you that we are starting a book cover design awards competition on our self-publishing and book marketing blog!

The competition will take place every month and we will choose one winner every month. Our judge will review and evaluate each submitted cover design and provide feedback on all designs. This will help you learn how to design effective book covers in order to market your book more effectively!

Although this competition is primarily of a competitive nature, it is also meant to be educational because we will try to offer as much guidance as possible in our short comments. We will do our best with our comments and suggestions to help you better understand what design concepts work – and what design concepts to improve – in each cover design.

We invite all authors, self-publishers, publishers, and designers to submit their works to this book cover design award contest.

This Book Cover Design Award is not just an award, it is the indicator of quality and perfection in design. Winning our Award is a certificate of excellence for designers and proof of quality for authors. Winners of this Award will reap the benefits of having an eye-catching book cover design that captures the attention of their target audience.

When submitting to this book cover design award contest keep in mind that your submission will be evaluated on multiple dimensions.

The criteria we look for in each cover submitted is: composition – how the graphic works on the cover, use of fonts, quality of illustration or photo and placement on the cover, and how much the cover design is tailored to the target audience.

Judge’s comments will give you a guide and inspiration. Our submission entry fee is free!

Remember, a good book cover design is the best marketing tool you have to sell your book. Let us help you produce an award-winning cover for your book to boost your sales!

Submit your cover designs on our submission page.
