Once again, at our December meeting, David Kudler will lead a presentation on cover design and we will hold our annual book cover contest. It’s our contest’s sixth year.
Here’s are the instructions:
- The contest is open to any book authored by a current BAIPA member, whether you worked with a designer on the cover or you designed it yourself. Any year of publication is fine. (Even next year, if the cover is finished.) You can submit a cover you’ve submitted before, unless you won. Only one entry per author.
- Fill out your contact information and genre and upload your cover here. Ideally at least 1000 pixels wide.
- Deadline is November 17, and you must be a current BAIPA member prior to that date as well. If you are not yet a member, please go here and take advantage of our special offer of $50 for six months, with automatic renewal.
- We will put the covers together into slides that we’ll display at the meeting and then we’ll use a Zoom poll and everyone present will get three votes.
(Last year, we grouped the books into1(a) nonfiction, (b) memoir, (c) mystery & thriller, (d) children’s, and (e) general fiction, historical fiction, and poetry. This year’s categories will be determined by the volume of submissions in each category.)
Winner(s) get a free workshop in 2024.
We look forward to seeing your covers.
