David Kudler will lead a presentation on cover design at our December meeting and once again we will hold our annual book cover contest. (This is our fourth year, so it’s becoming a tradition, and it on its way to an institution!)
Since we’re not meeting in person, here’s how we’ll manage our contest:
- 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. We can only accept one entry per author.
- Send a copy of the front cover to [email protected]. At least 1000 pixels wide. Deadline is November 20.
- 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.
Winner(s) get a free afternoon workshop in 2021. The prize must be used no later than the November 2022 meeting.
We look forward to seeing your covers.
