Have You Seen the Cover Design Awards?

Cover art is very important for a first impression of your book. Although, we aren’t necessarily supposed to judge a book by its cover, I tend to sway towards the designs before I pick up a book. I never knew about awards for cover design but the Book Designer does.

e-Book Cover Design Awards, February 2015


Welcome to the e-Book Cover Design Awards. This edition is for submissions during February, 2015.

This month we received:

98 covers in the Fiction category
27 covers in the Nonfiction category

Comments, Award Winners, and Gold Stars

I’ve added comments (JF: ) to many of the entries, but not all. Remember that the aim of these posts is educational, and by submitting you are inviting comments, commendations, and constructive criticism.

Thanks to everyone who participated. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Please leave a comment to let me know which are your favorites or, if you disagree, let me know why.

Although there is only winner in each category, other covers that were considered for the award or which stood out in some exemplary way, are indicated with a gold star:

Award winners and Gold-Starred covers also win the right to display our badges on their websites, so don’t forget to get your badge to get a little more attention for the work you’ve put into your book.

Also please note that we are now linking winning covers to their sales page onAmazon or Smashwords. READ MORE HERE!
