Helping Publishers Sell More Books in More Ways
Book Cover Design Award Contest! APSS members have access to a free book cover design awards competition that will take place every month -- with one winner every month. Judges 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.
The criteria we look for in each cover submitted are: 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. The 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 here: https://bit.ly/3t9gefB
Whether you are cooking a meal, planning a vacation or making a sales presentation, it is the preparation that determines the relative success of the outcome. The more time you put into preparing your sales presentation -- what you will say and how you will say it -- the more likely it is that you will get the order.
