What is the contest's process?
To enhance the value of cover of the month contest, we have a Selection Committee comprised of experienced people in designing and books to choose the best-designed covers for the voting rounds.
The Selection Committee will choose the book covers based on the following criteria:
- The clarity and creativity of the cover.
- How well the cover describes the book.
- The uniqueness of the cover.
- The legiblity of the fonts with the cover.
- The size of book covers; standard book cover size (over sized over stretched cover will not be accepted. The only exception to children's book ).
The selected participants will be informed through email about their cover's voting page in the contest.
Note: The covers will be accepted or rejected based on the sole discretion of the Selection Committee of AllAuthor. Unfortunately we can't give you individual feedback about your selection.
The voting process is divided into four rounds throughout the month. Each round happens for one week; hence the total duration of the contest is four weeks.
|Round 1||All selected book covers for voting round||1st - 7th|
|Round 2||Top 100 book covers from Round I||8th - 14th|
|Round 3||Top 50 book covers from Round II||15th - 21st|
|Final Round||Top 24 book covers from Round III.||22nd - Month end|
