Midnight Sun Cover Contest

Do you have a stellar cover that catches the eye and draws the reader in? Alaska Romance Writers of America (AKRWA) is sponsoring a new contest! The Midnight Sun Cover Contest 2019 is a chance for published authors (digital and print) to win some great prizes! Even better, every entry will be on printed, visual display to over 150 voracious readers at the 2019 AWG Writer’s Conference who will vote for the top entries! (And perhaps buy your books!)

WHO CAN ENTER:

Any author can enter their book cover for a romance novel, novella, or short story published prior to August 30, 2019, either electronically or in print, in the United States for the first time.

HOW TO ENTER:

Step 1: Register for the contest

Step 2: Pay entrance fee ($15.00 per entry)

Step 3: In an email to contest@akrwa.com attach book’s cover in digital format (JPEG format with 300 dpi or greater).

 

THE DEADLINE:

The deadline for submissions is midnight (Alaska Standard Time) on September 1, 2019.

JUDGING:

All entries will be placed on prominent display in printed format at the Alaska Writer’s Guild (AWG) 2019 conference, co-sponsored by AKRWA. Conference attendees and presenters (approximately 150) will select first-round entries via ballot box.

FINAL JUDGING:

Trained judges will select the top winner from the top ten entries selected at the conference. Final judging will occur at the annual AKRWA Writing Retreat in early October, with the winner announced in late October. Honorable Mentions: This contest seeks a single, most compelling cover; however, Honorable Mentions will be awarded, including the prestigious librarian’s choice award.

PRIZES:

Finalist and Honorable Mention covers will be published on the AKRWA website with the Finalist cover receiving prime location. The Finalist will also be announced on the AWG website. In addition, the Finalist will receive an electronic badge that can be placed on book covers, websites, or anywhere the winner deems appropriate and a $25 Visa cash card.
