The New Covey Awards

You may have heard of the New Covey Awards before. You might even know that they’re back after their hiatus. But, in case you don’t, I thought I’d post a little bit about this site and tell you how, as an Independent Author, you can use it.

The New Covey Awards were started in 2007 by Jamieson Wolf to recognize excellence in book cover design. However, it only lasted three months before it was shut down. That’s when the New Covey Awards was born and, two months later, expanded to include book trailer awards as well as cover art awards.

There are two awards given in each category. For the covers, The Most Eye Catching Cover is decided by popular vote (ie a flash poll on the left had side of the site) while Most Artistic Cover is awarded by a group of judges.  Most Intriguing Trailer is also by popular vote, done the same way, while the judges award the Most Artistic Trailer.

The idea behind this is that the awards run every month, though there has been a hiatus between September and June. But now, the awards are back.

And now the question: Why would you want to enter?

One word: Exposure. When you enter your trailer or book cover, it is listed with links to your websites and/or blogs,  as well as a synopsis of your book.  You might not win, but people who go to the site to vote will see your book, and your links, and the more places you have links, the better it is.  And who knows, maybe you WILL win, and wouldn’t that be very cool?

It’s easy to enter your book cover or trailer into the awards.

Here are the instructions for entering a books cover:
