Welcome to Uncovered Book Cover Awards, where we judge the covers of printed books and highlight each month’s winner in our Uncovered Video Broadcast. Our intention is to uncover the best book artwork, whether self-published or traditionally published. The designers at Adazing are responsible for the book covers of New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today best selling authors, so we know a great cover when we see one, and we want to give credit to the authors who are putting in the work to have truly cutting-edge book covers. While we look at all books and judge them fairly, we only provide reviews or comments on covers selected as award winners. There are two categories of awards each month:
1) The first award is for the book cover chosen by our staff as the most well-designed for it’s genre and audience.
2) The other award winner will be chosen by vote on Pinterest. The book cover with the most votes will be selected as the winner and highlighted in the broadcast.
