    Anyone here enjoy looking at book covers?

    There's a new contest this year called the Self-Published Science Fiction Competition. Over the next several months, 10 teams of judges will work their way through around 300 entries to finally decide on the ultimate winner.

    Right now, public voting is open for the most popular book cover. If you want to have a browse and vote, here's the link: SPSFC Cover Contest Top 100 - People's Choice . It runs until 11 September.

    I've entered a book into the SPSFC, but the cover (no, I didn't create it myself...) didn't make the cut for this part.

    You can get more information about the competition at: Home - SPSFC 2021

    Thanks for the info, some of those covers go from the ok to the really very good.

    Sorry to hear your cover didn't make it.

    I'd suggest everyone go have a look, especially if they like Sci-fi. I think I will go and rate a few of them myself.

    I don't spend a lot of time looking at covers, but it's been quite fun guessing what the book's like from the cover alone. And maybe I need to rethink my prejudices - somehow, a guy in a space suit against a "space/planet" background puts me right off ::unsure::

    There's some really nice artwork in there. Perhaps some I'd not be so fond of, but then it's all subjective anyway.

    I'll be honest - of the ten of them "The Star Collector" is the one that really catches my eye

    They all seem technically well done to me, and hopefully reflect the contents. Now it's time to wait and see which of the entries (the books, not just the covers) get cut at the next stage of the contest ::unsure:: .
