Welcome to the BookViral Millenium Book Cover award entry page. Now in its third year, the award continues to showcase and promote the best in book cover design for fiction and non-fiction titles with thousands of entries from authors and cover designers around the world. It is open to entries for 10 months each year and currently runs from July 21st, 2017 to May 21st, 2018 when judging and voting will begin. Open to Indie/Self-Published and traditionally published authors, books in any genre are eligible for entry. Entry is free subject to the conditions given below.  


An author or their cover designer may submit up to three title covers in any given year. The competition is open to authors worldwide; books must be in English. Any length book is eligible. BookViral reserves the right to reject covers which might be considered obscene, in bad taste or lacking in creative compilation.


Let's be clear though. The competition celebrates the best in book cover design and a lack lustre off the shelf cover with stock images is not what we are looking for. We are looking for covers which excite the imagination and hint at the adventure to be found in the words to be read.


To submit an entry, please use the link at the bottom of this page and enter your details.  Please ensure your details are correct when submitting. Your cover must be submitted as a jpeg file or it will not be uploaded.


With over 1.8  million visitors in 2017 to the BookViral site, our pages receive a constant stream of visitors from potential readers. We take great pride in maintaining the sites integrity and the quality of titles we promote. We also value the views of our readers which is why we have introduced our Readers Favourite Cover Award*


The decision of the BookViral team will be final. Unfortunately due to the large volume of titles we receive we are unable to discuss the merits of any given book, or on occasion why we might reject a title for inclusion in the competition.


* Our Readers Favourite Cover Award is a secondary promotion award of $1000 and is awarded to the cover design which receives the most votes during the competition period. It is exclusive to current and new Fast Track Authors. Please see acknowledgement email when entering for full details.

Each month we select one cover and author to receive our Brilliant Book Cover Award and the winning cover is selected from the top ten covers you voted for throughout the month. It's easy to vote, just scroll down to you find the cover you like, click on it to see it in a pop up and when you are ready to vote simply click on the vote button below the cover.
