The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) has announced 10 finalists for the Design award and nine for the Consumer Research award in the ECPA/dp Book Cover Award program. ECPA reported a record-breaking year of submissions for the awards program, which is sponsored by Dickinson Press.

Managed by Faceout Studio and highlighting the art aspect of book covers, the ECPA Book Cover Design Award was introduced this year and focuses on the design merits of a book cover, including the level of conceptual thinking, the quality of the execution and appropriateness for the market. Three finalists are announced in three publisher categories, with a tie in the small publisher category.

Design finalists in the large publisher category are: Heroes and Monsters by Josh James Riebock (Baker Books/Baker Publishing Group); Love Does by Bob Goff (Thomas Nelson); and The Teavangelicals by David Brody (Zondervan).

Managed by RISC AmeriScan and highlighting the science aspect, the Consumer Research award is based on the consumer-buying research of the Research Institute for Social Change (RISC), which measures consumer motivations as it relates to cover design and book sales. Covers are judged and analyzed on how well their design elements match characteristics of their intended audience.

Research finalists in the large publisher category are: The Queen by Steven James (Revell/Baker Publishing Group); Soul Detox by Craig Groeschel (Zondervan); and The Voice Bible (Thomas Nelson).
