Top Shelf

ECPA created the Top Shelf Book Cover Awards to celebrate the year's best book designs in Christian publishing.  Covers are judged by top designers in the industry for their merits in appropriateness for the market, level of conceptual thinking, and quality of execution.

Judges are not bound by a number of covers to choose, but choose the designs that stand out as the best of the year.

Winners are officially announced and presented with an award at ECPA's annual PUBuWinning covers are featured in an Annual printed by Color House Graphics and distributed to the industry's designers and design professionals. 


  • 2017 submissions open now until August 31:  NOMINATE
