        • appropriateness for the market
        • level of conceptual thinking
        • quality of execution

Judges are not bound by number of covers to choose as they have the freedom to truly choose the BEST designs of the year. Winning covers are featured in an Annual printed by Color House Graphics, designed by Faceout Studio, and distributed to the industry's designers and design professionals.  Winners are officially announced and presented with an award at ECPA's annual PUBu.

 

Top industry designers will announce and analyze the year's best covers
