The most popular posts on our website in recent years (by far), have been our lists of the Worst Christian Book Covers:

[ 2012 ] [ 2013 ] [ 2014 ] [ 2015 ]

 
So, we are planning to run a list again this year, but we need your help to make this year’s list even better!

CONTEST: OVER $100 IN PRIZES!!!

We will pick three winners from your submissions:

1st Prize: $25 Amazon Gift Card +
2 Year Subscription to our Print Magazine ($35 value)

2nd Prize: $10 Amazon Gift Card +
2 Year Subscription to our Print Magazine ($35 value)

3rd Prize:  2 Year Subscription to our Print Magazine
($35 value)

 


So, here’s how this will work….


1) PREPARE:

Take a look at previous years’ lists for inspiration
[ 2012 ] [ 2013 ] [ 2014 ] [ 2015 ]

then go here to start searching for bad covers.
(LGT: Amazon’s list of Christian books released in 2016)

GUIDELINES:

– The book must have been originally published in 2016.
– Kindle and Print books are both eligible, though will we limit the number of Kindle ebooks on our final list
– We are the final arbiters of whether any book is “Christian” or not (Generally, if it is in Amazon’s Christian book section, we’ll accept it).

 

2) SUBMIT:

Using the comments below, here’s what you need to submit:

a) You will get bonus points if you share the link to this contest.  Tell us where you shared it: Twitter, Facebook, Blog, etc.

b) Include a link to Amazon or elsewhere which has a large-ish picture of the cover.

c) Include a BRIEF comment on why you choose this cover (the funnier/snarkier, the better).

d) (OPTIONAL) You can actually include a picture in your comment, by clicking the icon in the bottom left corner. This might help your entry get more votes.

***  You are welcome to submit as many entries as you want, but submit each one as a separate comment.

 

3) VOTE:

Using the up and down arrows on DISQUS, tell us which submissions you like and don’t like (You can only vote once up or down for any submission).
Your votes will play an essential role (but not the only role) in our choosing the winner.

The contest will end on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 1, 2016 at 11PM PT…

Here are a couple of examples of possible worst Christian book covers from 2016… These were pulled from our Lists of Awful Christian Book Covers from:  March 2016 and July 2016.
[You are welcome to submit for the contest a cover from these lists that you think should be in the running for the WORST book cover…]
