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 publishing industry for their merits in appropriateness for the market, level of conceptual thinking, and quality of execution according to contemporary design standards and aesthetics. The Top Shelf Awards focus solely on these artistic and technical merits, without considering sales performance, reader engagement, or market reach.

Winners are officially announced and presented with an award at ECPA's annual PubU event, where the industry’s design community gathers to learn and network.
