Kilpailun tehtävänanto

I need a book cover design for a manuscript I am in the process of editing.
It needs to be submitted in (at least) a high res jpeg file.

There are no ongoing royalties as I cannot guarantee the sales of the book so I must have exclusive copyrights to the image. As such I may ask you to prove the source of the photo/images you are using, especially if they contain people, to ensure that they have been purchased from a legitimate source of commercially free, uncopyright images (shutterstock, pixabay, etc) and have no copyright entitlements against them.

Anyone using images I find have been fraudulently picked up from elsewhere will be rejected and reported. I kid you not I have run contests where people tried to use a image from LOTR and claimed it to be their own design!

It must show the title: The Library of Souls
It must show my name as: K F Williams

The book is about a woman who becomes tapped in an old fortress in the mountains which has hundreds of stone statues within it by a creature made of ice and snow. I would like the cover to be about their final battle. It takes place in a cobbled courtyard which has fountain in the centre.

I have no images or set preconceived ideas about layout or fonts so anything is welcome and I will do my best to issue feedback on all entries.

Please do not send submissions on a book style layout, these styles make the covers appear very small and difficult to judge and entries will be rejected/ignored.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    Hello CH, pls ask all designer to put the source link of their images that used on the cover. That way you avoid to have difficulties with copyright. This is a basic rule in design and sign of respect for others work. Regards!

    Hi K!
    Could you please tell us a little more about the type of graphic design you would like to have for your book? You can also give us some examples of the book covers you liked. It helps a lot to start the work with a better understanding of what you imagine for the cover of your book!
    Thanks!

      I would like the cover to feature the cobblestone courtyard of a fortress / castle. It is in the mountains so I don't expect to see a cover design of meadows covered in flowers if you want to put in a background. In the fortress are statues of people, not skeletons or gargoyles. In the center of the courtyard there is a fountain. The main character is female, and if included should be fully dressed for winter weather, no design of a skimpily dressed woman will be considered. If you must include a weapon it should be a dagger / small knife. The creature is an elemental beast made of snow and ice, think claws, teeth and eyes in a winter storm.
