Christmas Book Cover Competition 2018 Winners!

« Back

We were so overwhelmed by the amount and quality of entries to our Christmas Book Cover competition that it was very hard to choose winners. After deliberating with Santa’s Elves, we’ve selected one winner and three runners-up in each age category. Each cover chosen has a festive design and the stories outlined in the blurb were perfect for Christmas, whether it was about superhero caterpillars, magical dinosaurs or a hedgehog who woke up too early on Christmas day. Thank you to everyone for sharing your wonderful book cover designs with us and making us feel incredibly festive in the run-up to Christmas!

Hip hip hooray to all the winners and runners-up! Click on the images below to make them bigger so you can enjoy the festive designs and read the amazing story ideas in all their glory. The three overall lucky winners will each receive a £25 National Book Token gift card in a special festive design.
