scott J4 got their new book cover by running a design contest:
What if you'd created the cover for "The Great Gatsby"? ... or, some other book?

What's your vision?
A black and white line drawing of a sloop, crashing upward into a wave. From the viewer's perspective, the sailboat is coming from the right, passing at about a 30 degree angle to port. Due to the wave, also angled up about 30 degrees. Only the front half to 2/3 of the vessel should be visible, with the aft hidden out of frame. The name of the boat is written along a plank, about 3 or 4 planks down from the top, on the fore half of the boat: "Perdition's Reprieve" It shouldn't appear stenciled; it should be neat and clear, as if applied with care, but obviously hand-painted. In similar writing as the boat's name (the title of the book), elsewhere on the cover: "A novel" and "by Scott Karick" I am open to location/presentation - but I don't want it to draw attention; I definitely would prefer it be smaller than the boat's name, and well away from the visual focus. I want the reader to wonder what's on the other side of the wave. The feelings preferably elicited: starkness, loneliness, a hint of desperation. And, of course, I want it to be iconic and "literary" I am not dead-set against the use of a single accent color, used sparingly, if it helps elicit the response I am looking for.
If your design is selected, I will credit you as the cover art designer in the book.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
scott J4 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
