Welcome to another of our Conference Spotlights from the
DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER conference.
The Annual Covers Contest is here!
We are following in the footsteps of last year’s team and have made the Covers Contest an electronic only competition. Traditionally, covers were displayed at the conference in two categories – Long and Short. The winners were voted on and the winner announced at the end of the conference.
We will still be announcing winners at the end of the conference but the voting will be done online by all the Romance Writers of Australia’s membership. So even if you don’t go to the conference, you don’t miss out on this. Cool, eh?
We received 50 covers this year, and based on the entries, we have now put them into their respective categories.
**8.30am – Please note if you have voted already before this post went up – there have been a couple of adjustments in the categories marked with +. Our apologies. **
*2.45pm – Please note an extra cover has been added, with apologies to Anne Gracie ** #

Voting has opened and all you have to do is go to the Password Protected voting pages for each of these (each category above is a link). Voting is only open to RWA members. Members should have received a newsletter with the password in their inbox. (Check your spam filter just in case. *grin*)
Voting will close on 5th August 2012, and you can only vote for one cover for each category.
If you want to become a member, please go to our website.
Take a look at the covers. Spectacular aren’t they? Have fun choosing!
Look out for the next conference spotlight on the 23rd July.
