Published on: 30 April 2021 Author: Robbie Hunt

Despite the difficulties surrounding this year's competition due to Coronavirus, we saw loads of fantastic entries! We were inundated with Design a Book Cover competition entires as part of Bookbuzz, our reading programme for secondary schools.

After lots of deliberation amongst ourselves (no fist fights we promise) we have finally chosen our winner!

The winning entry is by Chinwendu from Elmgreen School, who designed a book cover for The Haven, by Simon Lelic.

Our first runner-up is Christina from St Mary's Calne who designed a book cover for City of Ghosts, by Victoria Scwab.
