The winning book trailer will intrigue potential readers by bringing to life the content and tone of the book with polish, sophistication, and creativity. Entries can employ live action, animation, or even a text-driven approach. Trailers may focus on key plot points or use excerpts from the book on-screen.
The following features should appear in all entries: book cover, book title, and author name. Beyond that, we encourage you to use your imagination.
