This is the hub page for the Nominations for the 2013/2014 'RAVENHEART Award for best Fantasy Book Jacket/artist.

The links from this page will take you to each artists page, which will show pictures of the Nominated book jackets and as much detail as we can find about the artists.


Ravenheart Award:

The Ravenheart Award is to celebrate the hard working artists of the fantasy genre, whose covers tantalise and enchant readers. The award is open for any Fantasy book published in English in the year of nomination with the winner being crowned 'Ravenheart Fantasy Artist of the Year' for their work. With so many hours of hard work put into the book jackets that help make a title so special we felt that the artists deserve to be recognised.


Our trophy for this comes from silvertrophy.com and is a beautifully cut crystal award. As with the Legend Award the winner will be crowned at our ceremony at the London's Magic Circle in June. 

Voting for the first round closes on the 13th April, 23.59 with the short list announced at Eastercon.
