The Christian Authors Network (CAN) is delighted to announce the CAN Excellence in Marketing Awards.
This special, one-of-a-kind contest encourages and recognizes marketing excellence of Christian authors. Each participant will receive feedback on their marketing campaign. The awards are open from December 1, 2022 until February 1, 2023.
What do winners receive?
The marketing award winners will be announced to 400 Christian media, including several TV networks; press releases will be sent to Publishers Weekly and ECPA. The top three winners will win a publicity packet including a book announcement (book cover, description, buy button) sent to 20,000 Christian readers, 400 book review bloggers, and 1400 Christian retailers. Winners will be featured on the Christian Authors Network blog and several other blogs. Award trophies will be presented at The Well Conference on April 22, 2023.
What have other winner recipients said about the awards?
Adria Wilkens won for the promotion of her book and brand, The Joy Box Journal. Adria shares her experience, “I continue to keep my award on my desk to look at it every day. The award had a huge impact on me and my speaking. It took me to another level and continues to be something that makes me smile when I think about the whole event.
Linda Goldfarb & Kelly Harris won the award for promotion of their book Lovey Mouse in The Night Before Christmas. Linda Goldfarb shares her experience, “As recipients of the award, for our Lovey Mouse children’s books, Kelly Harris and I were elated with the outpouring of interview requests from bloggers and radio hosts. The exposure was a catalyst to marketing and sales opportunities we would not have experienced on our own. Thank you, Christian Author’s Network for all you do to encourage and equip authors to excel in their craft and calling.
Who can enter the awards?
Independent and traditional Christian authors are welcome to enter the awards with any book-length Christian nonfiction or fiction marketing campaign. The marketing campaign must have started between January 1 and December 31, 2022. (The campaign does not need to encompass the entire twelve month span, but it should begin within those dates.) The book itself is not judged, getting the word out about that Christian book is the contest goal.
