When entering the contest, please pay with a credit card or other card accepted by Pay Pal. E-mail a pdf or word document of your book or graphic novel to the web site e-mail 'email@example.com'. Your book will be judged at the next quarterly contest and you will receive your results! If you win in any of the categories you will get a digital certificate and be forever known as a 'Christian Book Awards' Winner. The $25 cost is a very modest contest fee, and covers the cost of having award winning artists judge the contest / create digital award certificates with their time, and then to help defray the cost of operating the web site.
