We’ve previously posted the work of Wattpad’s talented community of cover creators, and today we wanted to highlight how they’ve previously reimagined covers for classic novels on Wattpad.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be holding a contest to see who the can create the best covers for five more classic novels, from Mary Shelley, to Melville, and H.G. Wells.

If you’re not sure how to create a cover, try out the new iOS Wattpad Cover Creator app, free in the app store. If you’d rather work on web, you can also try free websites like PicMonkey, or resize a cover you have already made here.

Cover Contest Details:

1. Pick one of the following stories on Wattpad:


Oliver Twist*

Three Musketeers

Anne of Green Gables

Moby Dick

2. How to submit - choose one of the following:

- Tweet it @Wattpad with the hashtag #WattpadCoverOff

- Post a link to your cover on this chapter

- Post it in the Multimedia Club thread on classic covers

3. Dates & Prizes

- Submit your cover by August 29th.

- We’ll announce the winners in early September, and the winners will have a chapter of their classics dedicated to them.

*Note: we have switched out an HG Wells title for a Charles Dickens title. Due to Wattpad's international audience, we wanted to choose an older work that has been in the public domain for longer. Apologies for anyone who created an HG Wells cover, we'll keep you and your covers in mind for future contests!
