30 Covers, 30 Days (Abbreviated 30C30D) is a challenge that began during NaNoWriMo 2009. Chris Papasadero of Fwis, a graphic design firm based in New York City, aimed to design thirty covers for thirty Wrimos. Wrimos were selected based on the interestingness of their titles and excerpts. Nominations by other users didn't hurt. In the end, Chris created nineteen covers for participants, all of which were posted on the forum designed for the project and on the NaNoWriMo blog.

30 Covers, 30 Days returned in 2010 and 2011 with cover designer John Gall heading the team that designed the covers. A team of 30 designers took on one cover each. By the end of November thirty covers had been created for thirty lucky Wrimos. [1] In 2012 Christopher C.H. Simmons and Debbie Millman selected the team of designers. Debbie Millman has selected the team of designers on her own since 2013.

30 Posters, 30 Days was the Script Frenzy sister challenge.
