Winter 2011 – 2012 Elephant Prize – In The Snake Magazine

2 December 2011

We are currently accepting short story submissions for the Winter 2011-2012 Elephant Prize. Submissions must be under 7500 words. Multiple submissions are accepted: you may submit as many stories as you like.

There is a $10 reader’s fee per entry. We understand the reluctance many writers have toward reader’s fees. The contest entry fee allows us to pay out prizes and keep our site running. We try to keep our fees at a minimum. If you do not wish to pay the fee, you may still submit your story to us via Standard Submission, which implies no fee.

All contest entries are also considered as standard submissions and are eligible for the standard payment of $50 per story if accepted.

Contest submissions will be judged based on the criteria listed on our Guidelines page.

Contest prizes are as follows:

First Place prize is $500 and publication in In The Snake.
Second Place earns $125 and possible publication.
Third Place earns $75 and possible publication.
In addition, 10-20 finalists will receive certificates of honorable mention.

Contest begins on Tuesday November 15, 2011,

Deadline: Monday, January 16, 2012

Winners will be announced on March 31, 2012
