Prizes: The contest carries the following prizes:
First prize: US$250
Second prize: US$150
Third prize: US$100
All long-listed entries (top 10-15) get published in an anthology, and non-prize winning published entries will be paid US $50 each. Also, at the sponsors’ discretion, additional prizes may be declared for ‘Editors’ Pick’ category (in the last edition of the contest, four such prizes of US$50 each were declared).
There is no theme or genre restriction, and we are happy to read historical fiction, mystery/suspense, and horror. However, for consistency of presentation we cannot accept children’s stories, fantasy, young adult or chick lit; likewise hardcore science fiction is not something we are looking for, but are open to science-based/alternative history-based literary works. In case of doubt, it is best to query the editorial team.
Word count: Minimum 1500, maximum 7000.
Entry fee: US $10.
Judges: The panel of judges includes literary agents, authors and essayists.
