Here is a sample, but very complete rules are set out on their web site.


Closing date for submissions is 11:59am PDT on December 20, 2015.

Entries must be between 1,000 and 5,000 words.  They can be from any literary genre (History, Fantasy, Young Adult, Crime, Science Fiction, etc); however, we exclude and will disqualify entries that are obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, pornographic, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or violate any law.  Entries must be appropriate for reading and viewing by the general public.  Appropriateness will be determined by the Competition Sponsor, Neoglyphic Entertainment, Inc.

We welcome all authors from the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec).  We are open to both unpublished and previously published authors (as long as your entry to THIS competition has not been previously published or won another writing competition).  And to state the obvious: you must be the original author of the entry - no plagiarism please.


FYI - I  (Alice) am not connected to this contest other than receiving information about it and felt it was worth passing on to our members.

I'm just curious why they exclude writers from Quebec.  ???

I wondered too Heidi. Wondered if Quebec might have different laws or such that govern such things.

Maybe someone from the area might have a better idea.

Maybe just because they're French.  Isn't that a good enough reason ;-)
