If you already have an online presence this is probably a great venue for you to get some extra publicity.
Submissions are due October 9th for short stories between 2,500 and 5,000 words.
First will be the "Nomination Round" where reviews, ratings, and social network buzz contribute toward a nomination. There will also be 4 wildcards as determined by a panel of judges.
Then the Battle Round begins for the best 8 nominations and 4 wildcards.
The top 3 survivors proceed to the Jury Round where the winner will be named.
Free to enter, good luck!
