City of Rockingham Short Fiction Awards 2013

The 2013 City of Rockingham Short Fiction Awards are now open, with over $2000 in prizes to be won.

Authors can submit up to three stories. Entered stories must be inspired by, drawn upon, or use the theme of the artwork "Brothers" by Cherry Lee (1999), which can be found on the entry form. Individual stories cannot be entered in more than one category, and must be original, unpublished, not have received an award in another competition, and not be under consideration elsewhere from the time of entry in awards until the official announcement of winners.

To ensure anonymity, please do not put names or contact details on the manuscript. Entries are read ‘blind’ by the judge, and all entries must be accompanied by a completed and signed Entry Form. All manuscripts will be destroyed after the competition, so please do not send original copies. Include a business-sized stamped self-addressed envelope to receive a results sheet.

Entries must be type-written, double-spaced on one side only of A4-size white paper, with pages numbered, a wide left-hand margin, and story title on each page. Post in an A4 envelope to:

City of Rockingham Short Fiction Awards,
Community Development Officer, Culture and Arts
Community Capacity Building, City of Rockingham,
PO Box 2142, Rockingham DC WA 6967

Entry is Free, and winners will be notified by phone or mail prior to the official announcement. The judge’s decisions is final, and no correspondence will be entered into. Any attempt to lobby judges or City of Rockingham employees, or influence decisions, may result in disqualification.
