Our flash fiction contest is back!
New prize pool structure—an even $1000.
Yes, a big change this year. Rather than starting out with a "minimum $200" prize pool that grows with each entry, we will now have a predetermined prize based on the previous entry totals. This makes our admin processes simpler, and it gives people who are new to the contest a clearer expectation for the outcome. If the number of entries grows beyond this $1000 projection, we will increase the prize pool of the next contest.
The total prize pool is $1000 CAD:
Entry is $5 CAD.
Entries will be screened by David Brown, with final judging by Michelle Barker.
Deadline: March 31, 2021
