An Axe to Grind – Now closed to submissions

The contest is now closed.

Thanks so much to everyone who submitted!! I will be screening the last of the entries this weekend and sending the shortlist to Michelle. Participants will be notified once judging is complete.

And the tally is in!  We had an unbelievable 107 entries, for a final prize pool of $535 CAD (or $395 USD). We're really blown away by how well this contest did, so an extra thanks goes out to anyone who retweeted us, shared our link, and helped spread the word.

Stay tuned for our next contest – the First Page Challenge.

Join our newsletter for updates (link in bottom-right corner).
