What registration gets you:
Registration gets you several guarantees: your book will be read by at least 2 different judges, and 3 top winners will be declared by December 20, 2020. No more waiting around 6 months into the following year, wondering if you’ll ever hear back. The top 3 winners will be published by 3-Day Novella, with a 1-year renewable contract, in addition to an immediate cash prize. The top 10 writers are immortalized on the website, and receive free copies of winning e-books.
1st Place: $500 cash advance*, plus publication.
2nd Place: $300 cash advance*, plus publication.
3rd Place: $200 cash advance*, plus publication.
All Shortlisters: Honourable mention on the website, and free copies of winners’ e-books.
*--Cash prizes are dependant on there being enough registration money to go around. As long as 30 or more people enter, the cash prizes will be awarded in full. The contest will go on regardless, and publication prizes will be awarded regardless.
