We are currently accepting submissions of climate fiction in two categories -- writing and visual art -- for the Flash Futures PNW: A Climate Fiction & Art Contest, now through SEPTEMBER 30th, 2023. A committee of judges will select submissions from each category to be printed in a zine. They will also select a first, second, and third place winner in each category to receive a cash prize, in addition to being printed in the zine.
1st Place (in each of 2 categories - writing and visual art): will receive $200
2nd Place (in each of 2 categories - writing and visual art): will receive $100
3rd Place (in each of 2 categories - writing and visual art): will receive $50
We will announce contest winners in winter 2023/2024, then we will launch the zine at an event in spring, 2024. Contest winners will be invited to present their work at the event, and everyone who submitted will be invited to attend. The total number of submissions accepted for the zine will depend on how many we receive, but we hope to feature as many submissions as possible (in addition to the top 3 winners in each of the two categories). Our goal with this contest is to uplift your art and stories.
