It’s that time of the year again. Aurealis entries close at the end of October. I’ve been finding YA novels and short stories that are eligible for the category I’m judging and pass them on to coordinator Ron Serdiuk to chase down, but authors and publishers need to make sure they’re on top of this too – doesn’t matter where in the world something was published, as long as it is first published between November 1 2008 and October 31 2009, is spec fic of some kind, and written by someone of Aussie affiliation! Details below, so get your entries in!
Hi everyone –
This is just a quick email to remind you that we have only just over a month to go before entries close in the Aurealis Awards 2009 process.
To be eligible for entry, works must have been written by an Australian citizen or permanent resident and first published in English between 1st November 2008 and 31st October 2009.
Go to our website for further information – www.aurealisawards.com
Or you can go straight to our online entry form – http://www.aurealisawards.com/form.php/aurealis/begin
While all works are given fair and equal consideration, it’s in your own best interests to enter – ASAP!
Our judges appreciate the time to give each work as thoughtful and considered a response as possible rather than being deluged at the last moment. And contrary to urban myth, entries received near our closing deadline will not be “fresher” in the minds of our judges and therefore, not be likely to place higher.
We encourage entries from as far and wide as possible – so please help us by spreading the word!
