Thank to generous donations, the 2011 storySouth Million Writers Award now has over $500 in total prize money, along with a $100 gift certificate from the great people at ThinkGeek. At the moment, this means the prize money for the award breaks down as
- First place: $350 plus the $100 ThinkGeek gift certificate
- Runner-up: $150
If we receive additional donations, I will raise those prize amounts and create a third place prize, which would be similar to what we've offered the last few years. So if you can donate a few dollars, please consider doing so.
I should also note that nominations from editors and readers are rolling in. Don't forget the deadline to nominate stories is March 15.
