News, Plans & Developments

In this section, you can keep an eye on what we're up to, in terms of developing the competition.

Planned Features

Here are some of the features of the on-line entry system we're developing.

  • Competitor accounts: You'll be able to create an account and sign in. This will help you to keep track of your stories and their status. It will also help us to keep in touch with you, if you win!
  • On-line entry form: No more e-mail attachments. You'll be able to enter or paste your stories directly into the system, which will automatically put your entry into the current round, or the next one if payment is delayed or the 100 entry limit is reached in the mean time.
  • Live status updates: Every time a new entry is accepted, the system will automatically update the status page, so you'll get up-to-the-minute information about how the competition is progressing.
