Failure to follow these guidelines will result in disqualification.


  1. Just a quick question that may seem silly: can I enter a story that I wrote for the top photo but that was accepted and published elsewhere? I would revamp the story. In short, is an already published story eligible?


    Love the new look.

    All best,
