    Contest Finalists - Closed Voting

    Discussion in '2013 Science Fiction Writing Contest' started by Daniel, Feb 20, 2014.

    The Finalists for the 2nd Annual Science Fiction Short Story Contest:
    Public Voting

    We now move on stage two of selection. For the next three weeks we'll run a public poll. The top five entries are anonymous, please keep it that way. The winners will win the prizes as outlined in the original announcement.

    Voting Guidelines/Rules:
    • Please read all entries before voting
    • Voting for yourself is allowed
    • One vote per person. Any attempt to game the system, cheat, or solicit votes will result in disqualification and a ban.
    • We are still anonymous; don't announce you're a finalist.
    • Voting will be extended if we are shy of 12 votes at the deadline (I don't anticipate this).
    • To vote you must not be a new member and must have registered before this announcement.
    There were some great entries. Thank you all for participating. Reading some of these made me want to get back into writing fiction again. The first round of judging was from a handful of people I know who are not writers and do not participate on this forum. As readers, I feel like they are more representative of potential audiences and thus good judges.

    I apologize for the numerous delays in announcing the finalists. We came across a few issues with the judging. I promise our next contest will run more smoothly.

    Thank you all for your patience and for entering the contest. Please read all five entries and vote for the entrant you think deserves 1st place. Good luck!

    (I'll edit this announcement with any updates or if I left something out!)
