It seems like such a short time ago that we were talking about the first Zombie Survival Crew Anthology: Undead Is Not An Option (and if you haven’t read it you should… it’s awesome), but it has been a year since we put out the call to our talented crew, asking them to share those talents with us. So, we thought we’d do it again… and another contest is coming up. What is the contest? It is three-fold.
- A writing contest for short stories, poetry, and articles to include in our second Zombie Survival Crew Anthology.
- An artwork contest (high quality black & white only) for inclusion in the anthology
- A cover design contest to design the hottest cover for the Anthology.
All entries will be reviewed by the brigade commanders and first round acceptance determinations will be made and communicated in our Members only area. All entries which have made it into the second round will have the opportunity to make revisions based on feedback from the judges for resubmission. The final determinations for inclusion in the anthology will be conducted at that time.
The prize is inclusion in the anthology and we request both first print and first e-rights for the work to be exclusive for a period of 90 days, but non-exclusive thereafter. The work will remain in print and ebook format for as long as the anthology is being made available to the public, but after 90 days, the work may be in print in other publications or displayed online or in ebook form.
There is no cash prize for this contest and all proceeds for the anthology’s sale will go to the Zombie Survival Crew.
Since you must be a member to participate in the contest, please ensure you have registered on this site as all entries will be validated against Zombie Survival Crew membership.
So keep a close watch on this site as we will release the final details and dates on how YOU can contribute. In the meantime, start dreaming up stories, break out the pencils and brushes, and get those creative juices flowing. — I can’t wait to see what you come up with this year. Last year the entries left our commander-in-chief sleepless from the spine-chilling tales submitted. Let’s see if we can do it again!!
