The Binnacle Ultra-Short Competition
http://www.umm.maine.edu/binnacle/short.asp 2004-05 Competition
The Binnacle will sponsor its second international Ultra-Short competition
in the 2004-2005 academic year. We are looking for poetry of sixteen lines
or less and prose works of 150 words or less. This year we are also
including a separate category for digital imagery. Imagery can include
photography (color or b&w), line drawing, or other original digital imagery.
As the contest will be printed in a small format, images that present well
in a small space are encouraged. Digital images should be submitted via
postal mail on a CD or posted on a web site for our viewing. Please do not
send these in attachments. Please include SASE if you would like the media
returned. All submissions should be made via email to [email protected].
Three cash prizes will be awarded in the amounts of $150, $100, and $50*. At
least one of the prizes will go to a UMM student. Please submit no more than
two works total, prose and/or poetry. There is no submission fee. Deadline
for submission will be February 15, 2005. (Some notices may say February 1,
but February 15 will be the deadline.) Notifications will be made by May 15,
2005. Publication date will be May, 2005, but printing may not be completed
until October, 2005. Awards will be made at the time of publication. *In the
event of a tie, we will re-distibute the prize money as deemed appropriate.
$300 represents the minimal amount of prize money to be awarded.
