a note on the prizes
We are expecting to get some significant prizes to award the winners. Don't expect an around-the-world cruise on the QEII, but do expect something a bit more than a shake of the hand and a limp piece of paper... stay tuned.... Unless stated otherwise, a competition entry can be entered at any time up to the end of the Friday on which the convention starts.
The art competition will be broken down into at least three categories. If there are enough entries, subcategories will be used.
A video up to 20 minutes in length, of whichever subject you want. If it is something that you would like to watch in the movies, it will get marks. Quality, not quantity is the watchword. Marks will be given for story, editing, and the effectiveness of any effects. Don't forget, just because this is a science fiction convention doesn't mean that your video has to have special effects in it; but it should be in the genre.
A science fiction or fantasy short story of up to 5,000 words. Authors will retain all rights. To be judged by as many of the Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine team as we can muster.
Entries are to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of 22 May 2009, New Zealand Standard Time (UTC+12). Please give a subject line of "writing competition".
