Yes, my fellow fictioneers. Scholastic is giving out an Asian book award!
The main details can be found at their website here: http://scholasticbookaward.asia/
However, here are the short details!
Deadline: 31 December 2010
a. An official entry form, duly filled in.
b. Six copies of the manuscript (in case of a paper submission).
c. A recent photograph in soft copy on CD.
d. A short biography in not more than 100 words in soft copy on CD. In case of a translation,
the biography of both the author and the translator must be submitted.
– Winner gets $10,000 and a plaque! The manuscript might also be considered for publication by Scholastic Asia!
– First and second runner ups get a plaque and advice by Scholastic Asia on editing it for publication!
Anyway, it says you can send the submission via email but that is slightly redundant or risky considering it might get “lost” in emails since you still have to send physical copies of your photo and bio on a CD. Plus, you still have to send in the entry form too anywho. The address is available on the website.
