The second pixelhose.com writing competition is now officially closed to new submissions. On behalf of everyone here, I want to thank every author for your participation.
As you can easily see from our format, pixelhose is an entirely new approach to writing contests. So it should not be a surprise that what happens next is also different from other competitions. Here is what you should expect:
a) We will continue to post qualified entries on pixelhose.com until all of them have appeared on the site for at least a week. Given the submission volume, and our current rate of rejection, we expect this to complete before Fall of 2013.
b) We expect to release our short list of winning candidates thirty days after all qualified entries have been posted. There will be a list for each category. We will then allow two weeks so people can (re)read the candidate pieces and comment.
c) Winners will be announced in the Fall of 2013.
Note that the dates are approximate as of this writing. We will of course keep everyone posted about our progress. Please don’t hesitate to comment on this post, or email us, if you have any questions – now, or at any time.
Wishing each and every one of you success in your writing career,
