What's Different About Our Premium Contests?
First, we limit the number of entries in each contest. Your story will be competing against a maximum of 99 others for the top 3 prizes. Most contests accept all who enter, sometimes putting your story up against tens of thousands of others for a chance at the prizes.
Second, you get real feedback. We are a site that is here to help authors improve, and we think that if you pay for something you should get something in return. That is why, when the judging is done, we will send you specific suggestions to improve your story and AuthorStand Judges' Scores across these five categories:
• Proofing & Editing
• Writing Technique
• Plot Development
• Character Development
How are Winners Chosen?
Winners in our premium contests are chosen by the AuthorStand Judges. During the contest the stories will be listed on our site and may receive ratings or reviews, however these do not have any influence on the final outcome of the contest. All winners chosen by the judges are final. When you win, the prize will be sent to the payout address listed in your account within 14 days of the winners being announced.
