From Overland‘s website:

The Overland Victoria University Short Story Prize for New and Emerging Writers is now open.

This annual competition encourages excellent and original short fiction by new writers of up to 3000 words in length. At a grand first prize of $6000, it is a coveted annual fiction award for new writers in Australia. There are also two runner-up prizes of $1000. All three winners will be published in Overland’s final print issue of 2015.

For the purposes of this competition, ‘new or emerging’ describes a writer who has no more than one book (with commercial distribution) published.

This year, the competition will be judged by writer Nam Le, writer and academic Natalie Kon-yu and Overland‘s Jacinda Woodhead.

Competition closes 11.59 pm, Sunday 30 August 2015.
