$20,000 FOR 100 WORD STORY

The César Egido Serrano Foundation and the Spanish ‘Museum of Words’ have opened their ‘microfiction’ competition, closing date November 23rd 2014.  Write  a 100 word story you could win a prize of $20,000 – and second prize is $2,000.
Open to international writers, entries can be submitted in English, Spanish, Arabic or Hebrew.
Entries must be sent exclusively by filling in the entry form that can be found on the website www.museodelapalabra.com.
All stories entered must be original, unpublished in all means (paper, electronic publications, network…) and have not been awarded in any other contest. Check out the website for the full details.
As one of the objectives of the organising César Egido Serrano Foundation is the value of the word and dialogue as a tool for uniting peoples, so the slogan of this contest is Mandela: Words and Concord. However the rules state that your story can be on any subject.
A first prize of $20,000 will be awarded to the winning story. The three remaining finalist stories in the remaining language categories will receive a $2000 runner up prize each.
