Welcome to the revived Alpha Centauri fiction contest!
After much time Apolyton Civilization Site is running the contest for the best AC-stories again. It doesn't matter if you are a AC fiction veteran or an aspiring new author the contest is open to everyone.
To participate you just need to nominate your story (which has to be finished) by PMing Illuminatus. In addition, due to a hiatus between the previous AC story contests this cycle will allow the submission of stories written and published within the eight months previous to the start of this contest cycle. This means that you can nominate any stories written within the 4th August of 2005 and the 22nd August of 2006. ACS Staff is not eligible for participation in this contest. After the submissions for this cycle of contest are closed a committee of three reviewers will be appointed (one of them Illuminatus) who will rate the submissions and decide upon the winners.
The new contest will run in four month cycles and will feature a 18$ US worth prize package per cycle. The participants will recieve prizes in the form of subscription to ApolytonPLUS (PLUS), ACS' optional subscription service. First three places will grant the following prizes:
1st Prize: 4 Months PLUS
2nd Prize: 2 Months PLUS
3rd Prize: 1 Months PLUS
Renewable: At Annual Review
