All awards and prizes are awarded by public vote. Category winners will be presented with their prizes in September, 2020. Paid Submissions cost $10 + gst + booking fee.*Paid submissions can be: new or exisiting work; that has been previously released or is currently unreleased (including work that is premiering). Paid submissions must have been created after October 1, 2018. *Acceptance and Lock Down submissions must be previously unreleased, new work.
That’s right, we have five, $1000 cash prizes to award to the best story in each category. You can enter once or multiple times.
Free Submissions will be published live on our platform upon submission. Free Submissions can be: new or exisiting work; that has been previously released or is currently unreleased. Free Submissions can have been created at anytime. This is a great option if you have older exisiting stories you would like to make freely available to a public audience.
*Please do not submit work that is offensive. Submissions of this nature will be delete and the content creator banned from submitting further content, in-perpetuity.
Our five categories are Visual, Sound, Text, Lock Down and Acceptance. The last two categories ask storytellers to create New Work based on the category name, Lock Down or Acceptance. One of the best ways to cope in times of change is to be creative and express your feelings. Some of the best creative works happen when restrictions are forced upon us, and we encourage all Tasmanian Storytellers, young and old, emerging and experienced to get busy creating.
