IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to this year's unprecedented circumstances, we were not able to host an in-person event. Instead, finalists pitched to the jury online. The jury also deliberated online to choose the winners. Join us in congratulating the winners!

I’m from a country not eligible to enter. Can I still submit?

Unfortunately we can’t consider your submission if the contest isn't available in your country as you wouldn't meet the eligibility criteria set out in the Terms and Conditions.

I'm from an eligible country but my publisher is not. Can I still submit?
