XPRIZE Seat 14C Fiction Contest
Deadline August 25 (must be received by this date). Neutral free contest awards a prize package worth $10,000 including a trip for two to Tokyo, for unpublished speculative fiction, 2,000-4,000, based on a writing prompt on the XPRIZE Foundation website. XPRIZE is a nonprofit that hosts competitions to harness technology to solve global problems. "Seat 14C is an online science fiction anthology that offers a glimpse into a techno-optimistic future. Many of the world's leading sci-fi authors have contributed an original short story told from the perspective of one of the passengers on a flight that mysteriously lands in San Francisco, 20 years in the future, and they need your help. One seat, 14C, is 'reserved' for the public to submit their own narrative." See website for the complete prompt and other restrictions.
