2018 will be bringing in the classic competition element of the first years of the anthology. Don't worry, all submissions will be published. However, the top 3 submissions will receive discounts and prizes too!
The best short story, poem, or illustration will receive free registration (paid-back on the first day of camp).
Second place will receive 50% back on the registration price paid, and third place will receive 25% back.
All submissions are included in one judging category; short stories, poems, and artwork will not be judged in separate categories.
Due to a lack of submissions, the anthology contest and print publication has been cancelled this year.
However, a digital copy may be put together with the works created during the camp weekend, to be released after camp.
