I found this amazing article that lists about a gazillion upcoming short story contests. If you have ever or ever intend to write a short story, you should check out the link, because there are a heckuva lot of lucrative contests upcoming!
NOTE: As always the case when giving away your intellectual property and your money, double check and make sure the contest is legitimate before entering.
Awesome of the day:
FYI, the entire video was done in one take, so the performers basically ran around the house setting themselves up for their next appearance on camera. There was a girl whose sole job was to toss instruments to the performers. There’s a link at the end of the video to the Behind the Scenes video, if you’re interested.
