The Greek Australian Cultural League literary competition returns for 2017
Winning entries will be published in the 63rd issue of the annual bilingual periodical Antipodes
The Greek Australian Cultural League (GACL) literary competition is now an established annual event in the cultural and literary scene of the Greek community in Australia.
It includes works written in Greek or English, by writers of all ages residing in Australia, and accepts submissions in poetry, short story, and one-act theatrical play categories.
Participants may submit one entry in one or all the categories for both languages, however, the adjudication will be separate for each language.
All submissions should be the original work(s) of the authors and should not have been submitted in another competition or previously published.
Entries should be signed by a pseudonym (nom de plume) and the same pseudonym is to be used in signing all the entries submitted by the same person.
Works that do not comply with the limits of content as described in the Cultural League's website will be automatically rejected and will not be forwarded to the judging panel.
Winning entries in each category and language will be published at the launch of the 63rd issue of the annual bilingual periodical Antipodes and the results will be announced on Sunday 15 October at the Panarcadian Association O Kolokotronis.
The first prize in each category and in each language will be a commemorative certificate and a monetary prize. Second and third prizes including commendations will be a relevant award certificate and books.
Additionally, in a separate text sent to the same email address, participants are required to forward their particulars, including pseudonym, full name, address and telephone numbers as well as the number of verses in their poems and number of words in their short stories. Poem can be 100 verses (lines), short stories 2000 words, and one-act plays shouldn't exceed 15 minutes duration.
