Contest: Baen Fantasy Adventure Award 2022

Deadline: April 30th, 2022
Prize: Grand Prize: Pro rate contract on story and $500 of free Baen Books, Second Prize: $500 of free Baen Books, Third Prize: $300 of free Baen Books
Theme: Adventure fantasy with heroes you want to root for. Warriors either modern or medieval, who solve problems with their wits or with their weapons—and we have nothing against dragons, elves, dwarves, castles under siege, urban fantasy, damsels in distress, or damsels who inflict distress.

Contest Rules

Write and submit a short story of no more than 8,000 words. It must be a work of fantasy, though all fantasy genres are open, e.g. epic fantasy, heroic fantasy, sword and sorcery, contemporary fantasy, etc.

No entry fee. But only one submission per person…we suggest your best one!

No reprints (i.e. the story must be unpublished).
