Albedo One, the Irish magazine of speculative fiction has launched its yearly Aeon award. The award is geared towards new writers in any speculative category – sci-fi, horror, fantasy etc…
The prize is a whopping €1000! Which, these days, is practically the same as £1000. Of course the award also brings publication in Albedo One and excellent exposure for a new writer (such as myself); 2nd and 3rd place brings publication and €200 and €100 respectively. All for a meagre entry fee of €7.
It’s one of the biggest prizes I’ve come across for a speculative fiction competition, and I’ll definitely submit something for it. Submissions are open until 30th Nov 2009.
