Ray Bradbury Creative Writing Contest

Deadline: March 20, 2009

Fee: None that I could find.

Genre: Short Stories/Nonfiction

Details: Since the inception of television our society has become increasingly more reliant on it with each generation. In his prescient novel, Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury anticipated this trend in which reality programming impacts our daily lives. Respond to this theme of social sedation/apathy brought on by the evolution of television by entering the newly revised 25th Annual Ray Bradbury Contest. Categories include responses through writing, visual arts or multimedia.

Prize: $200 in each category for Waukegan residents and $100 for non-residents.
