Description Contest is hosting a writing contest with $7,500 of prizes available across 4 fiction categories: Short-story, novelette, novella and novel. We know there are a lot of contests out there, so we want to be transparent and make sure you understand your rights, how your work is judged and what winning involves.

More Details is a platform that will connect your writing to highly targeted beta readers for ratings, engagement analytics, and valuable feedback. Their judging process works the same way. Rather than using a small team of editors to decide, They’ll match your work with a subset of readers on our mobile reading app. Each reader will see the title and description of a few dozen contest entries and can choose one of these entries to begin reading.
