Winners from December will be announced this evening, with a story detailing the victors within the next week.
The January, 2014 contest is more of the same from last month, almost exactly. $150 if your January story is the top traffic story of the month. No cheating, please, I check the stats. If you don’t beat me or the archives, the top story for the month still wins $75.
Plus there will be two $50 judge’s choice awards. I’m not sure I can handle judging what the “funniest” story is again. There were so many eligible stories I feel cruel not picking all of them (which is why I added a few extra prizes, in good faith.)
These Judge’s Choice awards will be based on a mix of sum author readership, author participation in comments, comments received on stories, funniest to me, and other factors-X I dare not nail down in advance.
Submit early, submit often, and don’t hesitate to submit late, since many of our winners came in the last week of December, with the top story being published the very last day of the month. All traffic through February 5th will be counted for January submissions, so winners will be announced sooner than before.
The contest for February (which is definitely happening) will look very, very different, but I have a lot of technical challenges to overcome before then. I’m working on it, rest assured.
