The Ham-Sized Award
est un prix de Fantasy américain.
Il est doté de 300 dollars pour le meilleur écrivain et le meilleur éditeur.
Pour l'instant l'organisateur propose de nominer des ouvrages.
Voici les règles :
"Only heroic fantasy or sword-and-sorcery stories published in magazines, e-zines, literary journals, anthologies or chapbooks that have an editorial process are eligible for nomination. This means that an editor must have selected the story for publication. Only English language stories, or stories translated into English for publication, will be considered. Self-published stories are not eligible, and unpublished stories will not be considered.
The ultimate decision as to whether a story qualifies as heroic fantasy or sword-and-sorcery rests with the final judge or judges. Alas, any work written by the host of the award and author of this website is automatically removed from consideration.
Anyone may nominate a story for the award, but a story cannot be considered for the award unless it can be read by the judge or judges. Thus a copy of the story, or a link to the story, is conducive to obtaining eligibility. A list of nominated stories will be maintained on this site and periodically updated. Books and magazines sent to the judge or judges without sufficient return postage will be donated to our local library at the end of the award process.
To be eligible for nomination, a story must be longer than 500 words, and it must have been published between January 1 2009 and December 31 2009.
The final selection will be announced on this website no later than March 1, 2010. Prize money will be sent to the author of the winning story either by check or Paypal. Prize money for the winning e-zine, magazine, or book publisher will be directed to the publisher for distribution at their discretion.
The nomination period is now open. You may use the nomination page to nominate a story, or send nominations to editor (dot) fromhell (at) gmail (dot) com. Good luck."
