Voting for the Readers' Choice Award

My friends, the "Silent Grey" Short Fiction Contest is now closed. Thank you for another great turn-out with excellent writing!


But the fun is not over!

Voting for the Readers' Choice Award is now open!!

This portion of the contest is open to all people who submitted an entry. Here are the rules:

  1. Contest participants are invited to vote on their top 5 favorite entries by emailing me their votes to jevanswriter at yahoo dot com.
  2. Please vote by entry number and list your votes from 1 to 5 with 1 being your top vote.
  3. I will award 5 points for your 1st vote, 4 points for your 2nd vote, 3 points for your 3rd, 2 points for your 4th, and 1 point for your 5th.
  4. You may not vote for your own entry. Please specify your entry number at the beginning of the email.
  5. At the close of Readers' Choice Award voting, I will tally the points. The winner will be the entry with the most points.
  6. I guarantee at least one Readers' Choice Award; however, depending upon the results of the contest, I reserve the right to award additional Readers' Choice Awards in the order of their rank. Additional awards, if given, may be with or without a prize.

Keep your favorites in mind. Enjoy your own judging, and above all, have fun!

Cast your votes before 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time (U.S.), Friday, January 12, 2007.

Lastly, in the tradition of contests at The Clarity of Night, tomorrow I will share with you my own vision of the "Silent Grey" photo. Have a good night!

Angela, Happy New Year! Thanks for stopping by. We'll be back to normal content next week.

Nothingman, they're a blast, aren't they? I did three last year. I'm sure I'll be up for another one in couple months.

I'm really impressed by your contests. Sorry I sent mine in late; won't happen next time.

The stories got really strong near the end of the alphabet. I'm glad I kept reading. Nice work all. I could pick a top two or three, but after that there were about ten tied for third.
