Voltage Inc. has announced that it will be holding “The Third Annual Story Writing and Illustration Contest for Romance Apps”, with entries being accepted from July 1st to September 30th 2014 and the total prize amounting to around $26,000.
As stated on the English page of the contest,
“This contest is a project to search out new talent with the aim of finding and giving support to the next generation of excellent story writers and illustrators.”
Like last year, the contest is also open for international submissions. Unlike last year, however, Voltage Inc. has opened up the writing category for international submissions for their North American subsidiary, Voltage Entertainment USA Inc., thanks to the greater than expected response that they received.
Unfortunately, those entering into the writing category will not be considered for the parent branch’s Japanese games.
The contest is open to professionals and amateurs, and the deadline is midnight on September 30, 2014.
The winners and awards will be announced in December and the winners will be contacted at the e-mail address submitted with the entries. The latest information concerning the prize will be announced on the same link.
And, for those curious, you can see last year’s illustration winners here and the scenario winner’s here (Japanese only).
If you decide to enter this year’s contest, I wish you the best of luck!
