… and so the gods have answered your prayers.
Some feedback indicated that writers needed more time than a week to roll out their 100-word limit flash pieces for this contest. Issokay, we yaff hear. Note however that at the final stage where we will have only 3 finalists tasked to produce stories, the deadline will not be as flexible.
For this stage of the contest therefore, submission deadline has been moved to midnight of FRIDAY, MAY 27, 2016.
NOTE THAT THE PICTURE PROMPT AND ALL OTHER CONTEST RULES REMAIN THE SAME.
We do not think this move will affect any writer adversely who has already submitted, because we believe you only submitted your best work. But for the sake of fairness, if you have already submitted and you feel this deadline extension will help you do better, then feel free to utilize it. Send a mail to email@example.com telling us to withdraw your first submission, then send your final submission. This only applies to writers who already sent in entries before this deadline extension post.
