Welcome to Eyelands Book Awards, an international competition for both published and unpublished books, organized by Eyelands Literary Magazine in collaboration with Strange Days Publications. We have been organizing fiction competitions for the past 8 years with increasing success, giving the opportunity to writers from all over the world to see their work published in print and online, to share their work with fellow writers and even to enjoy a holiday in Greece. Over the years, our competitions have been recognized as truly reliable, fair and serious. Many reputable websites support us and feature our contests, which have earned their reputation year after year, by honoring all their promises, following the rules meticulously and meeting all criteria that allow a contest to gain respect and recognition on an international level.
This year we decided to launch a new contest, Eyelands Book Awards, an international contest that gives the opportunity to a writer to win a holiday in Athens, Greece, where he/she will have the chance to talk about his/her work to Greek readers and meet Greek writers in a special ceremony. This is the grand prize for writers who have already published their book. But there’s more. Eyelands Book Awards also gives the opportunity to an unpublished writer to win a contract and see her/his book published from Strange Days Books. There are also prizes for the winners of the three different categories, as well as nominations of five writers per category. Join us. Send us your submission and win the grand prize, visit Athens or see your book published!
