Earth Vision writing contest

AN exciting writing competition for those who love nature and the world around us is now open and accepting entries.

The Earth Vision Nature Writing Contest is held to support the cause of writing on the subject of nature and deep ecology; and all outstanding proceeds are used to support the Earth Vision projects.

The competition is open to any writer in English producing an original short piece of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetic prose, or poetry on a theme of nature, deep ecology, spiritual ecology, or any work that has some element of nature woven into it.

And in 2009, the first place title went to Lewis resident Ann Palmer for her work ‘The Declaration of Interdependence’.

Submissions for the 2011 EV nature writing contest can be published or unpublished material and length can range between 500 and 2,500 words per entry, although poetry can be smaller.

You can enter as many times as you like, although it is only one title per entry and a new entry fee must accompany each entry. The deadline for receipt of entries is October 15 this year.

First prize in the competition is $500, second and third $100, and winners will retain all rights and will be invited to post their entries on the Earth Vision website.
