7th Annual JGGFA Contest

It’s my great pleasure to announce this year’s JGGFA contest.  Please spread the word!

The 7th Annual Jeannie Gray Golden Friendship Award

What is this award?

It is the intention of the members of the GH99er loop that this award ~

$100 and a beautiful certificate

~ be used by an unpublished writer who has entered the current
Golden Heart® Contest, sponsored by Romance Writers of America,
to offset the costs of entry into that contest. 
However, this award is in no way affiliated with RWA or any of its contests.  

One recipient for the 2010 Jeannie Gray Golden Friendship Award will be chosen by the members of the GH99er loop based on the essays submitted.
Essay topics vary every year.

 Note: Entrants must have entered the 2010 Golden Heart® contest and provide proof of entry to the JGGFA coordinator in order to be eligible for this award.

 How do I enter?

To be considered for this year’s award please submit a 250-300 word essay on the following topic along with proof of entry in the Golden Heart® 2010 Contest:

What novel inspired you to become a writer and why?

Opening date for submission of essay: Monday, January 25th, 2010.
Deadline for submission of essay: Midnight EST, February 20th, 2010.

Submit your essay in the body of an email.
Proof of entry into the GH may be sent in a separate email. 
Send entry to: JGessay99@aol.com
Emails with attachments will be deleted without opening.
Confirmation of receipt will be by return email.

The 2010 award recipient will be notified by email on or before February 28th, 2009. A mailing address must be provided to the award coordinator at that time in order to receive the award. In applying for this award you agree that all decisions made by the members of the Jeannie Gray Golden Friendship Award group are final.
