Terms and Conditions of Entry

This competition is being conducted by Griffith University (as represented by Griffith Review), a body corporate established pursuant to the Griffith University Act 1988 (ABN 78 106 094 461).




1. Who may enter?
All persons, other than immediate family members of Griffith Review, may enter the competition.
Each person may only make one submission to the competition, so please submit your best work.
All entrants must be citizens or residents of either Australia or New Zealand.
Griffith Review reserves the right to invite submissions.




2. Conditions of entry
By entering the competition, participants agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions of Entry.
We require original works of fiction that fall between the length of a typical short story and novel. While there is no firm word length requirement, writers are advised that works between 10,000 and 25,000 words are preferable; 35,000 words is the maximum.
The Novella submission must be your original work. If you are not the sole author of the Novella submission, you must secure the necessary permission from the appropriate third parties to legally entitle you to comply with these Terms and Conditions of Entry.
Unless you have prior written consent from Griffith Review, previously published work or simultaneous submissions will be excluded from consideration. Griffith Review, acting in its sole discretion, may grant an exception to this requirement in exceptional circumstances. Works written as part of a higher degree program in creative writing are eligible for entry if such consideration is within the rules of the academic institution. Students enrolled at, or graduates of, Griffith University are eligible to enter.

3. How to enter the competition
A Novella (in Microsoft Word format), along with a short bio and the entry fee, must be submitted no later than 13 May 2016.
Early submissions are encouraged.
Successful applicants will be notified by email by 30 June 2016.
Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by 8 July 2016.
Unless you have been contacted by Griffith Review and personally invited to make a Novella submission, you will be charged an entry fee of AUD$50 (or $35 if you hold a current print or digital subscription to Griffith Review) upon entry to this competition. The entry fee will be used to cover the administrative costs of conducting this competition. All payments must be made by credit card via GriffithPay.
Following payment, each entrant will receive a FREE one-year digital subscription to Griffith Review. To take advantage of this offer, go to the Subscriptions page. Choose which format you want your one-year digital subscription in (PDF / epub / mobi) and click Subscribe. On the top of the next page enter the promo code NOVELLAIV.
To avoid any doubt, failure to pay the entry fee will preclude you from this competition, and your Novella submission will not be read by the judges.
Novella submissions must adhere to the following formatting:

Use 12pt Times New Roman font, 1.5 space
Margins should be no less than 2.5cm at top and bottom and 3.25cm at left and right
Please paginate your story at the bottom of the page.
As the judging will be conducted ‘blind’ your name and other personal details should only appear on the Entry Form, not on the pages of the novella
Each page of the novella should include a header with the name of the work.

4. Selection of winners
Griffith Review will appoint a panel of judges to decide upon the winners. Those judges will select the winners based upon originality, creativity and quality of the Novella submission. It is anticipated that four Novellas will be selected as winners of the competition, but the judges reserve the right to vary the number selected based on the quality of submissions.
The judges’ decisions will be final and no correspondence will be entered into with unsuccessful applicants. All unsuccessful applicants will be notified by 8 July 2016. Discussion of possible future publication will be discussed on a case-by-case basis with unsuccessful applicants at the discretion of the editor.
For the avoidance of any doubt, chance/luck plays no part in determining the winners.

5. Notification of winners
The winning authors will be announced on 11 July 2015. All winners will be contacted privately prior to the public announcement of the winners. Winning authors will agree to co-operate in a timely fashion with the editorial processes and reasonable publicity requests of Griffith Review.

The winning authors will share the prize pool of $25,000. Further, the collected pieces will be published in a special edition of Griffith Review on 26 October 2016, and individually distributed online, as eSingles, for a period of three months.
This edition of Griffith Review will be distributed to subscribers and to bookshops and e-book retailers under the contract between Griffith Review and Text Publishing Company (TPC). TPC will also handle the online distribution of eSingles. The edition and individual eSingles will also be offered for sale from the Griffith REVIEW online store.

7. Intellectual property rights in Novella submissions

a) an exclusive and unrestricted licence to publish and distribute the Novella (including online), for a period of three months (the Exclusivity Period);

b) commencing after the Exclusivity Period a perpetual and unrestricted licence to publish and distribute the Novella (including online);

c) a perpetual licence to reproduce the Novella on the Griffith REVIEW website;
