Feb 18 – Feb 24, 2013 Edition PARIS BOOK FESTIVAL CALL FOR ENTRIES

PARIS/02/21/2013–The 2013 Paris Book Festival has issued a call for entries to its annual event honoring the best of international publishing.

The 2013 Paris Book Festival will consider non-fiction, fiction, biography/autobiography, children's books, compilations/anthologies, young adult, how-to, e-books, cookbooks, audio/spoken word, wild card (anything goes), photography/art, poetry, unpublished, spiritual, and romance works. There is no date of publication deadline and entries can be in French or English.

Our grand prize for the 2013 Paris Book Festival is $1500 cash and a flight to Paris for our gala awards ceremony in late May.

Submitted works will be judged by a panel of industry experts using the following criteria:

1) General excellence and the author's passion for telling a good story.
2) The potential of the work to reach a wider audience.

FESTIVAL RULES: Paris Book Festival submissions cannot be returned. Each entry must contain the official entry form, including your e-mail address and contact telephone number. All shipping and handling costs must be borne by entrants.

NOTIFICATION AND DEADLINES: We will notify each entry of the package's receipt via e-mail and will announce the winning entries on our web site (www.parisbookfestival.com). Because of the anticipated high volume of entries, we can only respond to e-mail inquiries.

Deadline submissions in each category must be received by the close of business on April 25, 2013. Winners in each category will be notified by e-mail and on the web site. Please note that judges read and consider submissions on an ongoing basis, comparing early entries with later submissions at our meetings.
