Draft Magazine, one of the leading beer magazines is hosting an essay contest that, to me, seems like a pretty cool idea. In 900 words or less can you tell the story of a beer that changed your life? Visit Draft for full details, including complete contest rules.
Has a single pint changed your life? Did one bottle rock your world? Share your story in DRAFT’s first annual BeerMe Essay Contest! The winner will see their essay published in DRAFT, and receive a $100 Visa gift card. To enter, send your essay describing how one beer changed your life to firstname.lastname@example.org between Jan. 26, 2011 and Mar. 31, 2011. See below for guidelines and complete contest rules.
Essays should be typed and double-spaced (preferably in a Microsoft Word document) and should total 900 words or less. Entries exceeding 900 words will not be considered. Entries must include the author’s name, address, phone number and email address within the entry email and on the essay attachment. DRAFT will not consider anonymous entries, or works that have been previously published. Entries will not be returned.
Entries must be submitted via email to email@example.com with the subject line “2011 ESSAY CONTEST.” Your email submission will receive a return message verifying that your entry was received. Do not attach photos or supporting materials; judging will be based on creativity, language and use of theme only.
The contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, age 21 or older at the time of entry.
