Quarter 3 Writers and Illustrators of the Future Vol. 37
How many contestants are there approximately? Probably every new person asks this ever. It's my first time submitting something. Got silver honorable
Congratulations on your Silver!!!
Congrats! Nice first-time showing.
The # isn't revealed. It's said they don't want to intimidate those who may think the odds would be against them. Then follow that up with "thousands", which may be considered intimidating to some.
My view is the odds of getting an HM are the same if there are 50 entries vs 5000 entries. That's what's so great about the contest. Write and submit a great story and hope for the best. Blind judging means we are all equal.
Finalist held over for possible inclusion.
