THE JUDGES REQUEST 2 DAYS GRACE
It has been a frantic day of back and forth, after which, our four judges are close (but no cigar) to selecting a winner of this year’s Miami Writer’s Prize. As presumed, it has come down to an intellectual toss-up between a couple of entries perceived to be the strongest, each for different, if not myriad reasons. To manage expectations and to give the process a fair opportunity to do justice to itself, the entrants and the community at large we have decided to reset the date of announcement to Monday May 20th.
Our deepest apologies to everyone, especially our suspenseful entrants, but thanks nonetheless for the hits!
This year’s prize is being judged by a panel of preeminent web publishers – Noah Becker (WHITEHOT MAGAZINE), Hunter Braithwaite (THEREISNOTHERE), Paddy Johnson (ARTFAGCITY) and Hrag Vartanian (HYPERALLERGIC).
For more information on the Miami Writer’s Prize, please go HERE.
Following Monday’s announcement an intimate awards giving soiree in honor of the winner will be held at Locust Projects’ new space at 3852 North Miami Avenue on Thursday, May 24th, 2012. Please see below for details.
