Anyone can enter, everyone can vote.

The rules are simple: submit your best work in 350 words or less. We accept entries in either English or Bahasa Indonesia.

Entries are posted here on this website, and the audience votes. At the end of the contest, the 12 entries with the most votes win the popular choice, and go into a zine to be circulated during Festival dates. It’s that simple.

Then a team consisting of flash fiction experts and Festival repesentatives will determine 2 winning entries from the top 12 – one in Indonesian, one in English. These winners will receive a 4 day pass to the 2010 Festival, and will be invited to join the panel of judges for the 2011 Flash Fiction Challenge.

The contest opens 17 August and runs until 24 September. Winners will be announced on 1 October — just in time for the Festival!
