Mez Breeze has just posted an announcement on WebArtery which might be 
worth passing on here: "Now that the official announcement has been made 
regarding the 2014 Judging Panel, we’re broadcasting the call far and 
wide to all new media, transmedia, digital/electronic literature and 
interactive writers [and
non-genre-shoehorned practitioners] to get your entries in to the 2014 New
Media Writing Prize <http://newmediawritingprize.co.uk/>. What’s not to
like about a competition that could bag you some spiffy prize money and
oodles of kudos? And rest assured we’re not simply catering to
practitioners who have been in the field for yonks, but also have a fabbo
Student Prize – a 3 months paid internship at Unicorn Training [in
Bournemouth UK] working with Unicorn’s writing and design team."

Mez herself is one of the judges this time. I'm a bit concerned about 
the emphasis this prize places on interactivity - 'Interactivity is a 
key element of new-media storytelling' it says in their FAQs - a 
questionable statement, if you ask me - but all the same, the prize and 
shortlist have highlighted some really interesting work in the last few 
years. The deadline is 28th November.
