Book Trailer Contest for Writers and Small orIndependent Presses
Congratulations to the winning entrants in Quiddity’s book trailer competition. The contest has no fee and awards two prizes of $500 as well as broadcast, Web, and print promotion by Quiddity—one prize each in the categories Manuscripts (for writers with unpublished, completed manuscripts) and Books (for small or independent presses promoting their titles and authors).
First-place winners and honorable mentions from Quiddity’s most recent competition are featured below. The variety of the entries made them a delight to behold, and we were grateful for the opportunity to host the contest in support of both writers promoting their manuscripts in the marketplace as well as those champions of literary production: small and independent presses.
Manuscripts Category (awards for a book trailer video submitted by a writer who has a book-length work of prose that has not yet found its home with a publisher)
First Place: Stace Budzko’s “How to Set a House on Fire” (Short Story Collection)
(awards for a book trailer video submitted by a small or independent press promoting a recent title and author)
First Place: Doug Harris’s You Comma Idiot (Goose Lane Editions)
