Hello BSFS,

We're a UK award giving out £2500 each year for speculative fiction that is progressive, intelligent, and entertaining.

There's no fee to submit to The Kitschies, and the winner of each award gets a hand-crafted cuddly tentacle and either £1,000 or £500 (about $1500/$750) as a cash prize.

We accept independent publishers, ebook submissions and self-published works. We like to find diverse fiction from a range of backgrounds.

There are prizes for cover art, debut, and novel, as well as "digitally native fiction" i.e. something that's interactive, online, and not just an ebook.

Past winners include Andrew Smith, Nick Harkaway, Karen Lord, Kameron Hurley, and Ruth Ozeki.

If you'd like to submit drop us a line on submissions@thekitschies.com or have a look at www.thekitschies.com

We hope to read some great books!
