  1. A question came into my email: Can writers submit their picture book manuscripts without pictures? Absolutely! If anyone else has questions, please post to the blog. The questions and the answers may be useful to all readers and potential contestants.

  2. Joni Klein-Higger says:

    Can we submit more than one picture book to the contest?

  3. Shari Maser says:

    Do we need to have a blog, a Twitter account, AND a Facebook account in order to enter?


    • Shari, all I ask is that you promote the contest through one of the following – a blog (if you have one), Twitter, or Facebook. The deadline to enter is September 1. I hope you decide to enter – I think it’s a great opportunity for picture book writers! Barbara

  5. I have two questions, Barbara.
    Firstly, how does one show proof that she has posted the info on Facebook?
    Does the writer retain rights?

    Thanks so much.

    • Hi, Justine. You can copy and paste your Facebook message into an email to me. Yes, the author retains rights, and I should also mention that all submissions will be sent without author names to the judge. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
