To enter an Inkitt contest you must first upload your story onto the Inkitt platform either using the Inkitt Writing App or Inkitt.com. Once your story has been uploaded and successfully submitted, you can only designate your story to be entered into the contest page on Inkitt.com under settings in your story editor page. The story editor page, settings option, and contest entry page are shown below:
Selecting Contest Winners
All contest winners are automatically selected by our Inkitt algorithm. This is a combination of 1200 different reading behaviors, likes, reviews, comments and shares on your book. The stories that are selected by our algorithm to be the winners will then be notified directly via email by a member of our marketing team. Due to the amount of submissions received, we will only contact you if you finished in the top 3.
Each contest offers writers the chance to win various prizes that help them grow in their writing careers. These prizes range from cash, one-on-one marketing coaching, as well as publishing deals depending on the contest running at the time. To find the specific prizes offered in that contest, please go directly to the contest page and read through the terms and conditions found on the left hand side of the page, as shown in the image below:
Publishing Opportunities for Contest Winners?
For very select and specific contests, prizes may include the opportunity to have your story published by Inkitt. Unless explicitly stated in the terms and prize offerings, contest winners will not be offered a publishing contract.
