Have you written an inspiring story about someone who has overcome major obstacles? The New York-based Epoch Times newspaper is offering $10,000 US in prize money for news reporting that highlights compassion, redemption, and triumph in the face of adversity.

Submissions should be between 500 and 1,000 words and have the potential to reach a large audience on social media. Editors will judge entries and select for publication in The Epoch Times based on the following criteria:

  • Original topic
  • Grasp of contest theme
  • Engaging storytelling
  • Clean, publish-ready copy

Readers will also have a chance to choose their favourites from among the editors’ choices.

The Epoch Times will publish the top three selections. Prizes range from $5000 for the Grand Prize winner to $200 for Honourable Mention.

You can submit any time before September 18, 2017, but early submissions may have a greater chance of winning.
