Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How should I format my entry?
All essays should be submitted in English at a maximum of 1,500 words. We prefer that you send the essay in a Microsoft Word document; however, we will also consider essays that are pasted into the body of the e-mail itself.
Please double-check your submission for grammar and/or spelling mistakes.
Also make sure to include your name, email address and social media ID/handle in the body of the e-mail and on any copies or attachments of the essay itself.
Q. How do I submit my entry?
E-mail your submission to [email protected]
Each email submission will receive a message verifying that the essay was received. Additionally, please note that winners and runners-up will be notified around 20 July 2016 via email and announced at our Contest page later on.
Q. What happens if I go over the word limit?
Your essay can be excluded from consideration. And although there is no word minimum, we strongly encourage all contest participants to submit at least 800 words to maximize their chances of winning.
Q. Can I choose to remain anonymous?
Unfortunately, we cannot consider anonymous entries for this contest.
Q. My piece has been previously published. Will you consider it?
No. All entries must be original pieces of work and not be previously published.
Q. Should I send you photos that support my essay?
Please feel free to add some photos or illustrations that relate to your piece. However, make sure that pictures do not violate any copyright.
Q. Is there any advice you can give me to help stand out of the row?
Certainly. Here are a few pointers from the Edubirdie editorial team, who are in jury.
Stick to the theme of the contest. Your essay might be the brilliant one, but as long as it's away from the topic, you will not hit the score. Check your spelling. Double-duh, yeah. Still, we have to insist.
Avoid clichés. Brevity is the soul of wit, but has nothing to do with banality.
Try a less-expected subject. Look wider on the topic and find an unusual angle to cover.
