Long List: Designed Life Literary Awards

The List is finally here, the entries are set.

On the 30th of May 2017, we would announce 3 Award winners and a shortlist of entries for the CFW EMagazine June Edition. Each entry will be published on design.life website and it would reflect on the facebook page of Designed Life.

To Win, awardees should find their story or poem on the facebook page and tag their friends to share and drop a positive review as a comment. The highest number of shares,  positive reviews and scores from the judges would win. The reviews should be comments that actually show that the story or poem was read, one-word comments like “great, awesome” will not be valid.

Writers should remember to ask their friends to like the post and the page before sharing and commenting, this is the only way to validate the number of shares. It proves that the writer did not just share his own posts, we will also be monitoring the shares and any writer who shares their own post automatically gets disqualified.
