Zondervan First Novel Contest

According to Brandilyn Collins, Zondervan announced at the Christy Awards last Saturday a fiction contest they're sponsoring for unpublished writers. Not all of the details have been announced, but here's the gist according to Brandilyn:

"There will be three rounds of judging for the contest. In the first round each author will submit a proposal for a novel. These will be judged and winnowed down. Those who make it through the first round will be asked to submit the complete manuscript. These will go through a second round of judging and be narrowed down to finalists. (Not sure how many--the guidelines will say.) The finalists will be judged by selected Zondervan authors to determine the winner. "

Zondervan's website will post full guidelines soon, and it looks like their blog will too. The winner will be published by Z in the future.

All very interesting. I wonder if they took the initiative from the Christian Writer's Guild's Operation First Novel contest?
