Who may enter
The competition is open to anyone aged 18 years or older.
The competition is run by Grist.org, an American online magazine.
Welcome to Imagine 2200 — a new climate-fiction contest by Fix, Grist’s solutions lab. What we’re seeking: short stories that envision the next 180 years of equitable climate progress.
What will our planet look like in the year 2200 — or anywhere between then and now? How will we move around the cities of the future? What will we eat, drink, wear, use, and live in? How will we hold our relationships to land, resources, and one another? What kind of a world do you, a future ancestor, want to build?
Stories must be 3,000–5,000 words, written in English.
Stories must not have been previously published.
The competition will be judged by a board of literary experts including authors Adrienne Maree Brown, Morgan Jerkins, and Kiese Laymon.
The competition is free to enter.
• 1st prize: US$3,000
• 2nd prize: US$2,000
• 3rd prize: US$1,000
• An additional nine finalists will each receive a US$300 honorarium.
