From the update:
Arborell.com is pleased to announce the start of the voting phase for the 2013 Windhammer Prize for Short Gamebook Fiction. Gathered for your consideration are fourteen entries, each a self-contained exploration of what
can be achieved within the gamebook genre. If you love sci-fi or fantasy, have a hankering for historical adventures, need to start a revolution, perhaps like to delve into the mysteries of photo-synthesis, or feel the itch to relive your days as a stone-cold assassin then there is something here for you.
Now in its sixth year this contest is proudly sponsored by arborell.com and continues as a means to promote the gamebook genre, and to provide exposure within a competitive environment for aspiring gamebook authors. In particular
this prize values creative and original works of gamebook fiction. The challenge given to those who wish to participate is to develop a full gamebook experience whilst meeting stringent requirements regarding length and original content. This competition is open to all gamebook writers and requires no entry fee or other costs.
It should be noted that this voting phase will continue until the 30th of October with winners being announced on the 7th of November. All intending voters should be aware that the voting rules this year have been changed and those changes can be found at the Windhammer Prize homepage.
