)-- Wattpad, the world’s most popular ebook community, has launched its biggest contest ever. The “Share What You Have Written” contest gives everyone a chance to win great prizes by entering their written work and having it judged by the site’s nearly 3 million monthly visitors.
Everyone has dozens, if not hundreds, of written material sitting on their computers - perhaps an essay from school, an interesting short story from vacation, poetry, a screenplay or a novel. Wattpad's mission is to untap their potential by making it easy to publish them online. Your work is just waiting to be discovered.
"Wattpad's success is driven by the quality contributions of writers," said Eva Lau, COO of Wattpad. "We want to reward writers for their tremendous contribution and at the same time encourage them to keep writing and sharing.”
To enter the contest, users simply submit original works written by them with a tag “writingcontest”. Finalists will be determined by the most number of votes received with the prize winners selected by the editors at Wattpad. The grand-prize winner will receive $1,000 in cash, two second place winners will each receive an iPod Touch.,
