I visited some of the most incredible places, such as the palaces and huge courtyard in Esfahan, the teeming Tehran markets and best of all, Persepolis, former capital of the Persian empire until Alexander the Great sacked it in the 32os BC.

We do everything in our power to ensure a fair process. The first round of judging is done in teams of two judges, who are intentionally paired to represent different backgrounds and geographic areas. They choose the stories individually and do not consult each other. Judges recuse themselves from any stories they recognize or that they suspect is the work of a writer they know. If you know one of the judges, you can mention that in the email and we will make sure your work is not sent to that judge.
In the second round, all of the judges read all of the semifinalist entries and again choose stories without consulting each other. The top prizewinners are chosen by a consensus of all six judges, making it nearly impossible for one judge to unfairly influence the outcome. Any entrant who attempts to interfere with the judging process will be disqualified. We take fairness very seriously. Rehoboth Beach Reads on Facebook. Wholesale Catalog.
