Hayakawa Shobo has announced that they will hold the first "Hayakawa SF Contest" in which writers may submit their works of science fiction in hopes of being selected for the grand prize of publication in Japanese, Chinese, and English, as well as Hayakawa Shobo's cooperation in securing various media adaptations for the title. The judges for the contest include Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, critic and author Hiroki Azuma (Otaku: Japan's Database Animals), and author Chohei Kanbayashi (Yukikaze).
Submissions must be previously-unpublished works written in Japanese by the individual submitting the work, and entries must be 100 to 800 pages of 400 characters in length. In addition to the prize of publication as an individual volume in Japanese and e-book editions in English and Chinese, grand prize winners will also receive a medal and one million yen (about US$12,735). Submissions will be accepted until the end of next March, and prize selections will be announced in September of 2013.
