Grants, Awards, and Contests: 

Be sure to READ ALL FINE PRINT when submitting to a contest or grant. There may be lengthy exclusivity clauses that would affect future publication. Make sure you know what you’re signing up for. **I do not endorse any of these contests or grants; I am simply putting these lists in one place.  I will pull a calendar together…eventually.
