This award inspired by artist David Milne is due 15 July 2018
THE COLLATERAL LANDSCAPE AWARD
Canadian painter and writer David Milne’s experimentation with line, colour and texture mark him as one of the great North American painters of his generation. Of particular significance, his time spent in France and Belgium as a war artist shows a fragility of subject as scenes of death and destruction flicker into existence against stark white.
In the spirit of Milne, you’re asked to write a story about blasted landscapes, sacrificial grounds and environments tortured by man or some other hand.
- A muse in repose

A cover image is no longer a prerequisite, but we still love them. All cover images must be in 4:3 format landscape (not portrait). Most photo editing programs give you that option. If you’re using your phone, try the Snapseed app, it has lots of cool features as well. Another recommendation is Pixlr.
If including a cover image, ensure that you own the rights to that image or that you have permission, or that the image carries a free license. Make the filename of the image the name of your story and include a backlink to the source in the body text at the bottom of your story.
