This award about savage Gods and family rivalry is due Sunday 4 march
THE PERSEPHONE’S HARMONY AWARD
Gods are cruel creatures and families have a flair for the dramatic. So in this contest, you’ll pit familial animosity with the fire and brimstone of imagined Gods as savage powers pit mortals against mysterious forces.
We’d like these Gods to be new archetypes. You may choose to use names and tropes from the past, but in order to qualify, you’ll have to re imagine them as gods for our time. Alternatively, you can just make up new ones as well.
- A grand battle for supremecy
- A misunderstanding where lives are at stake
- A mortal (or mortals) in mortal danger

If you’re using your phone, try the Snapseed app, it has lots of cool features as well. Another recommendation is Pixlr.
