It’s Flash fiction time! Sure, pictures are said to be worth a 1,000 words- but we think you can do better than that. Choose them wisely, because this picture is worth 500 words- to you.

How to enter:
1) Read the Contest Rules
2) Create your photographically inspired piece
3) Email your entry in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
4) Follow Phlash Photo Contest on Figment.
All entries must be received by Friday, July 22nd, 2011 at midnight (Friday going into Saturday). Moderators and editors will be selecting the top semi-finalists, followed by a round of voting (by Fig Folk) to determine a winner.
1. One entry per person, please.
2. The promotion of your contest entry is not allowed on Figment. This includes self-promotion and the promotion of other users’ contest entries in the Figment forums, the comments and reviews of stories, and the Figment Facebook page. Independent promotion on sites unrelated to Figment, like personal Facebook or Twitter accounts, is fine.
3. Works must be submitted according to the instructions above between the announcement of the contest and the closure of the contest. This means a new piece must be created for the contest; adapting an old Figment piece published before the start of the contest will make the entry ineligible to win.
4. The rules of the contest are both strict and open to interpretation by a moderator.
5. The creation of multiple accounts to heart or otherwise vote for your contest entry on Figment is prohibited, and may result in the disqualification of that entry, the deletion of your Figment account, and/or the blocking of your IP address permanently from the site, at the moderator’s discretion.
