“The 2013 Elisa Rolle Rainbow Awards are an annual contest celebrating outstanding work in LGBT fiction and nonfiction. Hosted and owned by blogger Elisa Rolle, the contest is open to all authors of work containing LGBT fictional characters and work chronicling the true stories of LGBT persons.” —the awards website
As both a past winner and judge, as well as a judge for this year’s awards, I can tell you that Elisa runs a very professional contest for writers of LGBT fiction. If you are an author, please consider submitting your book(s). After admin expenses, all remaining funds collected from the award entries will be donated to select LGBT non-profit charitable organizations.
