The National Space Society and Baen Books applaud the role that science fiction plays in advancing real science and have teamed up to sponsor this short fiction contest in memory of Jim Baen.

Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Award 2022 Contest Rules

Write a short story of no more than 8,000 words, that shows the near future (no more than about 50-60 years out) of manned space exploration.

  • International Publishers Association's 2022 Prix Voltaire

The Geneva-based International Publishers Association (IPA) today launches its call for nominations for the 2022 IPA Prix Voltaire for exemplary courage in upholding the Freedom to Publish and enabling others to exercise their freedom of expression.

Freedom to publish is one of the founding principles of the IPA. Its protection and promotion is one of IPA's key objectives. In many countries, publishers who provide authors with the means to disseminate their written ideas run the same risks as the writers themselves. Their work requires immense courage and a values-based, altruistic commitment. The Freedom to Publish is far from guaranteed around the world, with daily attempts by governments, extremists or private interests to intimidate, attack, imprison and even kill publishers.

The closing date for nominations is 27 March 2022

What’s the prize?

The recipient will receive 10,000 Swiss francs funded by a range of generous sponsors:
