Your Story Frequently Asked Questions

Has my story been received?
As long as you use the Your Story submission form or email YourStoryContest@fwmedia.com, then your story has been received. Please do not send multiple submissions as it makes judging more difficult and will not increase your chances of winning. Please do not send emails asking if your story has been received. We do not send out a confirmation. As long as you do not receive an error message, then your submission has been received. We get thousands of submission emails, and weeding through those asking if a submission was received slows down our reviewing process, and may cause delays in posting finalists.
