Tim Napper Wins the International L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest 1st Quarter
Tim Napper of Australia, currently living in Hanoi, Vietnam, will be honored at the 31st annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held in April 2015 in Los Angeles at the Wilshire Ebell Theater. The event will celebrate the annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Tim was the 1st quarter, first place winner for this year, making it further than some several thousand others, and where his winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series - L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXXI. As Tim is a 1st place winner, he will now compete with the other 1st place winners (four in all) for the grand prize of $5,000.00.
The story was Napper's 4th entry to the contest over a 2 year period. All contestants are encouraged to enter every quarter if they can and Napper followed that advice.
Alongside Tim will be eleven other winners from all walks of life, flown in from all corners of the globe. They will be treated to a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges including Tim Powers (On Stranger Tides), followed by the gala awards ceremony.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth, and to date the contest has launched the careers of 12 New York Times bestselling authors.
