London, UK (PRWEB) June 05, 2011
Crowdpublishing site ViewsHound has announced the launch of a weekly Best Newcomer prize of $50, as a way of welcoming new authors, after gaining over 5,000 Facebook fans in just a month. The Best Newcomer prize will be awarded every Monday to an author who has had their first work published on ViewsHound during the previous seven days and has not already won a prize.
The judging criteria are the same as those used for the ViewsHound daily cash prizes, which consider the quality of the article and the number of page views the article has received, among other factors.
ViewsHound’s Editor in Chief, Ian Howlett, said, “We always welcome new authors into the ViewsHound community, and want to recognise their contributions by awarding a special cash prize for Best Newcomer. Our existing contributors are finding ViewsHound a great place to get a wide audience for their articles, and we want as many people as possible to experience the audience that ViewsHound can bring.”
Anyone is welcome to submit articles, photographs and cartoons to ViewsHound, and a daily cash prize fund of $120 is on offer. To do so, go to http://www.viewshound.com and click the blue button “Sign in with Facebook” at the top right of the page.
