Metacraft announced on the 21st that it will hold the ‘2022 Creation of Heaven and Earth Web Novel Contest’ on the web novel platform ‘Nobelpia’.
This contest was prepared to revitalize the domestic web novel market and to inspire the imagination of domestic writers. The total prize money is 200 million won, the largest ever, and you can submit web novels of all genres, including adult works, as well as free serials from other companies. The submission period for works is from April 1 to May 20, and more than 30 winning works will be selected.
Metacraft said, “This contest is a festival held by Novelpia as a token of appreciation to writers and readers. That’s what we want to make,” he explained.
The winning works of the contest will be supported and reviewed so that they can be expanded to various elements of multi-use projects such as webtoons, games, and videos.
