Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

I just heard about this today. And I'm going to do it. Two weeks and counting.

Announcing the 2011 Breakthrough Novel Award

We'll start accepting General Fiction and Young Adult Fiction entries on January 24. Learn how to enter.

The 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, along with Penguin Group (USA) and CreateSpace, is pleased to announce the fourth annual Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, the international competition seeking the next popular novel. The competition will once again award two grand prizes: one for General Fiction and one for Young Adult Fiction. Each winner will receive a publishing contract with Penguin, which includes a $15,000 advance.
The Breakthrough Novel Award brings together talented writers, reviewers, and publishing experts to find and develop new voices in fiction. If you're an author with an unpublished or previously self-published novel waiting to be discovered, visit CreateSpace to sign up for regular contest updates. Open submissions for manuscripts will begin on January 24, 2011 and run through February 6, 2011.
See the official contest rules for more information on how to enter.
