Entries are invited for the Fourth Te Ao Hou Literary Competition. Stories must have a length of at least 1,000 words. They may be on any subject of the author's choice, although it is hoped that many of the contributions will be related to some aspect of Maori life. Persons and places may be either true or fictional.
Manuscripts should be sent to the editor of Te Ao Hou, P.O. Box 2390, Wellington, before December 31. The judges will be Mr Alistair Campbell, a Wellington poet and writer, for the English contributions, and Mr M. R. Jones for the Maori contributions.
The prizes will be ten guineas for the best story in English and ten guineas for the best story in Maori. The prize stories will then be published in this magazine. If they exceed 2,000 words, a contributors' fee will be paid for the balance. Other entries of enough merit will also be published at our usual contributors' rates.
