Announcing the 2010 Mythicist Prize

The Mythicists’ Forum, a consortium of New Testament scholars, together with American Atheists, Inc., are pleased to announce the 2010 Mythicist Prize.

THE PRIZE:
The sum of $1,000 (U.S.) will be awarded to the author of a submitted essay which, in the opinion of the judges, sheds light on the origins of Christianity and, at the same time, supports the proposition that Jesus of Nazareth did not exist.

ELIGIBILITY:
Anyone is eligible to submit an essay. The prizewinning contribution will be published in 2010, along with submissions of distinction which merit an Honorable Mention. The publisher will be announced at the time of the award.

SUBMISSION:
Contestants are limited to one essay each. Three copies of the work should be mailed in one package to:
2010 Mythicist Prize 1313 Lincoln St. # 503 Eugene, OR 97401 U.S.A.
DEADLINES FOR RECEIPT OF SUBMISSIONS:
From the U.S.A.: Dec. 1, 2009.
From other countries: Dec. 15, 2009.

LANGUAGE OF SUBMISSION:
Essays must be written in one of the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish.

JUDGES:
René Salm, Robert M. Price, Frank R. Zindler, Earl Doherty.
The decision of the judges is final. The prizewinner will be announced at the 2010 American Atheist National Convention. Note: If no submission is deemed worthy of receiving the Mythicist Prize, then the prize will not be awarded.

FORMAT:
Essays must be 30–100 pages in length and double-spaced. Submissions should preferably be printed (or typed) on both sides of the paper. Footnotes or endnotes are permissible and a bibliography is required. Pages are to be numbered, with the author’s name and the title of the essay on each page. Also, the author’s name, address, as well as email should appear on the first or cover page. Submissions via email and digital files on computer disk are not permitted, but contributors should be prepared to supply a digital copy of their essay if requested.
