Call for Submissions - Inkitt's Sci-fi Writing Contest

"Beyond Time." That's the title of Inkitt's science fiction writing contest. Submissions are open until 11:59 pm PST on July 27, 2015. Here's how the contest is described on the Inkitt contest page:
  Submit your most imaginative and fantastic science fiction stories! Transport us on a futuristic spaceship to meet extraterrestrial friends, experience other dimensions, or uncover a treasure through time travel. We want accounts that are spellbinding and world-altering, and we know you’ll deliver
  There is no minimum or maximum word limit, and, as always, no entry fee. The stories that earn the top 10% of reader votes get the chance to be picked by the Inkitt staff for 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.
  • Authors will retain all rights to works submitted to the contest.
  • Multiple entries are allowed, but each individual participant may win only one prize.
  • Old or previously published works are acceptable.
  • Physical prizes can only be shipped to the United States, Canada, countries in the EU, and Australia/New Zealand.
  • There is no age requirement for participation but all stories must be rated appropriately by their authors.
  • Inkitt staff are not eligible to receive prizes, or be chosen as winners.
  • Before submitting a story be sure to check our guidelines page to ensure that you comply with all of our publication rules.
The third place winner will receive Brenda Ueland's If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence and Spirit as well as a voucher for $20 worth of books. The second place prize is the same except the value of the voucher is $30. The grand prize includes Ms. Ueland's book as well as five printed-and-bound copies of the winner's story with custom typography created by Inkitt’s designer, and a Scrivener software package.

As always, this is just me sharing info. I am in no way compensated for sharing this, and its inclusion on my blog does not constitute an endorsement.
