What the contest is:
The contest is a legacy funded by Galaxy Press as stipulated in the will of L. Ron Hubbard - who, as many know, was one of the most prolific Sci-Fi Fantasy writers of all time. Anyone from any background, nationality, religion, ethnicity, gender, sex, age, education level, (etc.) may enter and has an equal chance of winning.
What the contest is not:
The contest is independent of the Church of Scientology. It is not funded by the CoS in any way. Judges are not members of the CoS. There is no encouragement to know anything about the CoS before, during, or after the contest.
This is as pure an opportunity as any young artist will ever have.
