Consideration for Wattpad Paid Stories, our monetization program where writers earn money directly on Wattpad.

Consideration for Wattpad Stars, our writer development program.

The odds of winning the above prize is dependent on the total number of entries per category.

Five winners will be chosen per category and language.

Five (5) additional stories from Wattpad's Paid Stories program will be chosen as winners.

The value of winning is priceless.

One (1) Winner will be considered for a publishing deal with Wattpad Books ("WPB Consideration").

Wattpad Books is looking for diverse voices who were once overlooked or marginalized and gives them a platform to unleash their unique stories to the world. By taking stories our community has obsessed over, Wattpad Books is poised to disrupt traditional publishing. One Watty Winner will be chosen for consideration to take their story from platform to paperback and directly onto bookshelves!

Only Winners with winning submissions written in English will be considered for WPB Consideration.

WPB Consideration will be judged by the panel on a separate judging rubric

Wattpad reserves the right to not award any Winners with WPB Consideration if Winner submissions do not meet a minimum criteria of 95/100 on the above rubric or Wattpad cannot come to commercial terms, at Wattpad's sole discretion, on a Wattpad Books publishing deal.

The approximate value of the prize will depend on the perceived market value of the entry chose for WPB consideration, but will be equivalent to other books published by Wattpad, and no less than $1000 USD.
