:: The Lottery Project prefers to include text and / or image content only.

:: Submissions should fall under one of the following archive categories:

  • criticism
  • curating
  • experimental
  • fiction
  • game
  • interview
  • non-fiction
  • visual art

:: The Lottery Project primarily handles submissions in English. If a submission is in another language, an accurate English translation must accompany it. Additionally, edits are to be expected, therefore both language versions must reflect all editorial changes. Be prepared to align both versions (the original and its translation) for accuracy.

:: If you have a submission that you’d like The Lottery Project to consider that does not fall under an already-existing archive category, email info@lotteryproject.lt with subject line parameters a brief introduction including your full contact information and a work sample as attachment. Also, in the body of your message, include a suggested archive category (one word preferred) that you would like The Lottery Project to create on your behalf.

:: The Lottery Project only accepts new texts and work (i.e., never before published, shared or exhibited content—including images).

:: Simultaneous submissions are smiled upon, but notify The Lottery Project via info@lotteryproject.lt if submitted work has been accepted elsewhere. Inform of the estimated date of your submission. This makes withdrawing your work easier, if need be.

:: When submitting images, you must obtain permission from the copyright holder and clearly indicate copyright holder details.

:: Except where otherwise noted, content on this site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International Licence (2019).

:: If your submission cannot be sent via these submission parameters, email concerns to info@lotteryproject.lt with subject line parameters and further explain.

:: All texts, images and related content are solely the legal responsibility of each contributor. In other words, The Lottery Project accepts no legal responsibility for contributions published on this site.

:: Anonymous submissions are not accepted, but pseudonyms may be considered (case by case).

:: Contributors must be familiar with Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” (1948) so as to participate in The Lottery Project.
