    I'm not sure you should limit it to 10, the 10 might not complete it. Or you might miss some good stuff. I see what you mean about having to read them all.

    One week might work!

    There can always be more competitions or submissions later on, too. I don't think people are only interested in this for the prize. I mean, hey, if you want to write a short story and share it... nobody is stopping you.

    Maybe the most ambitious 10. First come, first serve sorta thing? It'd suck for those that scramble to write something and then get denied, but hey, life isn't fair.

    I don't know how the hell to do this.

    So what? It's a competition.

    It's his contest and he can't make it perfect for everyone... And I don't think that having a deadline is unreasonable.

    Yeah, but he is asking for suggestions so I'm giving mine, too.
