Aeon Award Fee

Welcome! On this page you can safely and securely pay the modest €8.50 entry fee to the International Aeon Award Short Fiction Contest with funds from your PayPal account or your credit card. You can also pay for multiple entries in one go!

The process is quick and simple (honestly!) and is mostly self-explanatory. For those accustomed to Shopping Carts in general, simply skip down this page and press the “Add to Cart” button to start the process. But for those less familiar, here is a guide to the process in 5 steps:

(3) This brings up the Checkout page, where you should enter your address and email. You’ll have the opportunity to add an optional note (e.g. to include the title of your story). Once done, click on the blue “Place Order” button at the bottom of the page.

(4) This opens a secure PayPal webpage with the title “Albedo One & Aeon Press” (that’s us!!).

To choose option (2), click on the “Don’t Have a PayPal Account?” link.

(5) A new page loads in which you can enter your credit card details. Finally press the orange “Review and Continue” button at the bottom of the page to complete paying the fee.
