Submissions will be accepted through June 15, 2013. The magazine is published quarterly and is available online and can be viewed by all Internet connected devices – IPhones, android phones, digital tablets as well as computers.
To qualify, applicants must:

Students and local island residents who wish to pursue further education in a creative discipline are encouraged to provide multiple works for submission. In order to be eligible for the scholarship, creative work must be accepted and published in the online magazine. The scholarship will be awarded by July 21, 2013, and the winner information will be published in the July issue, which will feature Nature and Ecotourism, and Celebrate Nature’s Bounty, focusing on the winners of the 2013 Caribbean Hotel and Tourism event - Taste of the Caribbean. The mission at CARIBBEANonlinemagazine is to promote the ”Caribbean Islands as One” and to provide a showcase for local creative talent.
“CARIBBEANonlinemagazine is honored and excited to be able to provide this opportunity to all Caribbean islands residents,” said Justine Mis, founder of Better World LLC, creator of digital publications and special island events (www.CARIBBEANonlinemagazine.com), headquartered in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. “We view this as a unique and inspiring program that promotes a creative inspiration for writers and artists and will benefit our readership, providing unique information about the Caribbean rather than the standard ‘travelogue’ available elsewhere.”
