Clarkedav282 Vishalreddy I've tried applying as well and the novel was indeed rejected. However, it only rejected my novel when I applied for the contest using my mobile device, but when i tried applying using my laptop, the novel was accepted. Maybe you can try using a different device to apply for the contest? If that doesn't work, maybe reading through the contest guidelines again and searching for a possible loophole in your story's info will work?
If neither of those work, then: ¯_(ツ)_/¯
