Lydia just dropped me a note in the comments to ask why Malaysia is not listed in the countries from which writers are eligible to take part? Is it just an embarrassing oversight on the part of the organising committee, or has Malaysia just dropped off the map of Asia ... or do they think Malaysians are so hopeless there's really no point asking us?? I've sent an e-mail to ask.

Of course entries from Malaysia are eligible and welcome. What you caught was an error that apparently arose when converting documents from one format to another. Thank you very much indeed for bringing it to our attention. It has been corrected.
