I was googling the title of an unpublished novel I wrote years ago when I noticed that it was on the short list of finalists in 2012 for the Faulkner Society / Pirate's Alley fiction contest. Really surprising, especially since the organizers never notified me at the time.

At first I was gassed (for a book I had pretty much forgotten about), but then I became curious. Is the Faulkner Society's competition one of those where just about everyone who enters gets some sort of honorable mention? Does anyone else have any knowledge about the contest?

The reason I ask is because I'm going through the humiliating process of looking for an agent for my most recent novel, and I am wondering whether I should mention being short-listed. I'm pretty sure it is something worth bragging about, but I want to be sure.
