August Short Story Competition length

edited August 2014 in Writing
The Love Story competition in the August edition of the magazine states that we "...have 1,500 - 1,700 words in which to write..." our story.

Any idea whether a story shorter than 1,500 words would be disqualified?

Previously, I have had to brutally prune my short stories to bring them down to the maximum count, but this time all the essential elements of my story have only totaled 670 words.
