show us your best writing skills! ||writing contest||
« on: October 27, 2020, 06:21:30 PM »
hello all!! the staff team has something very exciting to introduce as means to boost some creative motivation! we've decided to host a quarterly writing competition! since this is the very first one, it will be a tester to see how we can incorporate this into a regular event. that being said, any constructive criticism is very much welcomed and will be considered moving forward. now, down to the details:

the writing and rules
-submissions can follow any topic or genre! seasonal topics are preferred but will not play into final considerations for winning pieces.
-all pieces must follow all site rules. any piece that breaks any site rule will not be considered.
-there is no word count requirement. submissions can be as short or long as you'd like, but length will not play into final considerations.
-to be considered, you must post your submission in this thread on or before friday, november 27th, 2020 at 7pm central standard time.

the judges
-the judge panel will consist of 4 people- 2 staffers and 2 members.
-no judge will be allowed to submit a piece for consideration.
-winners will be decided and announced within 3 days of submission deadline.
*the first 2 members to pm me or truce about their desire to judge will be the 2 member judges for this round.*

winners and prizes
-3 winners will be chosen and announced no later than monday, november 30th.
-all winners will be notified via pm before the announcement.
-an announcement thread will be posted, congratulating each winner with a link to each winning piece.
-3rd place winner will be awarded 10,000 bones.
-2nd place winner will be awarded 25,000 bones
-1st place winner will be awarded 50,000 bones, a creative commission of their choosing, and a shoutout, by username, in the header with a link to their piece, as well as a reserved spot on the next panel of judges for the next contest! the reserved spot on the next panel of judges is completely optional; there is no obligation to accept it!

if you have any questions, feel free to ask us below or pm me or truce! good luck all!! we look forward to seeing what you create!

I decided that, since I've not had enough time to write a new submission, I would submit something that I wrote last year instead! You'll find it HERE teehee
