OK ladies and gentlemen (and robots of all kinds),
It is time for our fist contest!!!
So here are the basic ground rules...
1) You must comment in this journal entry if you want to enter in the contest. (there is no exceptions)
2) You have to be a official member to join the contest (This is for update purposes only, you can "leave the group" after the contest if you want.)
3) This contest is for writers only no art work (however artwork at the beginning is alright, judges will be asked to not include this in the voting)
4) There will be three types of sections in the contest
A) Short Stories (1-3 pages)
B) Poetry (If less than 4 lines must present at least 2-3 more poems)
C) One Act Plays/Scripts (1-3 pages)
These entries will be judged on several factors.
A) Spelling (You will lose points for noticeable misspellings)
B) Grammar (It has to flow, without a doubt)
C) Punctuation (You won't be judged as harshly in this category unlike Spelling)
D) Interest factor (Your work must be your best if it isn't interesting then we wont read it and you will lose points)
E) Has to relate to the topic of the contest. (Hands down if it talks about flowers when the contest is about trucks your entry will not be judged)
F) STICK TO THE STORY LINE
(If it isn't consistent with your main idea you will lose points!)
5) Please Spread the News ! (In a journal please mention this contest so others can join if they want.)
That is it for the basics...
The contest subject will be "The Future": so this can take off in several directions.
Your character or characters could be stuck in a post apocalyptic world and they are writing about what is like, or it can be all butterflies and gumdrops and ice-cream and your character/characters are describing the great advancements made in the world. There are many more things that could be used as a story line but those are a couple of ideas.
Now The contest doesn't officially start for about another 2 months however this will give you time to enter, write something, and send it to us.
All entries will be accepted on July 12th and must be sent to our email -> email@example.com
This will ensure the privacy of our competitors.
All the people in the contest will receive ONE
