FT's 14th Anniversary Writing Contest!
« on: June 20, 2017, 05:32:38 pm »
Hello everyone, and happy 14th year anniversary FT! (Technically speaking it's on the 2nd of July.)
Now there are a few events that will be going on to celebrate the occasion. One of which, will be the topic of this post.
I am happy to announce that one of the events we will be hosting is a writing contest! We've seen gaming contests, and visual-art contest, but as far as I am aware, FT has never hosted an official writing contest until now! I'm very excited to see how it turns out.

This is how it shall work.
There will be 3-5 of rounds depending on how many people join the competition.
Each round having a new theme to follow. (Examples: Passion, water, favorite animal) As well as a time limit.
Now this contest will be two separate categories, poetry, and short story (500 words or less), and each round you may choose to write one or the other, but not both.
The scoring system its that of an accumulative one. You get a score for each round, and at the end of the contests, your scores will be used to determine an average, and final score, which will determine the winners.

Three judges, Crazywolf, Alastair, and myself, will review the entries, and rate them based on spelling, grammar (punctuation is counted towards the grammar rating), quality of the writing (I understand the use of "fluff", and even like it usually, but try not to use to much, "quality over quantity" as they say), and style, and of course, a slight personal preference.


The first round starts now!
The themes for this round are..
Poetry: Nostalgia.
Short Story: The passing of time.
If you would like to participate, then please send your entry, to my PM box.
The deadline for this, is the 30th this month.

And of course, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Would it be morally wrong to bribe the judges?
Furthermore, is it against the rules to bribe the judges?

Well, it took a lot more time, loads of procrastination. And two separate attempts at an entry (I can still polish up the old one and make it into a proper story) but I finally got around to submitting my entry! Huzzah, PROGRESS!

Ah, I was under the assumption more people had applied, I see know why you were reluctant to share that statistic  :lol-fox:. Shame too, it would have been nice for it to go on multiple rounds. And I am seconding guessing my entry. As a first entry it was fine but if I knew it was going to be the only entry I'd have reviewed it further and maybe gone back for another round of revisions. Perhaps it might have been better to go with my first attempt. Alas, time shall tell if the right decision was made.

I'm sure you did quite nicely. I'd say you have a pretty good chance of winning, without having even seen it.
