NOTE: To any Fanartists out there. Would you be interested in having a linked fanart contest at all? I'm working on an idea but I'm curious as to whether a fanart challenge/contest would be something that people would enjoy.
- The theme is open at the moment. However, if you would prefer to work from a prompt then that can be organised.
- All pairings are open. Categories will operate on a three fiction rule. Regardless of whether the fics are short or long, if the grand total of fics with a specific pairing is three or more than there will be a specific category for them. For example, if there are two long Heero/Duo fics and one short one, then there will be a Heero/Duo category for both long AND short fiction. If there are two long Otto/Noin fics then there will be no specific category and so the fics will be posted under the category of Other.
- The contest is open to gen and pairings only, no threesomes.
- Pairings can be established or future, as long as the pairing label reflects this.
- All ratings are welcome. G-NC17
- No death fics or NCS please.
- Minimum word count is 5000 words.
- Stories will be divided into short fiction 5000 - 25,000 words, and long fiction, 25,000 upwards.
- All stories must be completed.
- Stories must be new, not previously posted on the internet.
- You can enter as many stories as you like, as long as they fit the rules of the contest.
- Send your fics as a TXT or DOC file to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please head your fiction with author (this will be taken out for voting and added in later), pairings - mentioning which of these is your main -- or category -- pairing, ratings, and any relevant warnings. Please also include a word count.
- Stories will be posted up together, anonymously, after the deadline and will be judged by public vote.
- Long and short stories will be voted on separately within each pairing category. I.E the winner of the Quatre/Trowa short category will win a prize, as will the winner of the Quatre/Trowa long category.
- Winners will receive an art commission from the artist of their choice.
- The contest starts Friday April 4th and fics should be finished by 30th September. If more time is needed then there is the possibility of an extension.
