CONTEST END

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 22, 2012, 4:48 PM
EDIT: The Contest has reached its end. As soon as Tuka and I have time, we'll get on the judgement :3 thank you all for the entries, I didn't expect so many =D
Everyone who has entered can publish their entry now, if you want.



:bulletblue: CONTEST :bulletblue:

[EDIT]: Two more rules added.

So people.
:icontukathewolf: and I decided to host a contest :iconyeahplz:
NOT an art contest!


It's going to be a writing contest.

Write a short story to our pony-OCs Ragtag and Shooting Star.
Whatever ideas you may have. Slice of life, an adventure, at the gala, filly-stories, anything you want.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

The Rules:

:bulletred: No R34!
:bulletred: No Gore or violence!
:bulletred: No Shipping!! Except for those that have been established in the story
:bulletred: Ragtag and Shooting Star HAVE to be in the story, and you can choose whether any of their friends or their parents shall appear.
:bulletred: It must be written in either English or German.
:bulletred: The story should be about 500 words long, but that's just a rough presetting. You can write more or less, but it should be around this area (not 1000 words or something)
:bulletred: When finished, send the story to me via Note.
:bulletred: You can upload the story on you account, but please AFTER the contest has been finished so other participants won't be influenced.
:bulletred: You can enter multiple stories.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

What we will judge on:

:bulletorange: If the characters are actually in character.
:bulletorange: If the places are correct (as fillies, they are living with their parents in ponyville, but don't know their other friends yet. As young adults, they are living in Trothampton. If you set the story in Ponyville then and their friends appear, you need to at least provide an explaination on why they are there.) Basically on continuity as a whole.
:bulletorange: Grammar (yes, we check on that too. We're nitpicky judges.)

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Prices:

:bulletyellow: 1st place: A picture with 2 characters and simple background + 200 Points
:bulletyellow: 2nd place: A picture of a single character without background +100 Points
:bulletyellow: 3rd place: 50 Points
______________________________________________________________________________________________

:bulletpink: DEADLINE: August 15th
______________________________________________________________________________________________

Do we have permission to post work in our own accounts that we weren't able to complete in time? (Of course full details about the contest and both of your ownership of the characters included).

[link] Thought it would be easier for you guys to read here instead of that small note screen.

I'm sure I'm also not the first one to say this, but thanks for giving us a contest for us writers to show our stuff. Too many MLP contests are based on art and vectors - it's good to give us literature freaks a chance.

Ah, that's no problem XD there were so many who wanted to write something with our OC's and we don't really like that, so we thought we might give them all a treat and host this contest. They can all write something but are controlled by us :iconcomeoverhereplz:

It was fun... it was fresh. I loved writing and how the script came out. I'm just hoping you'll think the same XD

So taking into account time zones and when I plan to leave work, that gives me 5 hours to come up with something.
