~THE RULES~

Post  Admin on Tue Oct 27, 2009 8:38 pm

  • This contest is based on the original 1-hr-contest, in which the current host of the contest offers up an original character(s) of their own and the participants draw said character(s) within the span of an hour and then submit it to the host. After a week of submissions, the host then chooses the piece he/she likes the most; the winner is then the new host and the process begins again.


  • The exception with the writing contest is, of course, instead of fan art being submitted fan fiction will be submitted. The current host offers up an original character(s) of their own as well as a specific genre they want the submissions to follow (horror, romance, humor, etc.) In addition to, or perhaps instead of the provided genre, it is suggested that the host create a prompt by way of a sentence or two to help inspire the participants (“Betty bounced the big blue ball down the hall.”). Participants then write a short story about said character(s) within the span of an hour. After a week of submissions, the host then chooses the piece he/she likes the most; the winner is then the new host and the process begins again.


  • You cannot win twice in a row (i.e. Bobby hosts contest, Jannie participates, Bobby picks Jannie as the winner, Jannie hosts contest, Bobby participates, Jannie picks Bobby as the winner, Bobby hosts contest again). This does not mean that you cannot participate, only that you are ineligible for winning until the next round.


  • It's also important that the host offer up reference material on the character(s) such as their setting, personality, and appearance, by way of pictures, writing excerpts, or both.


  • Because this is an honor based system, it would be unknown exactly how long participants actually spend on their piece, though to be fair to everyone involved it is important to stay within the hour time span (or as close to it as possible).


  • In order to receive important updates, it is encouraged to “watch” the contest account. “Watching” the account will thus make you a member of the group, though you are not obligated to enter every time. Conversely, it is encouraged for participants to “watch” as well, so that contact may be made easier.


  • ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE SENT TO THE CURRENT HOST OF THE CONTEST, NOT THE CONTEST ACCOUNT.


EXCESSIVE SWEARING AND/OR BAD MOUTHING OF THE CHARACTERS, HOST(S), AND/OR ENTRIES WILL NOT BE TOLERATED, AND THE PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE WILL NOT ONLY BE BANNED FROM THE ACCOUNT, BUT WILL ALSO BE PINNED ON TO THE WALL OF SHAME.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
