    Default Summer Writing Competition 2013!~

    ~Welcome to the Summer Writing Competition!~


    WOOHOO!




    It's here again folks, and it's citrus and sunshine flavored! Welcome to the 2013 Summer Writing Competition (SWC)! YAY! For new and veteran authors, the Summer Writing Competition is one of two annual writing competitions hosted on the URPG. It's a great opportunity to post your work and possibly win a grand prize - a permanent legendary! There are more prizes, from Pokemon to monetary prizes just for voting! Come on in and participate in the SWC today!

    Entry Guidelines

    • You may submit a story from July 1st to 11:59 P.M. PST July 31st; any story posted before or after this time frame will be deemed ineligible for this competition.
    • You may write as many stories as you wish! However, you may only submit one story into the SWC. Please put SWC somewhere in your thread title for our convenience.
    • Your entry can be no longer than 150,000 characters.
    • You must be a member of the URPG to participate in the SWC. If you're not a URPGer yet, go sign up! We'd love for you to participate!


    Voting


    Once the submission window closes, I'll be dividing the stories into a number of rounds. There's a 3k prize just for voting in one round! Here's a bit more about voting:

    • You must be a member of the URPG to vote.
    • When voting, vote for your favorite story within the round, and not your favorite person. Winners of this competition should be selected by the depth of creativity and talent featured in the story, not by the person.
    • If your story is featured in a round, you can still vote! In fact, you'll get an extra three points for voting in the round your story is featured in! What's not allowed is voting for yourself. That'd be awkward.
    • Voters will receive 3k for voting, claimable at the end of that round. There might be a special prize for those who vote in all the rounds!~
    • Voting time frame and total rounds will be announced once the submission window closes. There will be preliminary rounds, and then a final round!
    • When voting, send me a private message with the stories you liked the best in that round, with 1 being your favorite story and 3 being your least favorite story in that round. The story that has the highest combined tally in that round will win that round!
    • Include a two-sentence summary of the story in your private message. For those who like seeing examples, here's a cute example!

    2. Lovely Story Title; In this story, a young girl flies away on a Drifloon. She ends up stranded in the middle of a forest and must navigate her way back home with the aid of only her long lost brother's compass.
    3. Another Story Title; A troubled teenager must save the world when a series of events, beginning with a turbine crashing through his roof, changes his life. He enlists the help of a talking Lopunny named Frank.
    HA now you can't use any of those ideas! Except that last one was just a Donnie Darko summary.

    Prizes


    What you've all been waiting for! Victory in this competition is a highly commendable achievement, and will thus feature great prizes!

    1st Place: a permanent Legendary Pokemon of your choosing and $10,000! oh baby!

    2nd Place: a Complex Pokemon of your choosing and $8,000!

    3rd Place: a Hard Pokemon of your choosing and $5,000!

    Prizes are subject to change based on amount of entries.

    Why has no one commented on the beautifully designed title which Smiles has provided for us?

    And for my amusement: 25- Cave In
