    Default Winter Writing Competition '10



    {by Emma}


    So here we are, guys. For most of you, it's winter! The snow has piled up, the Christmas trees are up, and those thicker coats are taken to school. For some of us, however, the leaves on the palm trees stay green.

    So now for some rules. Of course, only URPG members can participate. The URPG story you submit must be graded and end in a successful capture in order to qualify as an entry. ONLY post your story on ONE FORUM, just like any other story. Only one entry is allowed per person.

    Graders: If you grade a story that is entered in this competition, post the grade, delete it, and PM a copy of it to the author; the same goes for re-grades. Myself and Scourge will handle these grades when Wages come around, so don't worry about it.

    Deadlines:

    - You have until Sunday, February 13th to send in your votes for Round 4.

    Prizes:

    1st Place: The Legendary Pokémon of your choosing and $10,000.

    2nd Place: You receive $5,000 and an awesome thumbs-up.

    Depending on how many people enter, there may be more prizes.

    Those Who Have Written Above All Else:

    1~ Jag
    2~ Marth
    3~ Shroomish
    4~ Jack of Clovers
    5~ Fair
    6~ Neo Pikachu
    7~ DaRkUmBrEoN
    8~ Pokemon Trainer Sarah
    9~ Seawolf
    10~ DaRkUmBrEoN
    11~ Seawolf
    12~ Tyranitar_Trainer
    13~ Fever
    14~ Phantom Kat
    15~ Bryce
    16~ Sequentio
    17~ Kai-Mei
    18~ Tú?!!

    Voting:

    - This competition, just like all the others, will be done through rounds. The voter reads the stories in the round and then PM me with their top three stories, rating them from first place to third place with short summaries of each. First place equals three points. Second place equals two points. Third place equals one point. After the voting period is over, I will tally up the points for each story and move on the next round.

    - When sending your PMs, please keep your summaries and ratings organized and neat. It makes it much easier to tally up votes without trying to figure out what the PM means.

    - Votes without summaries will not be counted. You just need at least two sentences for each story, guys.

    - Voters will get paid for voting; the amount depends on the amount of stories in each round and their length.

    - Only URPG members can vote. Those who are participating in the competition can vote. If your story is in the round you vote in, you get three points added to your total score.

    - Please vote for the best stories, not for your friends. The reason these competitions have been so successful and long-running is because voters are honest and truly want to see the best story win.

    A month is not nearly enough to do everything >.< But this could give me motivation to finally finish my fic. Maybe I should get on that. But mine might not get any votes anyway if nobody wants to read something so long D:

    Well that's the beauty of it. If they want to vote at all in the round you're in, they have to read it. lol

    Yeah, just (WWC) after title like with the SWC and NWC.

    Damn, serious motivation to work on that damn story. It will probably be around 40-50k when I:m done :P

    Looks like I have to think of a story, though I doubt I have much chance of winning. I will be voting this time around though, which is good.

    Exactly my questuin. Do we, like, have to follow a certain theme-say an X-mas one? Or can we just do whatever.

    OMG! 10K and a Legend?!! or 5K!! That is all the motivation I need.. hopefully. I hope I'll get that story done in a month, but my sched is kidof cramped, so... But, that's if we don't have to follow a certain theme. Then again, who would vote/read mine? But surely, I'll vote in this competition.

    There's no theme. If we do themed contests, they're between WWC and SWC--usually April or thereabouts. Those will also kinda be quirky. I AM THINKING UP SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR THEN, though. For now, just have fun doing whatever the heck you feel like.

    I might actually write a story for this. Also for themed comps maybe when Gen V gets introduced all of the stories entered have to be aiming for Gen V mons only??

    Can we have a theme where we only do awful, depressing stories? Where all the main characters die horrific deaths? Please!?

    I'm already beginning a story, but it needs to be larger before I can actually finish it for the competition.

    I'd say that would be interesting. I'd definitely enter that competition.
