Default Winter Writing Competition 2011


GREETINGS

WELCOME TO THE WINTER WRITING COMPETITION

If you are new to the story section, a writing contest is held biannually for any member of the URPG to show off their writing skills and have a chance at glory, fame, and the prized legendary Pokemon!

Regular story 'rules' apply. There must be a successful capture ending your story before it may be submitted. There is no length requirement, so you may write whatever/however you want.

Have something prepared? Sweet. Have nothing? Nice going. But you have about 30 days to get those pencils into gear and write up the best story you can.

If any of this sounds really familiar... good. I copied it from Emma's 2009 contest opening post, and she copied it from 2008.

Guidelines:
  • Contest duration is November 31st through January 1st.
    Any stories posted during that time interval are eligible for this competition. There will be time after the deadline for final grading and to give people the chance to read them before voting.
  • Only URPG members are allowed to participate in writing.
  • You can write as many stories as you want but you may only submit one story for the competition. Also, your story MUST be graded and capture at least 1 Pokemon to qualify.
  • Tip: Long stories don't generally do better. Quality is very important.


Prizes:
The winner will receive any legendary of their choice (not already taken) to keep for the entire year and $10,000 in URPG currency.
The runner-up gets a pat on the back and $8,000 for a job well done.
Third place will earn a cool $5,000.
Everyone else? Experience and a pretty participation ribbon.

These prizes may differ for the better or worse depending on how many entries we receive.

Past Prevailing Authors:
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~ Natorei
19~ Kai-Mei
20~ YOUR DOG?


Voting:
  • The voting duration date will be determined later, as it gets closer and stories are graded.
  • Send me a Private Message titled something along the lines of "Story Votes."
  • Voters will get $3,000 for their effort, but please vote for your favorite story, not your favorite person. It keeps the contest fair, and based on talent rather than popularity.
  • You must be a member of the URPG to vote. You may vote even if you have a story entered, but you may not vote for yourself.


The contest will consist of preliminary rounds, and one final round. Each round, there will be five stories up for voting (this, of course, depends on the amount of entries we receive). You will PM me your top three favorite stories (1 being your first favorite, 3 being your third favorite) as well as at least a one or two sentence summary of the story. Yes, this is a pain, but it will only be a huge bother to the people who have not actually read the stories. If there is no summary, your votes will not be counted and you will not receive any money.

After a week, I will tally the votes of the round. The story with the most votes will move on to the final round as well as receive a small prize for being the best of their group (I haven't decided what I'm going to award, so I'll reveal that later. It all depends on the amount of entries submitted). Voters get 3k for voting per round. It's a hefty sum if they vote every round, so a couple sentence summary should not be a problem. Also, as added incentive, anyone with a story entered who votes in their own round will receive an automatic 3 points for themselves.

xStories:

The Case of the Diamond Pokeball by Dragoness
A Glance in the Mirror by White Knight
The Great Toad Frog Massacre by Black Reaper

Imagine That by MagikChicken
Into the Dark by Alaskapigeon

The Life of a Magikarp by gmandiddy

GO VOTE GUYS. 3K PER ROUND.

Due date is January 25th.
We have our first winner: the magnificent, the fantabulous, the rabbit-hearted Buoysel. (Ignore the fact that rabbit-hearted was actually an insult on par with pigeon-livered in the medieval ages. Dem and dat silly Great Chain of Being.) IT’S A COMPLIMENT. HE’S A GREAT GUY. He can also claim 5,000 for his effort.

The rest of you are also very excellent. Thank you very much for your submissions to the WWC. I hope to see you all again next year!

Rabbit Heart by Buoysel. – 2 + 3 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 3 (+3) = 18
Soul Wars by American TreeFrog – 3 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 1(+3)= 13
The Ugly Wurmple by PichuBoy – 1 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 2 (+3) = 12
Viridian Forest by Captain Dude – 2 + 1 + 1 + 3 + 1 = 8

And as always, thank you to our voters, who get 3,000 each…

THIS PLACE SURE IS LIVELY


APPARENTLY THIS ROUND WAS REALLY GRUESOME OR SOMETHING. THE AUTHORS APPEAR TO BE LUCKY TO HAVE EMERGED WITH THEIR LIMBS. Congratulations to Alaskapigeon for having more limbs than everyone else! She can collect 5,000 dollars.

Into the Dark by Alaskapigeon 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 13
The Life of a Magikarp by gmandiddy 3 = 3
New Dawn by Jack 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 (+3) = 9
Personal Essay: The Aspect of Loneliness by Zombie Muse 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 8

As always, our brave evaluators may take home 3,000 for their efforts.

Voters
Black Reaper
Hushie
Jack
Neighborhood-Guest
Story Lark

Next round is:

Quote:
The Case of the Diamond Pokeball by Dragoness
A Glance in the Mirror by WhiteKnight
The Great Toad Frog Massacre by Black Reaper
Imagine That by MagikChicken
There may be a pay bonus for this one, just 'cause one of the stories is FREAKING LONG.

As long as the other 4 voters laughed a bit, that's victory enough for me.

AWKWARD DELAY RELATED TO VOTE ISSUES

SO OUR FINAL ROUND IS UPON US. And in this case, the big, the bold, the gigantically spin-crushing story won. Imagine that! *cough* MagikChicken has wormed his way into our hearts with his novel-length beast. Congratulations to him. Also, $5,000 to him. :D

The Case of the Diamond Pokeball by Dragoness 3 + 2 + 2 + 3 (+3)
A Glance in the Mirror by WhiteKnight 2 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 1
Imagine That by MagikChicken 3 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 3 (+3)
The Great Toad Frog Massacre by Black Reaper 1 + 1 + 1 + 2

Our voters are downright heroic. Please collect $7,000 (yes, that’s right, more than the round prize). Voting is THAT WEIRD this round.

Voters
Akinai
Bumblebee
Dragoness
Jack of Clovers
Kai-Mei
MagikChicken

The terrifyingly terrifying final round includes:

Quote:
Rabbit Heart by Buoysel.
Into the Dark by Alaskapigeon
Imagine That by MagikChicken
Votes are due March 5.
