      A Picture Paints a 1000(scratch that)1750 Words Writing Contest

      Winners are in! You can find them by clicking HERE

      There are so many creative writers here on wizard101central. Here is your opportunity to enter a writing contest to win some super great prizes!
      The idea of this event is simple. You are going to use the scene shown below as a starter for a story. It can be of any genre, with any subject, plot, theme, as long as this scene is featured in your story. The scene can be in the beginning, middle or end of your story. Not only do you need to feature the scene, you need to use as many elements of the scene in your story as you can - as naturally as you can. The people, the items, the scenery - whatever you can see in the picture below is fair game to use in your story.

      If you enter this competition, you'll compete to win 60,000 crowns! That's enough crowns to unlock ALL areas of the game with a little left over.

      This event is open to all wizard101central members, except for the judges. One entry per account.

      Here is the scene(click it to make it bigger)!

      All artwork by KingsIsle. I just edited it to form a scene.



      Rules(if you aren't sure on the rules, please ask here):

      Your entry **must be** between 1250 - 1750 words inclusive (which means no more and no less than). I'll be using this page: http://www.wordcounttool.com/ (Link approved by Olivia) to check the word count of every story. You will not be penalised for having a story that is 1250 words long, or a story that is 1750 words long, but write a story with 1249 words or 1751 words or more and face disqualification!

      You must use as many elements from the scene as you can. Well written and interesting descriptive passages are definitely a plus for your story. Keep the inclusion of each item/character, etc from the scene natural, don't just plonk them in there without having a reason for them being in the story.

      The idea is to write a story that can provide a plausible explanation for this scene, so keep that in mind if you're putting detailed information about the location. The story must be about Wizard101.

      No plagiarism(borrowing other's writing). No using pre-written stories. The more unique and original your story is, the better.

      One entry per person i.e. forum account (not one entry per wizard character). You may work with someone else to write the story but the prize will be awarded to the one who submits the story.

      The deadline for the event is August 8th, 2010, at 8:59pm Central US time.
      No entries will be accepted after this time. All entries must be posted to the entry thread found here. Winners will be PMed in order to award prizes.

      You may edit your posts up to the deadline time; after that your entry will be disqualified. I will post in the entry thread and this thread to say CLOSED when the deadline hits, after that no edits or new entries will be permitted. I will try and arrange for the entry thread to be locked as well if a moderator is available and isn't too busy!

      Excellent spelling and grammar is a must, as is correct formatting (i.e. I don't want to see any of those weird boxes in your post.) I strongly suggest copying directly from Notepad. Obviously English is not everyone's first language, but I will not accept entries tht r riten lik dis. If your first language is something other than English, I strongly suggest you write the story in your native language then use a good online translation tool to translate it to English. Remember that online translation tools work best when using proper grammar and spelling, etc.

      Judging will be based on the following five criteria:
      1. spelling, grammar, punctuation.(5 points)
      2. creativity and originality(15 points)
      3. your incorporation of elements in the scene (10 points)
      4. story flow, structure, plot, theme(5 points)
      5. whether the judges found it an interesting story to read.(15 points)

      I have four judges which means your story can earn a theoretical maximum of 200 points. If for some reason there are any draws in the top ten, I will judge the stories to announce a winner, following the same criteria.

      Up until the deadline, I will be checking the stories to make sure they follow the rules as mentioned above. If they do not reach my standards for spelling/grammar/punctuation, if they are too long or too short, or if there is some other reason that I consider them not in line with the rules of this competition, I will send you ONE Private Message to let you know what is wrong with your story so you have a chance to edit it. If you submit your story in the last few hours you will lose this opportunity.


      Prizes:

      (I reserve the right to change the prize list as necessary. The number of prizes awarded depends on the number of entries received.)


      1st place: 60,000 crowns OR a 1 year subscription to wizard101 plus a fog unicorn. That's enough to unlock all areas of the game plus a little extra! You choose which one you want!
      2nd place: 60,000 crowns or a 1 year subscription to wizard 101 plus a fog unicorn. You don't get the choice. You get whatever first place didn't choose.
      3rd place: A six month subscription to wizard101 and a fog unicorn.
      4th place: $20 Gift Card and a fog unicorn.
      5th places A fog unicorn
      6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th places awarded 5000 crowns each.


      In the words of Jeff Probst,"Worth playing for?".




      Important details to remember:

      - Deadline is 8 August 2010 at 8:59 pm Central US Time.
      - No posting stories or editing stories after the deadline or they will not be judged.
      - Use as much of the scene as naturally as you can.
      - Excellent spelling, grammar, and punctuation is a definite plus.
      - Do take your time writing your stories. The judges are looking for quality.
      - Entries must be posted in the entry thread found here , questions must be posted in this thread.
      - There is no need to say you are entering, just post your finished story in the entry thread.

      Thank you to:

      - aces1786, KingsIsle, and an anonymous giver for prizes.
      - Olivia for approving the outside link.
      - KingsIsle artists for their awesome artwork.
      - Edward Dragontamer for rendering a pic or two for me.
      - All my lovely judges (who will remain anonymous).

      Question Re: A Picture Paints a 1000(scratch that)1750 Words Writing Contest

      Sorry, but I have a quick question. So from the scene, do we have to make up new names and stuff for the characters? Or are they still the same person. Example: Should we make Professor Greyrose have a new name and character, or is she still supposed to be Professor Greyrose? I hope that made sense...
