Here it is, the very first contest of woods_of_images
The rules are simple; create a story of any kind that the picture given behind the cut can easily be paired with. There's no limit on how many words you can write or how few words you can write. You have three weeks from today to get your entries submitted (entries will no longer be accepted after April 3, 2007 at midnight PST-west coast time). Entries must be posted to the community like any other story you would post, with the normal stuff outside the cut and the story behind the cut. You do not have to submit the picture with your story but do have 'Picture Contest #1
' somewhere outside the cut so everyone will know that it is an entry.
Sometime on April 4th I will post an entry with links to all entries to the contest and a poll so everyone, including those who submitted entries can vote for their favorites. I'll keep the first one simple and just have 'Favorite', 'Most Covered' (simply meaning covering many details in the picture) and 'Out of the Ballpark' (meaning the writer touched base with the picture but wandered off in a completely different direction). Don't feel like you have to narrow your story to the categories given, just write and see what happens! After all, that is what this contest is really
about; getting those creative juices flowing! Comments are allowed on the stories themselves as with any story submitted to this community.
Winners of all categories will be given a nifty little banner that they can proudly display where ever they wish to.
So let's get creative!Title:
And So It Begins! (Picture Contest #1
Just the one! Disclaimer:
This isn't actually a story, just the picture. :)( The city had gone to hell, without the handbasket.Collapse )
I really hope a lot of you will enter this! I know people get busy and life happens, but it would be nice to see some participation.
As always, feel free to suggest things, ask questions, give input! Above all, have fun with this!
