All:

In light of the successful contest the last three years I am pleased to announce the fourth year for a writing contest for stories or poems by Capsuleers .

There will be three categories:
1. Poetry
2. Prose
3. Academic/News (e.g. Academic, News Reporting, Economic Reports, Science Reports, Theological Writings, Treatises, etc.)

There will be a total of at least seven judges*, who will judge *ALL* categories:

Ayallah
Julianna Avala
Literia
Loai Qerl
Morwen Lagann
Silver Night
Tressith Sefira

(*I am open to adding one or two judges, so if interested message me)

There is no minimum length. Maximum length is 30,000 words. There is no required subject matter; the content may be fiction or non-fiction. All entries will be considered. Submissions are to be made by posting on Eve Forums - Eve Fiction or on http://backstage.eve-inspiracy.com . Your post should specifically reference at the outset that it is being submitted for consideration in the YC 119 New Eden Capsuleer's Writing Contest. If you have a good reason why you want to make a private submission, then contact me privately as to why.

DEADLINE for submissions is JULY 31ST of this year.

Additionally, each of the Judges may, in their discretion, award a personal prize to the favorite (regardless of the "place" of the submission)

All judges and I (as administrator) are disqualified from submission.

All entries will be considered.

if the quality of the entries does not merit the number of prizes, then prizes will be given up to the number deemed meritorious.

if people have any questions or need rulings, I am the contest administrator and you can feel free to message me directly.

The most "amusing" or "entertaining" to me* gets treated to a candlelit dinner by me at a fine restaurant.

Cordially, and with God's Blessings

((All submissions are expressly subject to the TOS and we certainly do not claim ownership. The submission of course, however, must be yours.

Note for ISD - This is specifically an In Character/Roleplay thing - a writing contest to be done by "characters", not the players. The expectation is the submissions, whether poetry, prose or academic ' would be in character or related to the character of to the capsuleer submitting it and people will have rp as part of the process. I also invite comments on the IGS related to this post in a RP vein or other RP in channels! Judging is also on an In character basis. This is the Fourth Year running for this contest.))

I think I might be able to throw something together.

30,000 words or less?

I will definitely consider this.

I'm not sure why this is so funny to me.

I don't care what you think, as long as it's about me.

I've been wanting to participate for a while, however wordsmithing is not my forte, and I'm really clueless as to finding a topic to write about. Best of luck.

As regards the 30,000 words, if I may? As a judge, it will be a pleasure to read everyone's work.

Which means, of course, that I will be reading everyone's work. I am looking forward very much to seeing the variety of perspectives New Eden brings to bear on a creative challenge and I am also looking forward to being able to eat and sleep and carry on with my other personal responsibilities! I hope many of you will give me good things to read and also that you will be, as the rules require, publishing your novel-length works on their own! I would like to read those too.

EDIT: But without a deadline. And with a muffin or something.

Added Ayallah as a judge.

I also appreciate the Sponsorships of Silver Night and Khaotique Savage and have added them to the OP!

Prize pool is now at least 5 billion isk and I will post an initial break down for the winners soon, as well as any other prizes (including Honorable Mentions).

It has been a year already!

Well I guess I should work on writing something new... what to do.

Well time to brainstorm for the coming manufacturing weeks. Look forward to seeing the other entries as well!

Yours in Service.
