OK folks, I believe that the time has come for our next Short Story Writers Contest!

This time around, our previous winner AugustusMasonicus has chosen the theme:


"CREATION"

So, all Short Story Entries for this contest must contain or relate to that theme.
How you do that is, of course, up to You... Augustus has specifically asked that we leave the interpretation of the theme entirely up to YOU guys & gals!

Video and Audio (spoken word) submissions are not acceptable this time around.
Photos and BBcode Editing most certainly are allowed.


Rules Of Entry

The contest will run from NOW to Thurs 22nd June 2017.
(Any submissions after that date will be disqualified.)

A period of ONE WEEK after the closing of the contest will be provided for voting.

All T&C's Apply.

All entries MUST include [CRE2017] in the title.

All entries must be linked in this thread, and please include [writer] or [non-writer] in your submission post within this thread.

There is no minimum or maximum character count, and the entry can be submitted over one or more posts, but please bear in mind that it is a SHORT STORY contest!

Also, please END your submission with "THE END" so that everyone is clear that your entry is complete.

1 Single Story Submission is allowed Per Member.


There will be 3 winners among members who already have "Writer" status, prizes as follows:

1st Place -- 5 Applause, and selection of the next contest theme
2nd Place -- 3 Applause
3rd Place -- 1 Applause

There will also be 3 winners from the non-writer category who will receive the following:

1st Place -- 3 Applause & Writer Status
2nd Place -- 2 Applause & Writer Status
3rd Place -- 2 Applause

Scoring

Flags will be worth 2 points each.
Stars will be worth 1 point each.
*Stars for subsequent posts (ie. additions to the story after the initial story post) will be worth .5 stars.


Enjoy!

Interesting theme, but I may pass on it. I'm a terrible writer.

I'm curious what exactly are applause?

How often are these contests?

ATS seems the perfect place writers. There is just endless material here. I'm looking forward to reading the submissions.

Hi DJ,
Applause is awarded by the ATS staff in recognition of quality contributions from members here.
It's just a way to say "Thanks and Well Done" for making a positive contribution here.

The Short Story Contests happen around 8 or 10 times a year.
When the contest is active, it will usually be "pinned" at the top of the Short Stories forum, as are all of the entries for "judging" by the members. Votes are cast by simply awarding Stars and/or flags to the entries that you enjoy.

After the closing date, the scores are tallied up... and the entry with the highest score is declared the winner, and gets to choose the theme for the next Short Story Contest.

Non-Writers can achieve "writer" status by doing well in these contests too.
The quality of writing is usually unbelievably high and we've had some amazing entries in all of the recent contests.

Join in!

PS - I forgot to say that there is a record of the recent contest results in This Thread HERE!
cheers!
