Thank you all for making this contest such a successful one. I would like to thank all the participants, imovestars, Apration, looking4truth,
Jamesthelesser, junglejake, DeusEx, mrwupy, MemoryShock, mankoW, darklanser, Patriot36, TheDemonHunter, invader_chris, Kushi_Master, cosmokatt7, and
Without your talent and contribution, our little contest would be nothing.
This contest was very difficult for our judges. Writers, you presented a wide array of great stories and I can say that each judge has his/her own
personal favorite among them all. The team of judges consisted of both moderators and members, who read each story and then gave it a grade between
1-100% based on the following criteria. How well the story fits into Ancient Civilization topic, the readability, flow, and premise of the story and
lastly spelling and grammar (which didn't play a big part, but was only a consideration). While there are editors for spelling in real life, ATS
writers should always strive to present their work in the best possible format to the public. Each judge provided me with their scores for each entry
and the stories with the highest average were selected as winners.
I am now very pleased and proud to announce our winners:
First Place & 5000 points: TheDemonHunter
with a score of 95.6% for
2nd Place & 3500 points: mrwupy
The Last Atlantian.
3rd Place & 1500 points: junglejake
The Pyramids Of Rock Lake
I have also decided to award what I call Honorable Mention or our 4th place story with 250 points, so imagine my surprise to find we had a three-way
tie, the following stories all score 91.8%
I am a man now
Revenant- Fall of Minos
Congratulations to all our writers, each and everyone of you should be proud of your talents. Don't be discouraged if you didn't win this time, you
will have many opportunities to do so in the future. So keep those creative juices flowing and see you in the next contest.
