Fan Fiction Contest

Jeniam's Spot on the Web

Aim of Contest

The aim of this fanfiction contest is to find and explore new stories and plot lines, to develop the characters we have grown to know and love, in other words, to boldly go where no fanfic has gone before.

Rules of the Contest

The Rules are very simple and for the most part common sense, but I will go over them so that no assumptions remain to confuse the unwary.

1. Fics must be submitted by the author or with the authors permission.

2. Fics with glaring errors in grammar or spelling will not be considered. I'm not talking about typo's or minor errors, I mean the ones that hurt your head when you try to read the fic and make you want to swear because the story premise is good.

3. Last day of submissions will be the 15th of September 2001. Final results will be announced no later than the 30 of September 2001.

4. The categories for the fics will be as follows:

Slayers Long fic (10 000 words or more)

Short fic (less than 10 000 words)

Funny fic

Lost Universe Long fic(10 000 words or more)

Short fic (less than 10 000 words)

Funny fic

Crossovers within the Lost Universe/Slayers worlds can be submitted under either category.

5. No spam fics or lists

6. Fics will be judged using the following criteria

Plot line - 30%

Originality - 20%

Spelling grammar - 20%

Story layouts - 20%

Cohesiveness - 10%

7. The fics will be judged independently by three people and the scores averaged out.

Submission Format

Fics are to be submitted by email as a file attachment. The preferred formats are MS word or Word Perfect. However, I can handle most word processing format so most can be used except the most exotic.

The subject line should read fanfic contest

The body of the email should include the following information:


Type of fic

Short description of the story line (one or two sentences)

When written or last revised

Whether or not the author requests proofreading comments from the contest judges

Just a quick note if you send a file with only the comments "I send this for your consideration" It will be deleted unread for obvious reasons. I got one of those the other day and thinking it was a fic submission requested another copy when the file came up corrupted (-_-);;

Good Luck and good writing all, as you can see we'll go to any lengths to find new reading material.
