    Writing Contest - O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

    Ever want to write something, and see it on the front page of one of the largest MMO sites on the net?

    Now is your chance!

    Prizes:

    First Place:
    Winning article, essay, etc, will have a spot on our front page!
    1,000 MMOwned Cash
    Custom User Title
    Custom Username Color/Glow
    Special Usergroup for 1 month

    Second Place:
    500 MMOwned Cash
    Custom Username Color/Glow

    Third Place:
    250 MMOwned Cash
    Custom Title Color/Glow


    Rules:

    1. Your entry must be original. Any plagiarized work will be means for disqualification (and likely public ridicule!)
    2. Your entry need not be about WoW directly! It must however, be meaningful for any of our 3 sites (MMOwned, FPSOwned, RTSOwned). Your article will likely be posted on the most relevant site's front page.
    3. Your writing MUST contain at least 1000 words, and no more than 3000 words.
    4. Failure to use a spell-checker, etc, before entry will likely mean losing points.
    5. Entries MUST be in English only!
    6. Any images within your writing may include bonus points, however they do not go towards your word count. - This is entirely up to the judges discretion!
    7. You may enter ONCE. However, you may edit your entry at any time before the contest ends. (Just send me the edited version) If I deem the versions are too far different, I'll exclude it as an entry.
    8. Receiving infractions, or temporary bans during the contest will be means for disqualification.
    9. News Team & Staff cannot enter!


    Deadline:

    You have 20 days from the time of this posting to submit your entries!

    All entries must be submitted via PM to me. Any entries submitted in this thread will not be valid!

    Sooo, would a CoD fanfic be an acceptable entry?

    Or does this have to be some kind of news article?

    Interesting, the scope of subjects available for writing about is formidable, but going into enough detail as to match the 1000 word count and remain interesting is another matter entirely. Time to do some frameworks.

    Ok so what does this "entry" has to be? I thought of a story, a little bit humorous, a little bit racist,not so much related to WoW or MMOwned, actually it goes there only like 2 times,but I think it's interesting.Do you guys think I've a chance?

    I've submitted my entry.

    Is more than one entry allowed? If so, I may do another one for the hell of it.

    So... I don't fully understand what is within the realm of acceptable subjects. It seems incredibly vague.

    Something to do with MMOwned, FPS or RTS so I presume it is an article about gaming.

    Sorry, I thought I stated it in the first post; 1 entry per person. You may make edits up until the end of the contest though. (Submitting 2 different pieces obviously won't be counted)

    Also; a lot of very interesting entries so far! Keep them coming!

    Sorry folks, I ran into some RL problems and couldn't maintain the contests as I would have liked to.

    I'll be extending the contests until the 31st of October. (5 days)

    You have until then to enter!
