I think to avoid a conflict of interest, an individual (as opposed to an entity) sponsor should not also enter, and vice versa.
Hello and thanks for this contest.
As a man of science I can only thanks you and ARC for your consideration of science of an important topic!
That said I would have liked to know if it will be possible to submit multiple entries?
I’m going to publish one of my scientific essay but I indulge myself in other types of writing. Can i make multiple entries?
If yes, can I win multiple prizes?
Yes to both, but experience has shown multiple entries can sometimes result in judge “fatigue” with an entrant so I suggest no more than 2 per category!
So, without having yet made up my mind on whether I would post an entry or not, but for the sake of argument lets say I did…and I still wanted to contribute as sponsor still, thus I would waive of any right to any possible reward…what would be the response to that?
Here is my first prose fiction submission for this years contest!
I hope everyone enjoys and I look forward to reading everyone’s submissions as well!
Also keep an eye out next month, I plan to submit two prose stories this year.
My entry for the prose category:
My entry in the category of poetry.
We have had people submit entries on a “review” but no prize basis before.
If you do end up both sponsoring the contest and submitting an entry, I would like to invite you on a candlelight dinner as a little compensation for both your generosity and your effort.
Hmmm, I’m enticed to sponsor now
You are always welcome to come over for dinner.
I’ll take you up on that.
I’m submitting this entry to the prose category.
Well careful, the actual winners might get jealous over devalued prize awards…I hear jealousy is a thing amongst capsuleers if one cared enough
I am sure we can find a solution.
Here we go with the Academic/News category entry:
Oh, so sorry to bump you, sir/madam. Please, if I may, I’d like to get you another of what you were drinking.
Submitted under the scientific/academic category: [YC120 Writing Contest] New Eden system general research proposal with special emphasis on the EVE Gate
I submitted my entry under the scientific/academic category too
((OOC: thanks you for the contest it was fun writing it))
Two weeks to deadline!
