In light of the successful contest the last six years I am pleased to announce the SEVENTH (yay!) year for a writing contest for stories or poems by or about Capsuleers/Baseliners and their worlds and cultures.
CATEGORIES: There will be three categories:
3. Academic/News (e.g. Academic, News Reporting, Economic Reports, Science Reports, Theological Writings, Treatises, etc.)
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION - MAY 15th
There is no minimum length. Maximum length is 30,000 words. There is no required subject matter; the content may be fiction or non-fiction. Prior works are eligible as long as posted or published AFTER May 15, YC 121 (2019). This means, for example, works in the recent story-time thread on the IGS can be nominated by their authors for consideration.
Please post entries by linking in this thread or by a clear label in the Eve Fiction category of these forums, e.g. [YC 122 NEWCWC your work title here] as the title.
PRIZES 26.5 BILLION ISK SO FAR
FIRST PLACE - 5 billion isk
SECOND PLACE - 3 billion isk
THIRD PLACE - 750 million isk
FOURTH PLACE - 250 million isk
Honorable Mentions - 50 million isk
(Rolled over from last year - an anonymous donation. Another 5.5 billion received from Arc! 5 Billion from Francophobia! Other Sponsors Welcome and Needed!)
Each of the Judges may, in their discretion, award a personal prize to the favorite (regardless of the “place” of the submission)
The most “amusing” or “entertaining” to me* or intriguing gets treated to a candlelit dinner by me at a fine restaurant
All judges and I (as administrator) are disqualified from submission for prizes.
All entries will be considered.
if the quality of the entries does not merit the number of prizes, then prizes will be given up to the number deemed meritorious.
if people have any questions or need rulings, I am the contest administrator and you can feel free to message me directly.
Cordially, and with God’s Blessings

((OOC NOTE FOR ISD - This is specifically an In Character/Roleplay thing - a writing contest to be done by “characters”, not the players. The expectation is the submissions, whether poetry, prose or academic ’ would be in character or related to the character of to the capsuleer submitting it and people will have rp as part of the process. I also invite comments on the IGS related to this post in a RP vein or other RP in channels! Judging is also on an In character basis. This is the Seventh year running for this contest so I appreciate if this can be kept in the rp forum like past years))
