YC 124: Fund Raiser for Writing Contest Prizes

For those who remember, I organize a writing contest every year, the “New Eden Capsuleer’s Writing Contest.” It is open to all capsuleers regardless of faction or allegiance. This year’s contest will be announced in March with a May Deadline for Submissions.

Historically, we’ve tried to offer generous prizes to encourage all capsuleers to share their creativity and their stories! While I’ve already received generous donations from Franco Phonaga and Clementine Lafleur, One Billion isk from ARC, Two Billion isk from Lady Karmilla Kor-Anashtih, Two Billion ISK from Sahara Jackal and 12.5 billion isk from Jinari Otsito. We also have 10 billion isk from Lauralite Anne Brezia to be split between academic and news categories as a special prize.

So! Since it worked well last year, I am holding a Fundraiser Auction and Dinner in Nasreri (close to Sanctum Constellation) at a new facility called “The Hall of Songs.” It is a neutral venue located in one of the stations in that system.

The concept is certain generous souls have donated vacations, trips, ships and even skins for bid and people can secretly bid by mail in advance of the auction with live bids the day of the auction. Winners can then schedule (in the case of an ‘event’) or contract for their prizes after the close of the Auction with the Donors directly. I am sure most of the Donors would allow a plus one with respect to any ‘events’ but confirm with the Donor.

If people are interested in donating, contact me, and I will add you to the list below.

If people are interested in pre-bidding, please mail me your bid. All items start at 25 million isk.

Is this for Donations for Prizes for the Writing Contest ?

Or Things to be Auctioned, to raise Money to be used as Prizes ?

:grey_question:

To be auctioned to raise isk for prizes.

Oh. For the actual prizes, I’ll hustle up some isk. Probably for things like best chase featuring giant udorian land snails or something equally amusing.

Updated to add some new items for the charity auction
