    Writing Contest 2018 - Rules, Deadline and Discussion (OP)


    and greetings to all

    In continuation from Writing Contest 2018 ...

    Welcome to the annual story writing contest on Islamicboard.

    This thread will be the main hub for the general discussion about the Story Writing Contest. A separate thread will be created, after the deadline, to house this year's entries.

    Here are some suggested rules for the contest, based on the rules we've had previously:

    Stories can be about any topic, theme or genre, but must not conflict with forum rules.
    Stories must be the entrant's own work and must be in English.
    Stories should not be a translated version of someone else's work in another language.
    Each entrant may submit only one story.
    Stories cannot have been posted already on this forum.
    Stories cannot use existing characters e.g. your story cannot be about the adventures of Batman and Robin.
    Stories can be any length, but no longer than 5,000 words - this is a limit not a target.
    Do not post your story here or anywhere else on the forum (or anything to do with your story), as the contest is supposed to be anonymous. Not the genre, not the title and not even one sentence of it.

    The deadline is tentatively 15 May 2018 - this is the last day on which entries shall be accepted. However, there is leeway to change this if necessary.

    Stories should be submitted by Private Message to the Host - AabiruSabeel. The host will then create the thread for the entries, and post the entries there, once they've all been submitted and the deadline has passed. The host cannot participate in the contest, and cannot vote (as he/she will know who has written what). Stories can be edited and formatted etc however the author chooses before submission, but the Host will not alter or reformat the story once it has been submitted

    If you have any further suggestions, please share them. The parameters are really wide. Read through some of the previous entries to see how wide those parameters are. We've had dramas, crime thrillers, horror, action-adventure, cute stories, and stories with morals etc.

    To all: be sure to check out this thread (Writing Tips) http://www.islamicboard.com/creative...ting-tips.html and by all means feel free to read previous contests. Also feel free to ask any questions you have regarding the competition on this thread.

    Take your time and make your entry the best it can be; really let your creativity loose.

    I would like to thank the brothers and sisters who have hosted and organised the contest in previous years, I have just copied that in this post.


    Let the writing begin!

    I know everyone is busy with 'ibadah because of Ramadhan. Please encourage the participants by taking some time out to read the entries and vote on the poll.
