Welcome all, to this year’s Summer Contest for 2015. It’s high time that we, as a fandom and family, come together to celebrate the late Monty Oum’s creativity by collaborating on the biggest contest this group has yet seen! Let’s make him proud, people!
This contest will be a little bit different from the Halloween contest. For starters: We will have two categories: fanart and fanfiction! Both categories will be democratically judged separately.
The theme of this contest will be plain and simple: Summer. That’s it! Go wild, or go simple! It can be one character, all of Team RWBY, all of JNPR, a mix, etc. It can be happy, funny, fanservice-y, or horribly depressing! Imagine an elderly Team RWBY enjoying a hot summer’s sunset in their wheelchairs and wrinkles, fondly recalling the days of their youth. Play around with the spectrum of emotions!
Restrictions: Canon characters, who have appeared on screen, only. No gore. No porn. Bikinis won’t be a problem as long as they’re not g-strings with stilettos, haha! Shipping is welcome, just keep it SFW! There will be strict quality control for this contest, as we want the best. If your prose is horrific, it will be denied. If your drawing is a five minute scribble done with your toes, it will be denied. If your best efforts don’t make the cut, then they don’t make the cut; and we can’t do much about that.
Submissions: All pieces of fanart and fanfiction MUST be clearly labeled, stating that it is an entry to this contest. And it must be submitted to the Summer Contest 2015 folder. There will be strict quality control for this contest, as we want the best. If your prose is horrific, it will be denied. If your drawing is a five minute scribble done with your toes, it will be denied. If your best efforts don’t make the cut, then they don’t make the cut; and we can’t do much about that.
Prizes: We, the admins of this group, are starving students; as such, we must call upon the RWBY family to offer up their talents for contributions. We will update this journal occasionally to bring you the latest updates on that. The specifics of prizes will be finalized after we have a good idea of who is offering what. People are welcome to offer prizes as well as participate in the contest!
