Hello,

We're sorry, but the tournament is closed to new participants. In order to enter the tournament, you must enter from the first round and work your way through the three rounds. You will have to wait for the next contest or tournament, in which case the submission of fanfiction will be specified.

Are you going to separate the pieces into age groups to make it fair for the youngest, or are you just judging as is? I don't mind either way, just wondering.

RollingTomorrow Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013   General Artist
Unfortunately, since many deviants do not show their ages publicly or prefer not to tell us how old they are, we can't really spit everyone into groups that way.

Nevertheless, if we see a piece from a younger member who publicizes their age who made some mistakes but otherwise had good ideas, we do keep that in mind when judging. :nod: We want to help everyone improve through our events and contests.

I have a question, do I have to submit the piece as literature? Or can I have a jpg/png file with the writing on it? (Mainly because I personally don't like DA's literature format)

You can have it as an image file as long as the text is clear and readable. :nod:

You can go for a serious or suspenseful piece, but it's also fine to apply the theme to any genre that works. :nod: For example, if someone wanted to get really creative, they could go with a very different genre like humor and the imminent menace could be a water balloon about to fall on their head. We're very open to how people decide to work with the theme. :D
