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.

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.

Alright, thanks :) I wanted to know because I was looking through them and saw some professional ones, and some poor ones.
