Dec 9: It's the last day to submit entries! Folder closes at 11:59 p.m EST tonight!

Dec 5, 2012: You've got 4 days left to submit your entries!

Nov 19, 2012: How's everyone's entries going? Good, I hope.  There's a little less than 3 weeks left to submit!  Note: please do us a favor and mention the contest in your artist's comments to avoid confusion

Nov 5, 2012: A little more than a month left, have you entered yet? You could win a premium membership! :)

It's that time again, group members!  There are premium memberships and a total of 300 points up for grabs, and if you don't enter, you're not going to get them.  Now, I've had the idea for this contest ever since I wrote about the topic in the summer.  Here is your prompt:

It's December 20th, 2012.  Tomorrow is December 21st, a.k.a the day the world will come to an end.  Write about the events that transpire on an original character's last day on Earth..

There we go.  I will have a folder opened up by the end of the day to submit entries, but here are the rules.

:bulletgreen: Limit of 2000 words.
:bulletgreen: Prose is encouraged, but if you would like to submit poetry, don't be afraid to!
:bulletgreen: You must be a member of the group to enter.
:bulletgreen: One submission allowed per group member.
:bulletgreen: No fanfiction submissions.
:bulletgreen: Deadline is Sunday, December 9th, 2012.  This will allow me to announce winners on the 20th ;)
:bulletgreen: Group rules still apply.  This means that in order to place, your contest submission cannot belong to more than 10 groups (not including WriterArt) during judging.

Seems simple enough, right?  Now for the prizes (which all include features)....

First Place
:bulletpink: 1 year premium membership fron belfastrush
:bulletpink: 150 points from laurotica
Second Place
:bulletpink: 3 month premium membership from belfastrush
:bulletpink: 100 points from laurotica
Third Place
:bulletpink: 1 month premium membership from belfastrush
:bulletpink: 50 points from laurotica

And there we go.  Any questions can be put in the comments of this journal or sent directly to me in the form of a note.  Prize donations are more than welcome.  Good luck to everyone!

I have submitted my piece but it hasn't been approved? It follows the rules, to the best of my knowledge. [link]

I have to apologize for being absent this weekend, but I voted to accept it this afternoon. After another admin votes, it will be accepted to the gallery :)

Ah, okay, thank you. I was kinda worried that it might not be accepted before the deadline. I kinda left it to the last minute... :doh:

May it be something completely surrealistic? Something psychedelic, or symbolistic even?

Whatever you see fit to submit, surrealistic sounds awesome :D

Thank you! :D

And I have a very silly question. I'm new on dA, and this is the first time I'm trying to enter a contest. But I have no idea how to submit my work, could you tell me how I should do it? :oops:
I'm sorry for this silly question, but I don't find the answer online.

It's no problem! When you go to the home page of our group, you should see a "Contribute Art" icon near the top. Click that, and a window should come up where you can choose which deviation you'd like to submit. Remember to select the "2012 Contest Entries" folder before you hit the "submit" button. I hope this helps :)
