The end of the year approaches, and that means it's the perfect time for yet another contest! There has been pretty good demand for my contest over the course of the first two seasons, and now that I've already contacted the people that indicated their interest, I'm opening entrance to the general population. Recruitment will be open until I have the requisite number of participants.

For this contest, I hope to begin with either 8 or 16 participants. Here are some quick general rules:

  1. These stories generally range from 500-5,000 words, though I have gone as high as 10,000. That way, these should not be too time-consuming, though you can choose to write a longer story if you want.
  2. These stories must be in English (non-English phrases are accepted if they are short)
Here are some special rules that I want to stress:

  1. Please communicate with me! You must either submit an entry for every round you are included in or let me know that why you are not submitting. I get it, life happens. Just let me know.
  2. You cannot participate in this contest if you have submitted one or more entries in the last two seasons of this contest unless I specially invite you back. Just ask!
Each prompt will be announced at the start of the round. You should look at the previous rounds to get a sense of what I like to do:

Season 2 - Round 1
Season 2 - Round 2
Season 2 - Round 3
Season 2 - Round 4

This contest will be judged by me, CaelChan, and Artsy_Lady. No applications are being accepted for a further judging position.

Prizes include being featured on my page, a custom trophy, a commission, a subscription (if I haven't already), and a potential collaboration with me (if you so choose).

Join by commenting on this thread. This season is going to be bigger and better and the topics are going to be more thought-provoking and interesting. Please, come by and write!

There is themes (as shown by the last eight rounds), but I believe Chiaroscuro is waiting for more people to join.

RIP. I'm unable to be in this contest because I was in season 2 (and lost). I would've loved to join in on the fun again, but nope. Circle of life, I guess.

Hey, Chiaroscuro! I just recently stumbled across this thread, and I find it quite interesting, haha. I have never joined a Forums writing contest before, but I would definitely like to try! But I might need a little bit more information until I can confirm I can join though, such as the theme and type of story you permit. I do admit, I'm not the best at horror, haha. Thanks for using your time to create this. <3

Hi! Normally the theme for a specific round doesn't come out until the actual round starts, but you can take a look at those linked rounds from this last season to see what kind of themes I like to pick. Generally, they're pretty specific themes that (hopefully) allow for a lot of creative license and flexibility. As for type of story, I generally ask for prose between 500-5000 words, but other than that, there have been no other real restrictions.

What time frame can we expect? When will the first deadline be, and how much time will participants have per week?

I'm tempted to take part, but I also know I'm a busy person. ;-;

This depends on how many people sign up or how quickly the spots fill up. I always give one month per round with the option of extension. I’ll start the first round once we have enough people to hold a healthy competition.
