Picture Caption Contest Announcement and Rules
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:48:47 AM »
You don’t have to be a writer to enter this contest. Show off your creativity by describing in one sentence what you see in each picture. Be bold and think beyond the obvious, but most of all have fun with it. There are 4 chances to win.

Official Rules:
Write a 1 sentence caption for any or all of the four pictures and post directly to the thread to enter. The winning caption for each picture will be decided by two rounds of voting. 3 finalists will be selected by a judge (me) for each picture and the winner will be chosen by poll. The winner of each poll will receive a $10 (ten) dollar Amazon credit. Entry deadline is 11:59 pm UTC, May 14, 2017.

The pictures may not be what you expected to see, but this is an exercise in creativity as much as a contest. Imagining story ideas in everyday images is great mental exercise as we are all bombarded by images every day.

I hope to see all the members who don’t consider themselves writers participate, have some fun and play around with an idea. Who knows, it could be the first step to penning your own story. I would also like to see our plaza authors who haven’t had time to participate in the story contests join in here.

I’m excited to see what happens, this could become more popular than the story contests.

Thank you to all the members who have posted entries to the caption contest so far, I hope many more are thinking about their submissions. No rush, you still have plenty of time.

I forgot to mention, anyone who needs to edit their contest submission can do so until the deadline.

The caption contest is now closed to new entries. Thank you to everyone who entered.

A note about the rules. I had to provide rules at the beginning of the contest, and they were made assuming a best case outcome of receiving 15 to 20 captions per picture. Since we didn’t get anywhere close to that, I am dispensing with the prejudging and putting all entries to a public poll.

Voting is now open. Please visit the contest section and vote for your favorite caption for each of the 4 pictures. Voting ends May 24.

Please leave your comments on this contest or any ideas for future events. Thank you.
