The result of the context is going to be announced soon ! Thank you for all of those who participated !
Welcome to the sixteenth Felarya group contest !
This time it's for writers. As usual the winner will be featured in the group page, and will get to choose the theme of the next contest
Our previous winner,
, has chosen the theme of this one : Protectors
Felarya is a harsh world, full of dangers and hungry creatures. To survive, many of the smaller inhabitants have to hide their settlements but sometimes, some of them manage to come to an agreement with a local pred who then become their protector. The reasons and the term of the "deal" can vary widely of course: Maybe the protection is granted in exchange for something, for example a service the pred can't perform themselves ? Or maybe it's an act of kindness from the pred who has come to view those small folks as friends ? Maybe it means the protector has completely written off the small folks of their menu? or maybe things remain more ambiguous?
Write a story with that theme in mind, and show how the two parties cohabit together. You can chose the point of view of the protector or the protected or even something in between if you wish
Don't forget you can consult the wiki if you need some infos : www.felarya.com/wiki/index.php…
The story will be judged on :
-The writing : Does the story flows well ? is is interesting, original, captivating and pleasant to read ?
-Descriptions of the environment and the setting. In this theme the interaction between characters is of course especially important.
Rules are simple :
-The deviations must be within the deviantart policies.
-To enter the contest you must join the group
-All entries must be posted in the GROUP CONTEST gallery.
- Judging will be made by a panel of judges and me.
-If you enter the contest, you must be *ready* for the eventuality that you will loose. There will be only one winner... So if you can't accept that idea, then it's better you don't enter..
-The contest will last four weeks, though the date is not engraved in iron.
- Multi-entries are allowed but avoid submitting more than two ( or remove one previous entry from the contest before )
I think this cover all. This contest is essentially mean for fun, so please enjoy it !
Comments and suggestions are very welcome ! ^_^
