Member Created Contests

Member Created Contests Essentially what it says on the tin... we are in the midst of a bit of a contest overhaul with the intentions of throwing out some of the traditional ways of doing things such as contests always falling on or around holidays etc. As part of that, we would really like to encourage you guys to create and run your own contests as and when you fancy doing so.

If you do fancy making some contests, please drop me a PM or post below with the following information:

Contest Name:
Brief Description:
Duration:

Code: Select all

[b]Contest Name:[/b]
[b]Brief Description:[/b] 
[b]Duration:[/b]
These can tie in with a holiday or they can be completely independent of the calendar year, it's entirely up to you.

If accepted, you will be in charge of running, promoting and closing your contest. How you choose the winner, again, is down to you.

Any questions below. :smile:

I will have a think. Do they have to relate to a holiday or can they be random?

Contest Name: "RPCO's Author Games", or "Writer Games", or "Story", whatever, some variant.

Brief Description: A sort of structured take on the Hunger Games. Everyone joins up and enters then gets randomized into a bracket structure where they get paired up against either one other person (or more, if needed) to compete for "survival". Each "round" consists of a different writing prompt/scenario/styles that should get more and more intense as the rounds go on. The two competitors will each take their spin on writing a piece and will be judged thereafter. Maybe even require the combatants to work together from time to time to make a joint story like the Sync or Swim competition to really throw a wrench into things. Judges will determine who "wins" each round and "survives" to go on to the next. Maybe there could be a "competitors vote on their own champion" and have the people participating select who wins -- excluding themselves and towards the end, of course. At the end, whoever remains is crowned Victor of the Games!

Duration: Idk. I can see this being a recurring challenge but if not... ooooh.. let's say 12 people signed up.. maths
...
2-3 months?

EDIT: This game (and each game thereafter) could be themed after a specific terrain/environment, and so perhaps the gamemasters can come up with different scenarios that are inspired/revolve around that particular environment?

EXAMPLE: The games take place in a desert
  • Prompts: Sun, Drought, Mirage
  • Larger Prompt: "Discovering paradise in a forbidden place", "If you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen", etc.
Should also be a twist in each round. Some sort of "challenge" they each need to hurdle. Not only is the terrain dangerous in Hunger Games, but so are the threats they add in. You could be done in either by your opponent, the theme, or the obstacle.
