View Full Version : POLL: Budding Authors! A Short Story Comp? - Significant Prizes to be won

Can I just see a show of hands for a Short Story Comp?

Anyone can enter - Theme would of course be, as we have done in the past, SH based (Think of it as the best ever Patrol Report you sent back to base) You would have plenty of time to put it together, and there will be some great prizes on offer I promise you! All you have to do is put some words together that excite us!

To make it viable, it has to have concerted support. Talented story writing is not just thrown together, it takes time, brain power, devotion and commitment, and those budding story tellers out there in the community will, I'm sure, be inspired to contribute if they know their stories will be appreciated and voted for http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Cool idea RJ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I was thinking on the other day for something similar like this but instead using screenshots , edit them with the wordings ala comic and make them sequential to make a short comic story http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I will have a go RJ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif But I'm sure you will agree that we need some time to come up with the goods http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This is a wonderful idea. I am no yarn spinner, but I am an avid reader. I hope this project takes off and if it does I will definitely read every story and vote.

BTW, the ZKMT is searching desperately for a good writer for it's next project. We need someone who can write dialog. Those interested could also think of this competition as an audition for joining the Zoo Keepers Modding Team.

Thanks for the positive comments so far http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Submission deadline would be set way off, perhaps December - to give people plenty of time. I would of course be reminding everyone periodically so they don't forget http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Let's run this poll for a week, see what further interest it garners and we'll go from there http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Errr ... "it takes time, brain power, devotion and commitment" ...

Well, I can supply the two commas and the "and" in that sentence, so perhaps I'll have a go ...
