Dear friends! It is almost upon us -- another submission deadline to another exciting SIYE challenge!
As a reminder, the topic for Challenge 2017-3: Somebody is going on a magical creature hunt -- tell us about it!
Categories for the challenge include 'Most Adventuresome', 'Most Unexpected' and 'Best Overall'. Stories must be marked as complete by midnight, Nov. 15, in order for award announcements to be made on Dec. 1. By way of old standard caveats, please note that judges are not required to read stories that are classified as 'Restricted', and are permitted to skive off after the 20,000th word of long stories.
For this challenge, we had waived the strict requirement that stories focus on Harry/Ginny, although I believe most stories are fairly HG-centric thus far.
Those people who have judged in the past, please expect a note from me sometime in the coming ~week asking you again for your participation. Those who have not judged in the last, but are interest in doing so are asked to contact me via my profile.
Finally, votes and ideas for the Challenge 2018-1 topic are still being tallied. Comments are a bit distributed, but input will be considered from anyone who replies to this new item, or to any of those time-stamped as below:
2017.08.01 - 05:02AM
