[CONTEST] June 2017: Creative Twist Contest
« on: June 08, 2017, 09:03:55 PM »
June 2017 contest

The contest for June is all about creativity. Each entry will provide creative twist on an existing genre or setting. The submission will explain the genre that they are updating and then go into the creative twist they have applied. You can think of it as an elevator pitch for a new take on an old way of doing things. Applications will have two parts and this month we will be providing a grading rubric.


Application Part 1: Setting the Base Genre

This portion should be no more than 300 words and it should explain the genre, setting, or universe that you are making adaptions or changes too.

Application Part 2: The Twist

This portion should be no more than 1500 words and it should explain the twist or creative change you are making to the setting. You may use examples, short stories, simple explanation, or even images to convey why the change you have made to the original setting, genre, or universe is creative and beneficial in some way.


Grading Rubric: 50pts Creativity , 50pts Pitch

The rubric is fairly self explanatory but the creativity or uniqueness of the application will be taken into account. Is it actually a new twist or a cliche you're pitching? The pitch portion of the grading will be based on how well you sell or convey the change. How clearly you make the judges understand it.


All submissions should be submitted to Admin@optionalrealities.com and be submitted as either googledocs or as a PDF. If you need to convert to a PDF you can use https://www.freepdfconvert.com/
