There will actually be two challenges running at the same time - a fanfic challenge, and a fanart challenge. You are welcome to enter both, if you wish.
The theme for this challenge is Summer, mainly because everyone here seems to live on the other side of the world, where it's approaching summer. All entries must follow this theme.
This challenge will run from today (May 21) to July 21 - so that's a whole two months to get your entries in. Voting will start on July 21, and will run for a week until July 27.
All entries must be posted to this community - a link back to your journal / ff.net / deviantart / whatever is perfectly fine, but there at least needs to be a link here so that I know that you intend to enter the fic/art in the challenge, XD;. Your posts must also start with [Summer Challenge] and be tagged with 'challenge' (and, of course, a fanart or fanfic tag).
1. Your post must have the following heading for the story
2. You may enter one story, with a minimum of 1000 words. If posting your entry directly to the comm, they should go under a cut.
Preview (if applicable):
2. You may enter with one fanart - please make sure that any large images go under a cut.
1st, 2nd and 3rd places in both competitions will get a banner each and bragging rights. 1st places get that and... a bag of e-cookies? askdfkdfj.
If you have any other questions, don't hestitate to ask! Also:
