We are the Champions [Banner Contest]

Heyloo y'all, Iris here!

So the winners of this challenge will need a banner to put in their summary saying they won, right? So we're calling YOU to submit a banner!

Size: 350 x 100 pixels; about this big. Your banner should be able to fit inside that rectangle I linked to. E-mail if you need any more clarification about the size. (the.iris.messenger@gmail.com). Don't be shy!

Text: Twilight Archives Jane Challenge Winner

Anything larger than 350 x 100 pixels will be disqualified if it is so out of proportion to that size that I cannot scale it down. The deadline for all banner entries is February 15, SUNDAY. Please e-mail the banners to me (the.iris.messenger@gmail.com) with the banner attached in .jpg or .png format and your penname on the archives. 

The winners will be chosen by a vote! I'll start a forum topic in the poll section and link to it from here, and you all will vote on which banner YOU think should be given to all the winners!

Have fun!

------------------

Hello guys! For those of you that are new to Twilight Archives, I'm Jacquelyn. :)

At the enormous amount of stories and great ideas that are rolling around on this site, I'd like to start another one-shot challenge. The theme is Jane. Take a peek into her life, whether it's in the past or present, and unleash your writing skills! Was she always the harsh, petite girl that was always ready to please Aro? Or is she somehow plotting her beloved master's demise? Was Jane the cause of the Volturi's rise? Or will she make them fall? Get creative with this one, guys!

The Rules:

1) Normal submission rules (must exceed 500 words, proper line format, spelling, grammar, ect.).

2) It must be in one point of view, no switching. Any one character counts as that, but only if the focus remains on Jane and the character's view point makes sense in the story.

3) Please stick to canon! :)

4) Your story must be validated before it is emailed to the mod.

5) Please include a short summary in the appropriate slot of your story along with the title of 'Jane One-Shot Challenge'.

Please submit all stories to these email addresses after they've been validated: dragontodragons@yahoo.com,the.iris.messenger@gmail.com, gabriella_523@hotmail.com, j3nny_b4by@yahoo.com, bubble_069321@yahoo.com,kaiwynn@gmail.com. Please make sure the subject is stated as 'Jane One-Shot Challenge' and be sure to include your pen name! We'd love to acknowledge all of your stories, but can't give credit to them if we don't know the author!

The deadline for all one-shots is FEBRUARY 15th, SUNDAY. We will be announcing the winners sometime shortly after.

Also, winners will consist of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and two honorable mentions. On a side note, however, everyone is welcome to submit a banner for the winners (once they are chosen).

Some Other Points (I thought I'd clear up):

- Poetry is accepted only if it is at least 500 words and the focus remains on Jane.

- All one-shots must be limited to a chapter.

- Writing perspective is not limited to third person (narrative).

- Please only submit one one-shot for the challenge. If you submit more than one, all but the original will be ignored.

- If there are any problems, with validation especially, please comment.

 

Have fun, guys!

By iluvedwardcullen

Posted 26 Jan 09

Yay, a new challenge :D And with a lovely, far-away deadline, too. I love you :) By the way, have I congratulated the new mods yet? I don't think so. Let me do that now. Congratulations!

By black2red

Posted 26 Jan 09

Thank you! :)

By chadley

Posted 26 Jan 09

Yay! New challenge! I just have a quick question - what if our stories aren't validated? Mine are automatically posted when I submit them.

By black2red

Posted 26 Jan 09

If your story still follows the rules, then it will definitely be counted. :)

By iluvedwardcullen

Posted 27 Jan 09

Thanks for the list!

By exgymnastbritt

Posted 28 Jan 09

ok i have a question.
can it be in like a narritive pov? or does it have to be from a person's pov? or like idk...haha. =]

By Iris Messenger

Posted 28 Jan 09

yes, it can be a narrative POV, as long as it focuses on Jane ... correct me if I'm wrong Jacquelyn :D

By Errina Cullen

Posted 28 Jan 09

Hmmm . . . interesting. i'm might actually try this one instead of just reading them.

By black2red

Posted 28 Jan 09

Right, Iris. :)

By SpaklesInTheSunlight

Posted 28 Jan 09

I'll have a go at this one, it'll be hard, so I think I may just do it as poetry lol

By black2red

Posted 28 Jan 09

Be my guest.. Just make sure it's at least 500 words. :)

By Midnights Darkness

Posted 29 Jan 09

An interesting idea. i might give this a shot. From someone else's POV.

By Moonlight Hunter

Posted 29 Jan 09

hey, is there a chapter limit? i mean, i know that most one shots are one or two chapters long. but do i have to put it all in one very long chapter?

By black2red

Posted 29 Jan 09

Yep, a limit to one chapter.

By Stupid_lamb245

Posted 30 Jan 09

yes, Great Idea nothing better than a challenge...but about how long does it take to get it approved?

By black2red

Posted 30 Jan 09

No later than a day.

By exgymnastbritt

Posted 01 Feb 09

By YouAreNotLeavingMe

By Iris Messenger

Posted 02 Feb 09

Please only send in 1 one-shot. Once again, Jacquelyn, correct me if I'm wrong :P and thanks about the banner :D

By black2red

Posted 02 Feb 09

Yep, please only one submission. :)

By girlysquirrelly

Posted 04 Feb 09

i think it would be easier to make a banner after the winners have been announced so that we can make the banner relate to the writing, not just a random banner... just thought you should know...

By exgymnastbritt

Posted 04 Feb 09

girlysquirrelly, you are brilliant. haha.
as are you, j3nn.
banners certainly are lovely.
jeez, we certainly have smartypants people here.
haha.
sorry. i just got done with the CA high school exit exam today, and my brain feels kind of like mush.
so i'm just commenting on how brilliant people are.
wonderful, splendid, yup yup.

By Moonlight Hunter

Posted 05 Feb 09

well, i'm done. now all i have to do is wait for the winners to be announced

By Moonlight Hunter

Posted 06 Feb 09

hey, i have another question. When we've submitted our entry to one of those email address's do we get a response, saying something like: got your email etc.?

By Iris Messenger

Posted 06 Feb 09

Moonlight Hunter, I've been replying to the people that've sent me entires, just to make sure they know the e-mail went through fine -- don't know about the others.

By SpaklesInTheSunlight

Posted 06 Feb 09

I sent mine to Gabriella a few days back. So may the best fic win! And Good Luck to everyone! =D

By exgymnastbritt

Posted 06 Feb 09

i think i sent mine to you [iris messenger] but haven't heard anything back...i just sent it to the email addresses on the list by jaquelin.
=]

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 06 Feb 09

I'm excited for this... I haven't written anything Twilight related in such a long time, maybe this will get me back into it. Then I can update some of my other WiPs... anyway -- Did you want us to send it to everyone on the list, or just one? Probably a stupid question, but that's just me. :P

By black2red

Posted 08 Feb 09

That's a good question, actually. Please send submissions to all the email addresses listed! On Wednesday 11th, I'll post all recieved submissions on the news feed.

By addictedtotwilight

Posted 08 Feb 09

Ah, sheesh -- going to find more email addresses...

By Eternitys_charm

Posted 09 Feb 09

By exgymnastbritt

Posted 11 Feb 09

By black2red

Posted 11 Feb 09

The news feed has just become longer :)

By sketchygirl

Posted 11 Feb 09

I know the contest doesn't end until Sunday, but I was just wondering, how long does it typically take to choose a winner? This is my first challenge ever since I joined TwilightArchives, and I'm sure there'll be plenty of submissios to judge, but I'm just not familiar with how things work... =]

By sketchygirl

Posted 11 Feb 09

I'm sorry, not just A winner, but the winners. =]

By j3nn

Posted 12 Feb 09

It takes about a week, possibly less or more... it really depends on how quickly we can communicate with eachother and pick one. They'll be announced in the news feed, just like the challenge was :]

Good luck with the contest!

By awsomealice94

Posted 12 Feb 09

oh, wow. i wasn't going to submit my story because i thought there was no chance i could ever be picked for a winner-i thought there were like fifty entrys! and i'm not that good so it seemed like a no brainer to just skip this one. but jeezums...well if you guys need another submittion, i guess i'll e-mail mine in the next couple of days. thats surpriseing-Jane is such a cool topic, i would have thought more people would participate!
