It's time for voting! I've decided that as long as there are enough entries for it, there will be a first, second, and third place winner, as decided through voting. Out of the remaining there will also be a "moderator's pick." As I write very little poetry myself and have less knowledge in the area, the moderator pick will be selected by Princess Ai, as she is the former forum moderator. In the case of this first contest I received a total of four entries, meaning the fourth place contestant will receive the "Ai's pick" by default.
Prizes will be awarded as follows:
First Place: 100,000 points, a reading on Ai's Corner, and possible inclusion in the IntuitionGFX monthly magazine
Second Place: 50,000 points
Third Place: 25,000 points
Moderator's/Ai's Pick: 10,000 points and a reading on Ai's Corner
Voting for this contest will follow the same format at that of the just-completed fiction contest. Please follow these directions:
Send me a PM
with the entry you think deserves first place
, the entry you think deserves second place
, and the entry you think deserves third place
(so you are nominating three separate entries). Also include a comment as to why you have selected that entry for each place. You'll want to think about all factors that make up good writing while you're reading the entries. Your pick for first place should be the one you think is ultimately the best-written in all regards.
The PM you send me should look something like this:
First Place: Entry __ (Comment on the entry)
Second Place: Entry __ (Comment on the entry)
Third Place: Entry __ (Comment on the entry)
General questions can be posted in the main contest thread
, or PMed to me. Voting is set to close on Sunday the 12th of October, 12:00 midnight EST.
