Hello Members and Visitors!

Welcome to InspireTheUninspired's last contest of the year and first contest of the new year!

With the help of our absolutely fantastic admins and affiliates we have managed to come up with this prize list! So please give our affiliates and donators some love!!! :dalove:


Theme: This contest has the theme of 'Memories and Resolutions'. What are your memories of the year gone? What do you hope to achieve in the new year? We are looking for mostly factual deviations but you may write about fictional situations as well, it won't hinder the way we will judge your piece. Interpret the theme however you like and Be Creative! :D

Kymira12 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure :D The theme is simply memories of the past and your resolution for the new year. You can go as far back as you'd like and make it as fictional as you like but it just needs to keep with the idea of the contest. You can give us more insight to your piece in your Author's Description if you think it may be too vague :aww:

Would it be all right if the story is not set in 2012? ^^; I have something in mind that is based on something that happened to me this year and on my New Year resolutions for 2013, but I find it much easier (and more fun) to write about personal experiences if I set them in the Middle Ages and write about some guy in a suit of armour competing in a joust rather than some crazy woman in a discoloured T-shirt entering writing competitions. Would it be all right if the story is set in the past or in an alternate universe, as long as it still relates to the theme of memories and resolutions?

You're welcome. We are actually still looking for judges right now since we definitely need more to make the judging process more fair. Would you happen to know anybody that may be willing to help? Unfortunately, our others admins will be unable to help in that time frame which is totally understandable :aww:
