The last day for submitting your entries is February 29th, 2012.
The librarians are split up into a few teams to handle each category. You are free to submit your entry to any librarian, but it would be quite dandy if you could submit it to any librarian overseeing the category you are submitting to.
NO MORE THAN ONE ENTRY PER MEMBER IN EACH CATEGORY. MEMBERS MAY WIN ONE MEDAL ONLY. IN THE EVENT THEY WIN MULTIPLE MEDALS, ONLY THEIR ENTRY WITH THE HIGHEST OVERALL VOTES WILL RECEIVE A MEDAL, AND THEIR OTHER SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR ANY EQUAL OR LESSER MEDAL. Librarians shall clerically administer the competition. Librarians shall not be voting on medals except on the "Librarian's Choice" medal, which is a private poll and will be announced in the end with the rest of the awards. A public poll shall be created and the general membership shall select a medal winner among the submissions for each category.
Submissions for this competition must be unique works written specifically for this competition, or otherwise not posted on TWC in the past.
Anyone caught asking for votes during the voting phase in any way, shape or form, on or off this forum, will have their submission immediately disqualified from the competition. In the event this does happen, I can personally guarantee you that you will not know of your entry's disqualification until after voting. This will leave you thinking you were able to sneakily lobby for votes behind my back, and just when you think you've got it, I will slap you hard with my pimp cane. So please ladies and gentlemen, don't pull any crap like this on me, I will see it coming and I will embarrass you for it. Don't say you haven't been warned.
Awards for the winners:
shall be decided by the general membership.
Reputation shall be decided by the Chief Librarian. As it stands, 50 rep for non-medal winning runner-ups and 25 for non-medal winning second runner-ups.
Librarian's Choice Award:
The winner of this award shall be decided by Librarian popular vote.
The award polling will begin after the submissions deadline and polling will be closed after roughly two weeks. Finalist voting will stay open for roughly 10 days. Winners will be announced within the days of the polling coming to a close.
The Chief Librarian is solely responsible for all aspects of the competition. The decisions of the Chief Librarian is final.
The Librarians will at their discretion include entries into the Scriptorium. Submission to the Contest does not assure the article will be archived in the Scriptorium.
