Yes, it says contests for a reason. For reasons that will be obvious in a moment I'm announcing all 3 together.

As you probably figured out by now there is not a Halloween contest this year. The date the previous one ended made it impractical to have one this year. Instead we have a Fall themed contest.

Before I get to specific rules for each contest a couple of general rules:

  • Stories must comply with the site rules. This will be strictly enforced for all but the Valentines Day one. Certain exceptions will be made for that one. See the details below.
  • Stories must be under 35,000 words.
  • Stories must have not been previously published on any site or in any medium. So no, you can't submit that ABDL smut ebook you're selling on Amazon for $1.99.
  • You may submit 2 stories to each contest. See the details of each below for specifics on the why for this one.
  • The submissions forum we used for the previous contest will be made available again. There are 6 prefixes defined for tagging your stories. Please use the correct ones for the correct contest.
  • You will have 1 week to edit your submissions to fix typos or missing words. Beyond such fixes your story must be completed at the time of submission. If you make substantial changes to the story after submitting it then it will be removed and you will not be allowed to resubmit it or submit any other story for the relevant contest.
  • The polls for each contest will be posted separately. See specific dates below.
  • No extensions will be given for the Winter and Valentines contests. You seriously will have no excuse for not getting these in on time
  • Your story does not have to be ABDL themed. Let's be honest though and admit you'll have a better chance of winning if it is.
  • Stories will posted via the Contest Entry bot as in the summer contest and comments later moved to your original submissions after the reveals.

So, now that that fun is out of the way, on the specifics of each

Fall Contest 2017
  1. Entries must be submitted by November 15th, 2017 at 11:59pm CST. The scripts that flag late submissions will have some flexibility builtin to account for last minute submissions. Stories will be posted in the voting forum on November 18th. The voting thread will go up on the 20th. So don't wait until the last minute or you'll have a much shorter editing window.
  2. This should not need to be said, but stories must be Fall themed.
  3. If you want to submit two stories one of them must be Halloween themed and contain one of the following (and yes, random list is random ):
    • A werewolf
    • A declined credit card transaction
    • Sugar free candy

  4. Voting will end on the 30th. When the poll is available if you have your timezone in your account set properly it will tell you the exact time the poll will close for you. Reveals will happen on the 1st of December.

Yep, short list on this one

Winter Contest 2017
Pretty much the same as the fall rules, except Winter theme, and for submitting a second story it must be New Year's themed and contain at least one of the following:
  • A drunk vampire
  • A teddy bear
  • An unused diaper left out in the open
  • A church choir made up entirely of cats (note: any story that pulls this off in a way that isn't completely ridiculous gets an automatic free vote from me )

Submissions must be in by December 25th. Will be posted publicly on December 28th. The poll for voting will close on January 15th to give you plenty of time to read and vote.

Valentines Day 2018
  1. Stories must be Valentines themed with one exception mentioned below
  2. Stories with sex scenes will be permitted that might not normally be. If you want to write such a story please PM me for specifics on this one.
  3. If you want to submit a second story, it must take place on MARCH 14th and include one of the following:
    • a radio broadcast about an event that happened on Valentines day.
    • An unusual gift
    • A dream scene that takes place on Valentines Day.
    • A random item or scene assigned by Clawdia. If you want to do this one PM me. If you don't like the first one you get you'll have a chance to ask for a different one

Submissions will taken until the February 14th. Public posting will happen on the 16th. Voting will go until March 14th.

If you have any questions please feel free to PM me and I will answer them as soon as possible. I will also be making a thread for this purpose in Board Member Stories later.
